Apple Yeah, just in case people think we forgot: Apple launched its iPad today. It's just that since the rest of the web is pretty much clogged with iPad "news" items at this point, I don't really know what to add; who'd you rather hear from, someone who owns one, or someone like me, the small orphan child pressing his face to the glass of a candy shop full of delight he can't afford (because he lives in the wrong country)? About the only meaningful item I've seen today is Engadget's iPad review, so let's take a quick look at that one.

Thom, get a little bit creative, as a consuming device it's perfect. Reading books and comics, watching TV shows, news, surfing the Web. And it's much easier to carry around than a 1.5kg laptop.

That said, I would never ever buy an iPad, because my computer should be more than an interactive TV.

I'm waiting for good Android tablets. The Dell Mini 5 and the Notion Ink Adam are much more interesting than the iPad.

And Androids tablets are flooding the market soon and will be much cheaper than the iPad.
