Hopefully only to bludgeon people with XD
its just a $500 e-book
i like my n900
This thing is one of the most useless releases of the latter years. An expensive gadget with limited uses. I also loved the "netbooks are good for nothing" quote. If they are so bad, then how tens of millions of those were sold in 2009.
Open the platform, do something real.
The Apple motto: "Defective by design".
This. This is what is needed. Apple should hire this guy and actually make something decent first time. But wait... How then will Apple make even more money on the incremental upgrades on each model if it already has everything.
So nice and useless! )
Well, if I were Steve J, I'd give it a real good thought . Good one mate.
I didn't read through the whole thread but Fujitsu has had an iPAD since 2006.
EDIT: Since 2002!!
The Fujitsu's iPAD is a trademark... though Apple has iPad... But still if I would be at Fujitsu, I'd be quite mad about the name.
I smell a lawsuit, and i hope to god they win.
hah i hope apple loses the lawsuit too
Why the hell is there a Youtube icon on the screen, if the device doesn't support Flash?
1. I want it as a USB host. That would have been AWESOME.
2. I want linux on this thing.
This needs to be quoted.
I thought the wifi ones would be released in 60 days and the 3G ones in 90 days, that should be only 1 month after the wifi, so April. Anyway no contract, they said prepaid no contract, and at $30/month unlimited.
I have been wanting a color ereader for awhile now, and I know there are some other technlogies out there that are better for the screen. I will wait and see what becomes of those before deciding. It was funny of the iphone though, people said it was trash and not that good but it has taken competitors a long time to make a comparable device that works well. Hopefully the ereader market is differnet.
The most interesting other type out there for me is the Mirasol/Qualcomm display, although it is only 5.7".
Perhaps someone should inform Apple that this prank has already been done...
And yes, that was litterally the first thing I thought of when I saw this oversized iPhone.
I mean this thing with mac os or an 11" or less netbook more or less like the ones exist right now at a reasonable price. Macbook air is not 11" or less, the hardware is not like a netbook and has not a reasonable price.
Hmmm i can play yt vids on my 3gs so id assume the ipad could. :shadedshu
The Youtube app uses a MP4 interface, where you're actually streaming little MP4 movies instead of streaming flash.
You forgot something very important. Multi tasking. Even my ancient Pentium 233 MMX was capable of that, that not to mention that even a 386 is capable of doing that, LOL!
I rather wait for the Qualcomm Snapdragon processor to come around for smartphones than waste my money on the iPad's puny A4 processor. Good effort though, I can see this for eReaders and the elderly right now.
