15 minutes into the release video, so far it's just an ipod/iphone but larger. Guess we'll see.
Just stopped watching the vid because quicktime can't handle being paused, minimized, restored and played again. That's the kind of quality I want in a company that specializes in Media :rollseyes:

+1 unfortunately. All the hipsters driving Cubes and wearing fadoras will run out and buy on opening day give it high praises because they don't want to look dumb for buying it, normal people will buy and realize it's junk, then Gen 2 will come out, function better but still be nothing more than an oversized iPod touch.

This isn't a tablet. It's the bastard love child of an iPod Touch and an old persons TV remote.

Mostly, Steve eye's are going bad and he doesn't like watching video on a 3 inch screen...

If it will only run iPhone/iTouch style apps, it's a big loser. Furthermore, if I have to pay $99 for a dev kit in order to make my own app, it's an even bigger loser. At a minimum, make it so I can install an existing Mac/OS X application onto it - that would rock.
