Now that its over and no more surprises I'm disappointed. I'm sure it will be a hit and they'll sell a bunch but as a tech device its disappointing. Probably because I was following all the patent filings and was hoping for a new type of way of interaction.
The iphone software when it came out was huge revolution, it lacked many features but the overall packaging was perfect. Since then the OS has been evolving slowly to catch up to the features it was missing. The two biggest missing features now are multitasking and better home screen/ notifications in general. I was hoping the tablet would be the place they would implement these. The iphone its understandable because of battery life and such but for a "netbook killer" its insane not to have it. Lets say your making a presentation and need to research, you have to close the presentation, open up safari. Copy what you need or memorize it, close safari then pop back into presentations and paste so you have it available to look at or go from memory. Its absurd. All this available for the same price as decently powerful ULV.
Also no video camera, a ichat camera on the front would of been perfect for a device like this.
I guess I had high expectations of this being able to replace netbooks but in the end its just a large ipod with an ebook reader. Hopefully like the iphone the OS will evolve so it can one day replace my laptop for class. The HP Slate looks a lot more appealing now.
Only interesting part was the $15 for 250mb, I would get a data plan for my iphone if that came out. I'm done with my rant, hopefully something was missing from the announcement that we'll find out leading to the release.
