We have already discussed our hopes and dreams for the future of the iPad, and while we don't really feel that it's a homerun of a device in its current state, there's no doubt that the allure of Apple alone will help the company sell more than a few of these once then go on sale in under 2 months. The real question, however, is exactly how... Read more...

In our analysis of the iPad, we essentially came to the conclusion that it was a large iPod touch.
