    half the size of an iPhone? Other than diehards, only an idiot would buy it then.

    "will supposedly be half the size of the iPhone"

    actually the article says "one and a half times the size of the iPhone"

    My guess is that like other Apple products, it will be overpriced....I'm guessing it'll sell for $1500...with an initial eBay price of $5000. That's a big no thanks from me.

    This is basically a PDA with a better OS. Kinda sad that they aren't trying to develop a real tablet for students. I frequently have Apple fanbois ogling my tablet...you think Apple would be all over any kind of attention grabbing device.

    Calling it a tablet is a bit excessive. From the description, it's a PDA.

    Just came across this on gizmodo: An Apple touch tablet with picture. (Relax, it's just a mock up )

    Agreed that it's a PDA, in fact the AppleInsider article even states that it's a possible return of the Apple Newton, even straight from the mouth of Steve Jobs:

    Will be interesting to see if it isn't a PDA and more of a UMPC. :)

    Well, I'm not jumping yet until I see what OSX can do with ink... got a little tired of Apple's design innovation already, not that it doesn't look nice but it's going to need more than looks to pull me. There aren't even any Mac addons for tablets, after all - will there be a MaxiVista or Extended Desktop addon for OSX/Leopard?

    Yup, me and my T4210 get ogled quite often too, and the wide viewing angle of the XGA screen doesn't help things...
