I'll admit that I definitely want an iPad. I've wanted one before they were even out. I always thought a big iTouch would be excellent for reading ebooks and comics on.
However, all of these supposed "pundits" really are talking a lot of smack about it. It's either a complete failure whose collapse will take Apple with it, or it's the second coming of the User Interface. Here to forgive us our sins of horrible UX design.
It's amazing to me how dead set these moro-- er -- people are on their opinions (on both sides) about a product that virtually nobody has used yet.
