    Alright so i just want out and picked up the new apple IPAD. 32gb wifi model.

    It has a ton of good features like the maps which can search any ware for you and pinpoint areas or stores and give you directions with "live" Traffic patterns. Also a lot of the apps for the iphone that i like run on it as well.


    THE CONS.
    1) Does not have flash and there is no way to put flash on it so far. Does have a youtube app which works good. But if there going to have a working youtube app they might as well have just put flash enabled on it.

    2) Does not come with head phones ( Not that i would use them anyway ) But you would think it would have come with it.

    3) Had to edit to add this..................You cant mutily task on it ????? That really sucks. You should be able to at least do 2 things at once.

    Conclusion............Its ok for a toy but not up to any real standers for getting anything done on it. (I wish Microsoft would just come out with a similar touch screen tablet, With a good look and design. Cause if there was a PC based one that was decent, i could see how that would be very useful.

    Microsoft (windows) doesn't make hardware.


    HP does make hardware.

    Or the Zune. As for the HP Slate looks like Microsoft is doing the OS tablet. I guess history might repeat itself, Apple comes out with something great, microsoft copies and license's it to Tablet manufacturers, etc, etc..

    I was thinking about getting it when I initially saw it probably 9 months ago, but I lost interest when I learned details of it. It's really no different than an iPhone except that it doesn't have 3G (yet).
