It's a oversized iPhone crossed with a Mac then?

If it's cheap I could see it as an e-book reader as it's probably meant, but as with anything from Apple it will cost a small fortune. It doesn't stop people from lining up to buy one though. Any info on the pricing/specs?

Meh.

Though to live up to the hype, it'd have to give out blowjobs and candy.

I like it if its not incredibly expensive and runs a full-blown PC OS. Neither of which is looking to be the case :(

It does look a bit awkward though. Like a giant iPhone prop.

And remember - unlike the overhyped Camaro, it wasn't like the manufacturer was doing the hyping. In fact, Apple said nothing whatsoever about it.

Because you know all the rabid fanboys will totally be like this.

You can browse the web with it.
Wow! Welcome to, um... 1992?

I'm pretty sure that they helped encourage things by leaking info.

i don't get the point of this, some say it's easier and more fun without a keyboard, but without any keyboard there is nothing to protect the screen when carrying and if you press a button on a keyboard, that button is pressed not the one next to it nor the one in the oppsite side of the keyboard (as you can see i don't have a pleasant experience with touch screen

Yeah, it's a giant iPhone. Kind of cool, I guess, but more of a toy than a tool. When they showed the gap between iPod and Macbook I was hoping it would be closer to MacBook.
