Must say I'm a bit disappointed by the new Apple 'ipad'. It looks lik a giant iphone. I suppose the thing that has me questioning the devise is. 'Apple processor', Just a jazzed up ARM processor?, The other is the operating system, the same as the iphone?

What I would have liked to have seen was the osx operating system on the device. The iphone os with the ARM processor is just a way to lock in consumers into itunes; Now with the promise of books.

What I would have liked would have seen was osx, with additional keyboard. Plus intel processor. It would have been the ultimate portable computer. Otherwise specs look pretty good for the price. Especially considering that is 'Flash memory'

9.7 inch- (25cm-) multi-touch display
1 GHz Apple processor
16-64 GB of flash memory
0.5in- (1.25cm) thick
Weighs 1.5lbs (0.7kgs)
Wi-fi, bluetooth and 3G connectivity
Speaker, microphone
Accelerometer, compass

(The other thing, Job's looked like he has pretty bad Cachexia)
