So, let's see...

...no physical keyboard.

Can't multitask.

No support for Flash.

Can't make a call with it.

I'm sorry, is thing supposed to be desirable?

Not sure I understand the hype??

So you're paying 600, 700 or 800 dollars for a somewhat dumbed down version of a notebook computer. Yeah, the $30/month is nice, but that's a carrier decision. And you're subsidizing it with the upfront cost. So... why would I buy this?
they are not subsidizing the upfront price
...
Well it starts at $500.00 , what you're getting is a device that's "instant-on" and is likely faster on the web than anything in the price range, with 10 hours of battery life, and can handle HD video.


You can buy a $300.00 netbook that technical...

Oversized Ipod???

So basically this is just an Ipod touch with a 9.7 inch screen with a few extra perks? Why couldnt apple have given my ipod touch the ability to have a $30 unlimited data plan first before developing the Ipad? 👿

No Seriously?

Let me get this straight. I can get UNLIMITED DATA on this thing for $29.99, but AT&T charges $59.99 for 5GB of data with an air card or net book with embedded modem? I...DO...NOT...UNDERSTAND. Can someone explain it to me?
I think it means Apple is reselling the data to you from at&t like a MVNO kind of. Kindle does this with wispernet but it's part of the device cost.
...
yes. if you are paying the prices they are at now you are being charged a huge markup

the wireless companies are making money hand over fist.

That is a GREAT deal for some people.

That is really really nice.

I am not even close to a fan boy... I was beyond happy to get RID of my I phone and go to an android.

But this Rocks.

Good hardware price considering apples build quality and this being a premium device.

Unbeatable wireless data deal.....

This is a win-win-win.

I love the bar that has been set here.

Now i want to see someone launch a comparable Android Device , with a Comparable DATA rate on a network that actually Works in my area.
Quality? Ask all those Mac users with yellow screens about the "quality" products Apple makes...

$30.00 no-contract prepaid unlimited data!???

Are you effing serious!?
I am liking the direction of this. Prepaid means NO OVERAGES! You just run out of the ability to use data, at least that is what I hope. I'd rather have to reload when I used up 250MB than be allowed to keep using it and get a $2500 bill for watching ...

Say Again...

Well this is certainly underwhelming. This is what all the hype was about? 🙄
Another industry shattering device. This makes me want to go buy a segway, run around town with my iPad trying to chase an AT&T 3G signal.

iPass on this.
