[drool]

Do you think the keyboard dock will ever work with the iPhone?

Could this be the end of the iPod touch?

I wonder if the Kindle app will be discontinued or locked out from the iPad...

I have to admit I'm intrigued by this. As an iPod Touch JUNKY this almost seems like pure win!

Pros:

-Huge screen
-10 hour battery
-3G Data Service option for $30/mo and no contract.
-100% compatibility with existing iPhone apps.

But then again:

-9.7" screen not super portable (can't stick this in your pocket).
-Pretty hefty price tag.
-All of this extra space and we're still only dealing with 8-64Gbs of storage?
-While all iPhone games should run alright, many will be nearly unplayable until their controls are optimized for this new platform (your thumbs can only reach so far).

If this weren't all enough I JUST upgraded to my iPod Touch 3G last Christmas and would feel like an idiot upgrading again after 3 months!

Hey Tong, color me confused, is this processor really a significant step up from the iPhone 3GS?

That's actually a good question. It's a good step up: 1GHz vs. 600MHz. For all that eye-candy effects and drawing to a big screen, the iPad will need more power.

Hey Tong,

Is this true?

Display
-9.7-inch (diagonal) LED-backlit glossy widescreen Multi-Touch display with IPS technology
-1024-by-768-pixel resolution at 132 pixels per inch (ppi)
-Fingerprint-resistant oleophobic coating
-Support for display of multiple languages and characters simultaneously


I've heard many stating as fact there is no such coating for the iPad.
