    Apple unveils $499 iPad tablet



    After months of speculation, Apple has finally lifted the veil on the iPad, its long-rumored tablet computer. The device will be available in late March starting at $499 for the 16GB version.

    downside:no camera, no multitasking, no adobe flash, 64gb is the largest, no ichat.

    I just don't get this...

    Not only has Apple cannibalized its Macbook Air sales (that product will be gone in less than a year) but it has basically created a bigger iphone without the calling capabilities.

    I just don't see who this product will appeal to (other than Apple fanboys). I can't imagine someone buying a ebook reader for $499 base model.

    it cant even be pitched as a true competitive Ebook Reader, Compare the selection of EBooks available from Itunes compared to Barnes and Noble.
    For that you go with the Nook.

    What this does is it opens the door for similar machines to be created. I expect the 2nd and 3rd generation IPADS to have Cameras, multitasking, USB Support etc....

    I wonder how many people will be carrying this, sit down and it cracks the screen. This is of course after you buy the $100 carrying case.
