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 ...

att rules 🤣

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.
