No, Apple says it will work with "almost all" of the apps for the iphone/ipod touch.

Yeah, my guess is they are killing Stanza, the app that sees the most use on my iPhone.

I'll pick one up as it'll do what I need. It's perfect for meeting clients(I'm a wedding photographer). Show them a slideshow on it. Draft up there contract then email them a copy. Then when I travel it's easier than carrying a laptop and will do what I need it. It's also a little more than a normal netbook which is fine by me.

If it could run something like Powerpoint, I might like it. [Hook to the projecter via a dock, I assume?] I've looked into getting a netbook for travelling, but a tablet is nice for scribbling on when giving a presentation...

Actually, I wonder if there is an iPhone app for that? Giving a slideshow direct from my phone would be even better!

They are looking at releasing individual iWork apps on it so you could "powerpoint" with the device.

They demonstrated Keynote on the iPad, which is Apple's version of Powerpoint. According to the presentation yesterday, they are going to sell it, Numbers (think Excel) and whatever their equivalent of Word is, for $9.99 each.

I don't have a purpose for a large iPod touch so it is not in my future.

This seemed like the easiest thing for them to do that would bring the most attention. This is far from revolutionary and it actually sounds very limiting in what you can do. It basically sounds like a big iPod with 3G if you want. woop-di-friking-do.

The other thing is I don't like paying for apps, for them to take a open source operating system, make tweaks and sell it is not alright with me.

Now that would save me lugging my laptop to meetings.

Annoying that it will need to be jailbroken to be fully functional. Doubt I will get it. But we shall see.

I want a full functioning computer with a full version of OSX in a tablet like that and then I'd be all over it. I have an iPhone. Why would I want something is just a little bigger? I might as well get a Linux tablet for half the cost.
