  1. I am looking forward for iPad to hit UK market. I will like to see people around me using first before I buy my owner, I wan to know which is he best and that will suite my purpose.

  4. From the day Steve Jobs introduced the iPad in a keynote address, I knew this device is going to be a hit. If you are going to compare its price from a notebook, for example, you might think twice about getting it. However, the way this was sold by good old Steve, I don’t think price is going to matter. He’s so good people are going to buy their products no matter how expensive they are.

  5. It’s funny to read back posts about the ipad.
    The prices started so high.
    Apple probably planned exactly at what price to start then when to go down a bit and then launch the Ipad 2 at “this” exact date for this price.
    Leaving the camera out of the ipad so they can add it in the Ipad 2, giving it “more value”.
