Now it has come out that it won't even support tethering... no even with an iPhone.  You know, there are a lot of us talking about the iTampax, and they say any publicity is good publicity... I don't think so. Every day there is a new piece of news about what Apple decided the thing can't/won'd do.  WTF?  Nice f*cking model... honk honk.

That is wayyyyy to much money for basically a large screen iPod touch. Watch the prices drop a bunch within a few months. Sure the Apple Fanbois will buy them on day one but then?.......

To be fair though, anyone stupid enough to even CONSIDER buying this technically should be departed from their money.

And ladies!  That time of the month got you down?  Well turn those frowns upside down as our "magical" product doubles as a necessary "get-you-through-the-day" boost!

Come, buy your heavenly, magical iPad today!

WTF is this thing for? It's too big to carry in your pocket and too limited to replace your laptop.

The only thing I can imagine using it for would be sitting on my couch browsing the web...if I was feeling too lazy to open the lid of my netbook. Oh, wait, it doesn't do flash. Never mind.

 I paid 499.99 for this puppy. I can upgrade it. Max 8 gigs DDR 2, any type of 2.5 inch HDD I want, plus endless tweaking as I need why? What? Want me to buy a POS 500 buck Lappy? Those are junk.

 

 

CLICK.

 Guess what can multi task, has wi-fi, internet anywhere (courtesy of my cell phone), a 12inch screen, 250 gig hard drive, 2 gigs of ram, Nvidia Ion, dual core multi tasking and expandability options?

My Asus 1201n netbook.

And I only paid the base line price of 500 bucks :)

take that Jobsy.

What really kills this device is that it can't multi task. Even my fucking phone can multi task perhaps because it's not an apple Iphone. It's an Android phone. 

My phone I can have 3 or 4 programs running at the same time. Ipad is soooo dumb it can barely handle 1 and 2 not at all.

As a computing device it's utterly useless. Look you can't even run an office suite on it because that demands multi talking. This thing is stupid. And what about expandability? Nope you can't expand it at all by adding memory cards so forget about it. What you see is what you get.

Your battery dies and you want to replace it or carry multiple batteries for long flights to europe and back for get about it.

So really just how it this thing awesome? I would rather purchase an Android powered mini tablet when they come out or just buy the best netbook I can get and call it a day.

In fact the cheapest netbooks are far more expandable and can multi task from the git go. Just give me that convertible netbook/tablet with touch screen and I'll use it instead of the Ipad.

Apple already has some neato devices namely the Iphone, Ipod and Touch. Ipad really is a terrible idea that shouldn't have gone past the idea pitch stage.

Can MaximumPC do us all a favor and not publish anything about apple unless it says they are convicted of a crime or going bankrupt?

Brilliantly said dear sir. I Believe that after a 2nd the new rule should be noted as having been seconded and put to a vote by the entirety of the union membership that is in good standing and then the rule can be ratified on the conclusion of a successful election.

So now we need a vote of everyone at MaximumPC including us the consumers.

I'll second that one.

For the love of any god, every tech savvy person in their right mind knows that paying 800 dollars for a giant gimmicky iphone with the same max storage as the iPod touch is getting RIPPED THE F*** OFF. I feel bad for anyone who buys it.

I'm so sick of hearing about this stupid piece of crap.

My only question to the iPad buyers is, "How's that USB/user-replaceable battery/Adobe Flash compatibility thingy going for you?"

Darn Just missed april fool's by a few days.

April 1st would be the ultimate release date for new products,  any problems could automatically be attributed to April fools.

The only thing that will be 'magical' is if someone who isn't part of Apples brainwashed groupie base actually tosses down 6 benjimans for one of these.

avatar

Energata

Yep. Another product for the holier-than-thou of Apple's brainwashed user base. I can just hear Apple yelling...." We'll continue stealing from the open source community and wrapping it in a nice neat little package! It's worked for us all along! Here you go hippies!!!"
