    Meh.... wake me up when...

    RIM puts out a Storm-type 4G phone with one of those flip/slide-out keyboards that's not out of spec at launch and I may get excited. Or not.

    Where's the IT angle?

    Seriously, this article is on par with "where can I get the latest Tickle Me Elmo doll for Christmas"... Lord of the Rings be damned... they have so many Precious' new shiney's out there Sauron would have won already....The One App Store binds them forever.... oooh scarey lol.

    That 5pm release time, by the way, will be the same in each time zone.

    Does this mean that fanbois in the Antipodes will be able to get their hands on them ~12 hours ahead of the yanks?

    Didn't think so.

    The first step..

    In curing yourself is admitting that you're a fanboi, now how's that Mini working out for ya Rick?

    I'd be interested to see how it all works out though, the iPad doesn't seem to be as massive a hit as the iPhone, will renta queue be out in force?

    You guys have it wrong.

    The article has a clear IT angle, all the IT press will be covering the iPad 2 launch.

    The article is factual, well researched and well written. It's a proper piece of journalism.

    You guys are too used to being spoon fed re-hashed press releases from sponsors that you don't recognize a proper journalistic item.

      Laying on the couch browsing or watching vids, or maybe a spot of Plants vs Zombies... really is a lot nicer and comfortable than using a Laptop (I own a MacBook Pro and considering selling it), when I need to do anything that requires a proper computer I use my Desktop anyway.

      It'll never replace a proper computer, it's just the internet in hardware form with a few games and some very minimal apps.

      For the idiots queuing outside the Apple shops, get a life. I hate going anywhere near those stores, those blue shirted tits patronise the hell out of you. Plus stores like Lewis's offer an extra years warranty so why bother?
