Apple Announces iPad
Replying to: Am I wrong... by AndroidRules
Watch the Demo
1) What good is a MicroSD slot?
2) There's an adapter for regular SD cards and camera hookups. I think a full SD card slot would've been ideal for photographers on the go but the adapter is better than nothing.
3) The frameworks the iPod Touch / iPhone use are the same Cocoa frameworks OSX uses. They're based off of the iPhone/iTouch UI, but if you watch the demos a lot of new UI frameworks are introduced with the iPad, and just about every single application shown in the demo was WAY above your average iPhone app.
4) What do you mean like "Normal Applications?" They demoed Apple's office suite (Pages & Keynote) and even did photo masking in Pages!
5) Flash needs to die. I know it's good for games, but for video it's a battery and CPU hog that needs to be replaced by HTML 5 STAT.
The only thing confusing me is its lack of multitasking, which seems odd.
