So after all the hype, the fact is I was all-in even if Apple brought out a dancing monkey and told me it was the new iPad.
Okay, let’s review. It’s thinner, faster, comes in white, and, yes, it’s Verizon-capable. Some tech writers dig it. Some writers suspect the minor upgrades – which also includes two cameras – are only the beginning. And it’s the same price point! Other writers…you can’t please them.
There are definite pros to the upgrades and the fact that the prices didn’t change is a plus. (The price of the iPad 1.0 version actually dropped.) But as I mentioned earlier, it’s only the beginning. We might, might, might see yet another iPad in time for the holiday season.
Lastly, check out the amount of reporters who blogged about today’s event with play by play coverage. Steve Jobs had your attention today. He’s gonna have it for awhile.
