It's just a big iPod Touch, thank goodness
Lots of criticism I've read about iPad come from cursory (at store) or no actual use of the device.
"doesn't even have a full OS"
"it's just a big iPod Touch"
Take your screen, desktop monitor or laptop
Put it on your lap
Make it wake from sleep
Turn on wifi
How long did that take?
The iPad does this in less than 10 seconds with multitouch deft.
Instant on, the web that is.
