Had a look at the iPad today after work. It had only just been released here.

Not a bad device, was smaller than I thought. Looks amazing, really like the iTunes player and the photo album.
Spoke to the guy there about how it's been selling. He said they had a morning shipment which sold out right away, and they had a afternoon delivery which also sold out and is now in back order.

^ I still can't get near my apple store to get a look . . . going to wait for the madding crowds to dissipate a little before I go in and have a play . . . at the moment they still have security and you need to queue up just to get in love it . . . don't think I'll be buying one this year though . . . too damn expensive in this part of the world comparitively speaking . . . over $1000 for the 64g with wifi and 3G

I think the iPad is pretty f'ing cool, I just can't justify the purchase price right now.

^ yup . . . at the moment, through my workplace I could get a brand spanking new 13" Macbook with all the bells and whistles for $1,200 so over $1,000 for the iPad seems a little crazy to me . . . I'm happy to wait and play with everybody elses' till the price comes down

i figured the ipad would go over well since ereaders are all the rage now, but i still can't believe they're this successful. i won't even consider getting one until they add (if they do at all) handwriting to text software.

I'm still more amazed by what it can't do than by what it can do.

^ sort of agree with you there . . . will be interesting to see what the 2nd gen model adds . . . and maybe by that time the price will be a little more on the level . . .

yeah. i mean, it's just a huge ipod touch. touch screens sure are nifty but i couldn't possibly consider spending that kind of money.

As fervent of an Apple guy as I am, the Ipad just holds no interest for me right now. I have a laptop and I have an ipod touch, don't see the need for the Ipad, unless I'm missing something about its capabilities.

My old Motorola phone seems like it's about to crap out after six years or so, so Apple better cough up a Verizon iPhone pretty damn soon.
