Apple Yes, yes, I apologise. After Kroc's story earlier today, and together with this one, we now have three stories in a row on the Ipad iPad (sorry, I can't ban camel case from OSNews just yet). So, what are we going to do? Predictions? Criticism? More details? No - I want to explain what I think the differences are between the introduction of the iPod and the iPhone, and that of the iPad.

I think you may be right. I will be waiting for version 2.0, at least.

What I was really hoping for was something more MacBook than iPhone, but with Cocoa Touch elements. For me, it does not replace my iPhone or MacBook Pro, so it's not an 'in between' product. It is yet another product I would need to carry around.

However, if you have been looking at picking up a Kindle or a Nook, but wanted a more functional device, I would say go get an iPad. The book reader looks great and it uses ePub, which I think B&N uses for their books, so there is the possibility that you may be able to use these books with iBooks. At the very least, you will be able to use the B&N eReader on the iPad.

Cool technology, but it would have been more enticing with at least a user facing camera.
