Having since watched the entire Keynote properly -- much better than unreliable blog feeds -- I've completely changed my mind. I want one!

A lot of the criticism is along the lines of "it isn't a very good netbook". Missing the point that it's not supposed to be a netbook.

Most significant drawbacks highlighted so far are lack of multi-tasking and no support for Flash content. Personally, I can live without the Flash content. A USB port would have been nice; you only get one with the dock, I think. Some of us still like typing on a real keyboard!

It has a keyboard, pops up automatically. To connect to an *external* keyboard you have to place the iPad in a keyboard dock.

I believe it will also work with Bluetooth wireless keyboards. Apple make a pretty one.

Problems with the recent F'wise uploads as you may have seen elsewhere but IZ 226 is uploaded now. If you see problems please tell us.

Also Books overtake games as most numerous iPhone apps so how do we get to be an iPhone app?

Just received an e mail from Stonewash DD&AG about their magazine iPhone App but they want £1900 upfront and £750 per issue (it might just be 'or') which is rather steep for the E circulation of magazines like TTA's. It answers my question above though.

Quote:
We have developed an application for magazines to appear on the iPhone in the most usable and reader friendly format. Thanks to a carefully constructed architecture, your magazine can be made available to users for free as a promotional tool, or for a fee so that you can earn from a huge and untapped market of potential new readers.

We have developed what we believe is the best platform available, this means you don't need to spend valuable time and budget on creating your own. We'll set up a magazine newsstand in the iTunes Store for you; our fees to launch your title on the iPhone are as follows:

• One-time setup fee: £1900
• Per-issue fee: £750

It looks like a lot of fun, though it's the same price as the iPad itself... The additional e-ink screen makes it more practical for long-form reading than the iPad.

But I think I'd rather have the iPad for web browsing and short periods of reading, and the Sony or Kindle for long periods of reading.
