“Wow. So Apple has unveiled its iPad, an iPod touch like tablet computer that, so far at least, doesn’t seem impressive at all,” Paul Thurrott writes for Supersite for Windows. “And what’s with the huge bezel? It’s actually … can I say this about an Apple product? … ugly.”
MacDailyNews Take: “The iPad’s bezel is its handle. It’s where your fingers grip the device without covering the content on the screen, no matter which way you’re holding it. Give Apple some credit; they’re not Microsoft, they think things through.” – SteveJack, MacDailyNews, January 27, 2010
Thurrott continues, “The thing I don’t get here is… Nothing new. This has all been done before elsewhere. I’m astonished this isn’t nicer looking or more interesting… OK, this has to be a joke… It’s a joke. It’s gotta be. Right? …A 1 GHz Apple A4 chip (What the???)”
MacDailyNews Take: Oh, trust us, it’s all being iCal’ed for future use.
Thurrott continues, “This stuff is just boring. If Apple wanted this to be a game machine, they should have built hardware controls into that huge bezel.. Overall, this is a letdown. I’d be surprised to see anyone try to claim otherwise.”
