    120,000 iPads already sold....in just one day

    Apple has already made $75 million in the first day of Pre-order sales.
    WTF? Doesn't anybody know how bad the product is?
    There is still 3 weeks until it's released.

    Do we really want to throw around labels?

    As the song by Public Enemy goes, Dont Believe The Hype

    DK,thought you would have snapped one of these up as its brilliant for you tube and wiki apparently

    i brought 6

    If it's a good product it will float.

    If it's a bad product it will sink.

    Why anybody really cares one way or the other is beyond me.

    im certain i saw a chinese man using one on the train last week

    Nah, that was an iPod touch, it probably just looked big in such tiny hands.

    If you want it, here it is, come and get it
    Make your mind up fast
    If you want it anytime, I can give it
    But you better hurry 'cause it may not last

    Did I hear you say that there must be a catch
    Will you walk away from a fool and his money
    If you want it here it is, come and get it
    But you better hurry 'cause it's going fast

    LOL, no but serious, im certain it was one, it was about A4 size and looked like all the pictures of the ipad.

    How bad the product is? Dont you need to be open minded enough to actually use one before making that judgement? It may be useless,it may be a "big iphone" and it may be quite good-nobody knows,because nobody has one.

    I love the argument 'it's just a big iPod Touch'....so why buy a 21" monitor? 'It's just a big 15" monitor'

    I'm looking forward to trying one. If I TRY it, and like it, I will buy one. If I don't like it, I will not buy one. What I won't do is be an apple hater and cut my nose of to spite my face. Interesting that people can decide on something by renders and seeing an old guy use one on a stage for ten minutes.

    'It's cool to hate Apple'

    In the words of the immortal BG1, 'I might go in and bring one'

    this

    Hopefully the WiFi & 3G will be available on launch day as I will definitely be buying one....like all other Apple products it will hold its value so no massive loss if I dont like and have to sell

    I wonder if these tablets will cure the hunger of the Apple fans who buy anything hyped ?

    I've got an internet tablet, and it's 4 yrs old . .

    Well said,Flynn jack.
    Badfinger got it right 40 years ago,and it covers most products,services,etc.......even today.
    Just another product for the "I got one" brigade to large off about.

    Nah Apple logo makes it a success even though it's terrible.



    Apple TV?

    I'm thinking XBMC remote with full streaming films/TV from Revo to Tablet. Then stick it in the kitchen for the missus to watch cookery videos to try and get her standard up a bit. Sat nav, etc in the car and then at work for emails/web browsing.

    Hopefully, if it's rubbish it will still bring a new breed of ultra thin touchscreen pads

    Hubby wanted to pre-order, I said no mwahaha, seriously though, when it launches if it's good and he likes it and it's useful to him, I said I'll get him one.

    As it stands with a pc's/netbook/laptop's/bb/iphone in the house I am failing to see the need, he travles a bit though, I am sure we will see, there have been tablets around for years, so we will see if it's just a fad or not.

    Oh yeah he is also in the *I have got one of those brigade* he is a geek with gadgets.

    HP are releasing a nice one

    I don't have a clue what it does or how to use it though.

    why be gay!

    I think this is worth a look. If I was in the market for an iPad thingy I'd want one that closes to protect the screen and take up less space. I don't hate apple because it's cool to do so but because I've always hated them and the gurning beardy overweight assistants that work in the stores. The blokes are just as bad.

    WTF is the point?


    I bet half the members of the site buy one though for posing value, same peeps that have iPhone etc

    $75m profit, on selling 120,000 units?

    That's $625 profit per unit :thinking:

    Looks great, but then mockups always do

    Hopefully it will be an actual product by the end of the year

    All iphone users can get one free, just hold it closer to your face.....

    I'm kinda in agreement that they are not that good - however, the idea of a simple web viewer using the same iphone interface, only with more screen space does kinda appeal.

    However, i wouldn't buy one. Maybe you FO.LK could give me some help and advice?

    +1, and smartphones that arent the size of a tv. The ipad is just a big iphone, trying to be a netbook, but with many failures. It has no HDMI, no multi-tasking, only apple apps support it, it is way too big for what it actually gives you.

    What does an ipad actually offer that you don't already have, or could get cheaper ?
