Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

midget-sized tactile keyboards.

i like the iphone typepad in horizontal mode especially, i'm much faster on it that any other phone i had. if the ipad's is proportionally larger than the iphone's, or best expandable to measure, i don't really see a problem, especially if you can make it disappear when not in use. i see it more in nursing homes as a personal tv, sitting in a rack where it can be comfortably watched, takes up a lot less space than the customary little tvs like in hospitals everywhere now, and less of a writer thing, though the market for the more um, active user will be huge anyway..

the usb, yes dumb omission. whack in firewire and a slot flashcard reader too.

its success will depend a lot on its reliability. if it has a flakey side, that could kill it dead, as people expect a level of relative excellence and sturdiness to go with the apple prices. if it's a drop-it-once-it's-history toy, then....ppfffft.

cuz it's slotted for prime time, after its elder cousins' achievements, that's a high wire...
