Apple In what everybody already saw coming for weeks (months) now, Apple has just unveiled its latest product, a tablet called the iPad. Basically a bigger version of the iPhone, Steve Jobs presented the iPad during a press event in San Francisco. The most interesting news? It's powered by... An Apple processor, called the A4. The most shocking news? The price.

But the software has castrated this thing out of the gate.


Funny, because 3rd party software support and the App Store mechanism is the best argument for buying the tablet.

The range and quality of games & apps available for £5.99 or less, plus the number of apps specifically designed for multitouch, accelerometer, compass and so on, far from castrate the device.

EDIT: I appreciate the point - the iPhone/iPad shouldn't need apps to work around the fact you can't mount them like a USB stick, for instance. You seem very angry though - go get someone to port Haiku to it and see if you like it more then! ;-)
