iPad? or iFlop?

ipad

I’m not convinced yet. I think this thing is basically an unnecessarily over-sized iPhone that doesn’t let you make phone calls. I think I’m safe to predict that I will officially not be coppin’ the “iPad”. And I love Apple-anything. I’m typing this very post on my 1-month old super-sized screen iMac – but I don’t know about this one. This may be one of Apple’s first flops in a long time – or it may very well be a commercial success like its iPod and iPhone counterparts. But I will hold my final opinion to the side until I hold this thing in front of my face and see what its made of. Read below for full specs:

According to Apple, this unit has a 10 hour battery life, built-in wi-fi connectivity, and it starts at $499. One thing it doesn’t have though: A camera.
