For all the tablet nay-sayers, Piper Jaffray's Gene Munster thinks the iPad (AAPL) has the potential to be a "breakout" product if given a year to enter the broader consumer market and with a price cut to the $300-400 range.

    Price has little to do with it. The real question is: what's its use? Everything the iPad can do, I can do better elsewhere. A lot of problems with the device - no flash, no cam, no additional storage capabilities.

    Exactly, it's only for Apple fanboys who, while sitting around watching Apple TV, put their iTouch/iPhone down to have a slightly better web-browsing experience with the iPad.

     

    Who's going to want this? It's the classic tablet quandary - laptops do everything it does better, albeit in a larger package. iPhone/Blackberries are truly portable/pocketable.

     

    While, beyond Apple's devotees who are blind to reality, where's the market?
