The iPad

For those of you who haven’t been following tech news lately, Apple announced their Tablet/Slate/Netbook thingy (that’s the technical term for it) today–the iPad. Check out the link for a video and full description of the device. It’s basically a big iTouch. No camera on it, and no phone, but it comes with a slew of apps and other cool things, all for a starting price of $499(!). What do I think about it? I think I want one–too bad I can’t afford it. It has an optional keyboard, great video and games options, internet . . . Lots of cool stuff. It had been overhyped big time before the launch, and so it seems there is some disappointment in tech circles, but I think it’s going to do very well. The launch video I was watching had over 100,000 people following it. For a product launch. That’s a good sign right there. It’ll launch in late March.

What do you all think?
