Sure, but what I find more interesting is that Apple also ironically created the most promising open web app platform, which may eventually undermine the App Store itself. [...] The iPad is the first mainstream device which combines all of the following factors: reasonably powerful hardware, a (potentially) huge user base, a mature WebKit implementation, and constant 3G internet capabilities. All the dominoes are in place, and I think that the iPad will knock the first one down."

It’s almost certainly ARM (Did Steve say this on stage, I think he did, but I can’t recall for certain?) for iPhone compatibility, and simply because ARM is a good choice. It may well be a very customised ARM, but similar enough nether the less.

I’m still waiting to know the UK price. They always over price it. £300 would be a killer price, £400, acceptable. Anything above and it’ll be universally ignored.
