a punch in the face is more useful then one of those pieces of shite
like I said, I am agreeing with you because because apple put an f**ing ipod os on it rather than a proper os wich just makes it  useless
if however apple do release something similar running a proper os  I would buy one

When my iPhone is doing nothing, it drains no battery. I had a fully charged 100% iphone, played games for like 2 hours till it was at 8%.

I woke up and it was still at 8%.

So sure standby time is awesome, but actual usage time can be ffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffff.

I'm underwhelmed so probably wouldn't invest in one yet. However, if Apple fix the issues with the device I may be tempted as the hardware itself is fundamentally sound.

I don't think they will. Companies have lost $ selling netbooks instead of full sized devices, I don't think apple wants to fall into that trend

RE: iPad Reactions
I'm surprised so many of you are so close-minded.

People who aren't tech savvy will really want this thing. My aunty wants one and countless people at school want one. They think it's 'cool'.

It has potential for sure, backgrounder (as sam said) exists for the JB devices, so it won't be hard to port over when it's jailbroken. It also has double the CPU power meaning even more powerful games (seen the NFS: Shift game on the iphone. Amazing graphics for such a small device, and great gameplay). Double that and wow.

Anyway, browsing a web on the table with your hands will work.

My aunty said she has a notebook and it's too small with all the keyboard and stuff, generally hard to look at, whereas the iPad is just there, no keyboard to mess about with or tiny touchpad, just use the screen to navigate.

I know it will work, and i'm actually thinking of buying one. Jailbreakers will find a way to put flash on the device.

Non-tech savvy people are going to jailbreak them then?

Lookin down at a screen is unnatural as is typing with your hands elevated or vertical. The laptop design is ideal and the ipad is totally wrong IMO

You shouldn't have to hack a product to be able to use it properly though :/

Any I'm sure that anyone who isn't tech savvy won't want to be spending 400+ on a gimmicky gadget.

Do non-tech savvy people have the 50 ipod touch....or the 250 ipod shuffle?  I rest my case ;)
