      Yay, Cincinnati....

      Awesome that he surfed the web during the demo and had a flash plugin icon. That is like windows showing off their new stuff and getting a BSOD.

      There is a USB port.
      There better be an SD slot though.

      Amazon already tried this, and it was pretty much a rousing failure.
      I imagine that in a year (maybe less) there will be a Kindle C that expands it's Internet access and is in color.

      Where? AFAIK, there's not--and there's no mention of one anywhere.

      i gotta say it a little underwhelming
      the bezel sucks
      and its really just an oversized ipod touch/iPhone.....
      from the fact that steve was "apparently saying... this is his most important thing yet" I dont see how ... I was really hoping to find something that I would want to buy but I dont think this competes with my macbookpro or my iphone

      I'm not seeing any reason to get this over a Netbook or any cheaper Windows/Droid powered tablet. AppleTV x2.

      I dont understand how this fits in to the marketplace. Why would someone need this who has a laptop and a smartphone? Its not as portable as a smartphone and cant execute as many functions as a laptop. So where is its value?

      16GB version without 3G $499
      Jason Chen:
      And the 3G models cost an extra $130, so $629, $729 and $829 for the 3G-capable models.
      Then there’s 32GB for $599 and 64GB for $699. These are for the Wi-Fi only version.

      Im an apple fanatic and I just dont see how this is better then an iphone on the bus or train... or better then a laptop in starbucks
      also the name iPad sounds like something in a dispenser in the girls washroom at the apple store.... should have been called the Slate

      There is no USB port, nor SD slot.
      There is the Apple proprietary connector that terminates in USB to your computer. And the charging/docking plug at the bottom.

      I think for us iPhone users it would be cool if we could tether it to our phones instead of buying the 3G version.... and what is this micro 3G card?..... sounds like a way to keep us from putting our iphone sims in the tablet

      You're right but syncing to a PC is what most people would use a USB for anyway.
      Though the lack of an SD slot is a huge minus for me.

      Hmm, I'll wait until there is an Atom 330 tablet with Ion2 and 160gb for around the same price (somewhere between $499 and $829)...
      Actually I probably won't buy either.

      The point is to make people convert, and not expand the number of their devices. So, instead of getting a new laptop, one may consider this. Keep your iPhone for even more mobility. It makes plenty of sense.

      I dont think anyone is going to convert from anything to an iPad...... I think the best chance this device has is to erode at the kindle... it isnt going to erode iphone or macbook sales

      Cooling ports (maybe passive) is my guess.
