Yawn. It's a giant iPhone.


... without the Phone...

I had been expecting an OS X tablet, this thingy is too limited in software and hardware, hate the closed approach of the iPhone.

Is it just me, or does he look a little bit ashamed of himself holding up that silly thing?



You are so right! :-)

Technolgy has not advanced so much as merged. I think tablets are a good idea, but I like having a keyboard and a touch screen is Ok.. but fiddly. It's a shame most new devices are glossy looking on the outside, like a box of chocolates with very little content! :)

Can't install my own apps - I'm restricted to those Apple thinks I should be allowed to use.


I don't think that's quite the case, I believe that (at least on the iPhone) if you download the SDK you can install any app you can program.

Could be wrong though.

Yes, you can install anything you write on a limited number of devices, you just need the device id which you can get through iTunes.

I'll take an iPad home anytime!  I currently have a WiFi Apple iPod Touch which I use to surf the web, check email and play games on.  Hardly ever use it for music.  I'd buy some books but it's too small to read.  I think the device that should feel threatened is the Kindle.  There's an ap to read Kindle books...

Not to mention I can use it as a remote for my Apple TV!!

Especially when it's twice as powerful and half the price of a SAM.....

You know, looking on the site it's actually really swayed me towards it, especially with iWork. This is pretty much a full computer, with all of the the BS cut out. Maybe in 20 years when the price has gone down, and power has gone up, we can all carry one instead of paper and a laptop. I don't even care if it has multitasking beyond "play music while I do X". This is what a computer should be: unintrusive as possible.

So far I've only seen emulators blocked from the iPhone. You know, I'm not really bothered by that, I can pick up a C64 for £3 at a car boot sale. And it's much more fun. Spy hunter is hard enough as it is, I don't need the scallys on the bus distracting me.

Well, you missed the point. The point was the justification of the pricing not the price, which is typical 'got you by the balls' pricing from Apple. Put another way, what we base our prices on in front of the public.

New amiga hardware is pricey because of the low volume and high development cost for a small company (and numerous other variables) - I could understand those things...

Oh yeah, and it's not a phone.

iPad - FAIL

That doesn't justify paying £100 for a low end computer from 1993, even if it is clean and in a box.
