Re: Still too dear.
> I confess that when the iPad appeared my reaction was WTF would I want with a device without a keyboard ?
A lot of the Reg readership thought that. I guess they were trying to imagine a single 'killer app', rather than lots of quite handy uses. At the time of the iPad's release, I was confident that 'lots of quite handy uses' would win the day - even though my only tablet ( a Samsung Tab 10.1) is gathering dust somewhere. A have a diverse range of friends in different fields, and I've seen iPads used for all sorts of things. But heck, I even know someone who used XP Tablet Edition ( on a touchscreen laptop for car engine diagnostic software).
If only there was a Reg avatar system that reflected the accuracy of the commenter's predictions over the years! :)
