The iPad. Is it really that magical?

iPad. Whoop-dee-doo.

Steve jobs unveiled apple’s new product the ipad in San Francisco this week. Although apple is calling it “magical” and “revolutionary.” I cant help but think this device looks like an old wolf in sheep’s clothing.

Back in 2007, Apple launched a little game-changer called the iPhone, which offered consumers a touch pad phone and computer all in one tiny package — revolutionary stuff there. It was user friendly, looked cool and soon enough everybody and their mom had one.

Although the iPad does have some cool features like a 10+ hr battery life and an iTunes style bookstore, it also has a lot of flaws. It can’t multitask, so if you want to listen to music and browse the web, you’re out of luck. It also doesn’t have GPS, or a camera.
From what I gather, the iPad is an oversized, stripped down iPhone without the phone. Yeah it has a full size keyboard, but is it really worth $599 for a 32 GB iPad when a 32 GB iPhone is $299?

The iPad is set to hit Apple stores in April. There are already rumors of a more MacBook-like version set to succeed the iPhone-like iPad. Is this another game-changer from Apple? What’s the value of cornering the netbook market — the small, niche netbook market?
