iPad thoughts...

Of course, the first one is:


Looks cool and does most everything I want in a midrange product at a good price point.

This could be the Kindle killer and makes the Nook irrelevant.

Things that pundits have already pointed out:

No multitasking. All demos were of single tasks.
Existing apps look odd. Either lost on the screen or doubling the pixels makes text odd.

Things I'm wondering about:

What's it like to type on the screen?
It has bluetooth, does it support wireless keyboards

Can you access eternal devices. ie: external hard drives or card readers.

Built in web cam? They seem to be a standard feature on most new laptops and netbooks.

Email & calendaring? Built in or are they accessing iMac, Google or other services

Has iPhoto, but only showed displaying photos, does it have editing/managing capability.

Can it access storage on the net? Either local (network/media drives) or in the "cloud"?
