Is the iPad really worth $500? Watching Steve Jobs unveil the details of his company's new game-changing tablet yesterday, I admit I'm not so sure.
My first impression of the device was more in line with those who thought it was an extra large iPhone. Clocking in 1.5 pounds and a half-inch thin, the 9.7 inch screen makes it roughly the size of a small stack of paper. As more information emerged about gaming on the iPad and iLife compatibility, I was intrigued, but not convinced. Then again, I also own a laptop, a netbook, a smartphone, and an iPod Touch - I can fit a mobile studio inside my messenger bag.
