Hey all,

I'm currently doing research about the general opinion of the iPad. What do you think about it?

It seems like not everyone is thrilled about the iPad. They say the iPad has been hyped too much by Apple and it's not nearly as revolutionary as they make us believe it to be.
On the other hand there people can't wait to get their hands on it.

What do you think about the iPad and it's features? I will collect some of the input and [url=http://www.iex.nl/forum/topic.asp?topic=1177075&forum=1490]write a nice article[/url] about it!
