It could kill Amazon's Kindle. Jobs also talked about an iTunes version of a e-library where you can download e-books. If people embrace the iPad, this could mean the end for Kindle (which really never took off as Amazon had hoped).
It will revolutionize the publishing industry. Now newspapers and magazines can utilize a pay-for-reading type of revenue generator. For years, print has been losing so much money. Imagine comic books being downloaded straight to your iPad! The iPad could be their savior.
It will also continue to shape how we watch TV. Most of us Tivo or DVR shows these days, and many others are watching shows via iTunes as well. Imagine watching TV on your iPad. Anytime. Anywhere.
It will make AT&T happy. With new data plans ranging from $14.99 a month to $29.99 a month for the 3G-enabled iPad, this is another big money maker.
I think this is all so awesome! I love technology, and I believe this product is amazing. I heard that Apple is even working on a more robust version of the iPad for the near future...
It does all the iPad does, but it's extra-absorbant.
I wonder if it will fly.
Hopefully this product will be able to rise above its own name.
