More of the much-debated details of Apple's (AAPL) iPad: ten hours of battery life in a 1.5-pound device with a 9.7-inch display; a new online bookstore using the open ePub format, partnered with five publishers to start; Wi-Fi and 3G through AT&T (T) - but on cancel-anytime plans, and the device is unlocked. Oh, and shipping in 60 days starting at $499. AAPL now +0.7%.

    What can this thing do that my $500 Windows laptop can't? OK.. so my laptop weighs about 7 pounds, but being a guy I don't have a purse to carry the iPad around (so where will it go, my pocket???), nor do I care that it has a NY Times "app" when I can read articles in my "app" called a web browser. I'll tell you what.. if I can edit Word and Excel documents typing 60 wpm on the iPad, you've got a sale.

    I have not seen this much hype since the Newton. The estimate of 5 million units sold in a year from now is unrealistic. At best this adds .01 per share this year.

    Wow, sure are a bunch of myopic know-it-alls posting their little jabs here.


    Hmm, let's I trust the vision of a man who founded and leads one of the world's most successful tech companies, or some anonymous naysayers on the internet? Gee, that's a tough one.
