Is anyone getting this? I wish they made something like this for comic books but the resolution and size still are off.

I had not even heard of it until Staci showed it to me last night and I thought it was pretty bad ass... until I started reading about it today on Apples site while on a conf call.

Now I'm not so wild about getting one until later down the road. Its basically just a bigger iPhone without the phone or camera functions. I already have an iPhone that does everything that does and if I need to go through the hassles of carrying something getting into that size factor, for another couple hundred I could buy a used MacAir, or a couple hundred less for a netbook and have a full functioning laptop.

But I know I'd like one down the road for around the house, thus the preemptive strike on Martins that I'm sure he will be getting.

I think of it as a big ipod touch. But that size screen combined with the touch screen would be enough for me to make a carputer out of one. You can use your iphone to share internet access it with it. I'll wait until it's jailbroken first before buying though

That is pretty much my exact thoughts on it.

I haven't bought one, but checked out a friends since i thought it might make a good carputer once it has usb ports and is jailbroken. I don't think the screen works as well in sunlight as my iphone

I had exactly the same thought, to use it in my car as GPS and computer, and radio. The new one will come up in one month with 3D GPS in it. It would also make sense to have camera, so you can use Skype on it.

Haha

Not yet. As Dmitry says it needs a camera to be useful to me at home (video phone). The future looks good but I'm probably a few revs out. Got no time to play with it anyway.

I agree, it's lacking a lot of important bells and whistles.

Silly me. I guess I need to call dibs on Martin's replacement (when it gets replaced). When you order that on Martin, the only important parameters are usb ports and a camera - all other configurations/options should be fine for me. Thanks in advance

I might as well put the lick in for your MacBook Air 11" model.

LOL. I must admit the new 11" air looks awfully tempting

Tell me about it.. super thin, lightweight, the size of a netbook. And reading about that BootCamp app, I can run Windows 7 from boot up, not in an VM.

I'll be honest, I really have no need for another laptop or anything that runs OSX, but still, its pretty nice looking.
