I’ll be at Dallas Comic Con this weekend. Come say hi!
Oh, Steve. You had me at “we are not currently developing a tablet.”
Seems like the new Apple iPad would be fun to travel with. Can’t see much use for it around the house when it really isn’t much smaller than my laptop, but I haven’t laid hands on it yet (which is typically when an Apple product grabs hold of your soul and doesn’t let go). I imagine the UI is crazy fun to play with and developers are going to have a blast coming up with new ways to utilize it. The entry level price point of $499 is also quite tasty, considering the first iPod cost that much.
I can’t wait to see how they adapt this thing for kids and the classroom. My 2 yr old already loves iPhone games, and computers. She is more confused by mice and keyboards because she expects every device to be multitouch.
The area I’m MOST interested in is seeing if they open up the iBookstore or whatever to independent publishers. I’d love to put the HE Books in ePud format and sell them through Apple’s distribution-hole.
What did you think? Fun toy or tech-revolution on par with the iPod?
