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.

"This will piss all you whiners off on how fast this sells out."

Simple question. Do you think this will be the success that was iPhone, original iPods, MacBook Air, or even the iTouch?

Honest answer, please.

I have no doubt that Apple will sell a good bunch of these things. Their marketing, their name/reputation, their fans, and their slick packaging, all pretty much guarantee at least moderate success.

But I'm also wondering if will expand sales, or if it will cannibalize iTouch or MacBook sales.

I'm kind of scratching my head on this one. It just seems like a bigger iTouch, or even an overpriced Netbook with the keyboard hacked off.

And, as Thom noted, it seems like it lacks the polish, attention to detail, and general slickness of past Apple products.
