    Seems like a great device to internet on if you quickly want to check something. Like an iPhone, but bigger. The thing is, it'll be really expensive...

    Is Steve Jobs an idiot?
    You don't build a device like that and only have it run iPhone apps, you install Mac OSX, surely.

    If it is not a substitute for a "normal" Notebook I think this is not a good idea...

    I think it is smart, that they`ll market this as a netbook-like device but I never understood, who would like to have a netbook at all, next to a normal Notebook and a phone (which nowadays all have internet-capabilities)!

    netbooks are bought because they have a normal desktop OS with all it's possibilties in a small lightweight package. also it runs for a long time on battery (even longer than this iShit)

    Now apple released a scaled up iPhone with really bad battery life, no good OS and being expensive as hell.

    In an amazing form factor with 10" capacitive touchscreen and IPS panel underneath.

    Just because it runs similar software doesn't make it comparable to a very different device. Potential usage is completely different.

    If those prices are correct, that's a LOT cheaper than I was expecting.

    Ah, but remember for Apple $499 = £499, not £309 like it should be at current dollar/pound rates.

    I won't. Too expensive and I'm sure better and cheaper products are going to come out from another brand.
    I haven't bought an iPod, I bought the Creative Zen, and boy, am I glad I did that.
    Gonna be the same with the iPhone, I'm just holding out till a real killer appears (with all the functions I want) and then I will buy that.
