    Its going to be just as boring as last year's announcement. They made another tablet that nobody wants. The live coverage will be just you and the other zdnet bloggers arguing the merits of the tablet.

      @Loverock Davidson Which is why they've sold what, 15 million of them? You either enjoy trolling or you live in a fantasy world.

        Or I realize that tablets are not the way to go and if it didn't have an Apple logo on it no one would be buying it. Its just a branding thats selling, that is all.

        Everyone needs to stop responding to @Loverock Davidson's posts. Everyone knows he is a troll but the back and forth replies just fill up this blog and waste everyone's time. If we stop acknowledging his posts maybe he will eventually go back to his hole and die quietly.

      tablet no one wants??? 15 million sold in 1 year. Several people holding off for ipad 2 that dont have ipad (myself included). any idea how many people have been speculating about the device? A lot of people not interested in the device? I'm going to take a wild stab in the dark and say you weren't a business major.

      I don't mind the comment about it being boring, if your not interested then yeah it would be boring to you and thats your opinion and I don't mind people sharing their opinion (hell I am still ticked over the "big" Beatles on Itunes announcement). But the rest of what you said which you state as fact and not in an opinionated form it just idiotic and completely false. Would so many manufacturers the world over be trying to make tablets if nobody wanted them? Plus the fact tablets have been around for many years, Apple finally got it right with the ipad (granted I wish it had DVD slot but thats me).
      So keep sharing your opinions but keep the lies to yourself. For all we know you work for apple competitors trying to steal the limelight away, but then for all you know I work for apple (I don't, but it could have been true).

        You do realize that you can import DVDs through iTunes and transfer them to the iPad? The iPad would not have the great battery life, if Apple stuck things like a DVD drive in it. So it was a design compromise. I put a few movies on my iPod Touch, while it is not optimal for watching a movie on, in a pinch (like waiting at the registry) it?s not a bad way to distract yourself.

        Tablets are not selling as well as people thought. 15 million? Thats about the same as Apple users, so only Apple people bought them. I have no idea why the others are making tablets, I can only guess its to try to grab some money from that 15 million before the fad goes away. Its not the smartest business move.

      @Loverock Davidson "Another tablet that nobody wants"?? What? Are you serious? Look at how many iPads have sold in the past year. Do you even live on planet Earth!

      @Loverock Davidson You don't think iPad is a tablet that can cure you from sickness don't you ? That called MEDICINE !!! Some medicine have apple logo, but that's mean it's have apple flavor.

        I wish, getting paid big bucks, partying every night, alcohol... say what you will but he's living the good life.

        @ loverock davidson: I really try to stay away from the bickering and listen to what others have to say. With that in mind, if you think that partying every night, alcohol, drugs, failed marriages, having your kids taken away, rehab, more rehab, etc., is the "good life", you just lost ALL of your credibility with any rational people.

      @Loverock Davidson I am posting this solely to assist Loverock Davidson in pushing all intelligent commentary off the first page of user comments. Without his trolls engendering dozens of replies, other stuff might get read, and we can't have that.

      I have an iPad. I use it daily. I know lots of people that do. It has nothing to do with an Apple logo on it and everything to do with being a great device. Very useful and handy. My MacBook rarely gets used anymore now that I have the iPad.

      And it looks like I was right. That seems to happen to me quite often.

      Around 80% of Fortune 100 companies have deployed iPads for their employees.

      Apple have sold almost 15 million iPads in just nine months. No-one has ever had a product get off to such fast start.

      In that time, over 100 million books downloaded from iBooks. Apple have just added Random House with 17,000 books. There are now over 2,500 publishers in the iBookstore.

      People have created 200 million iTunes Store accounts.

      Over 65,000 iPad apps are now available.

      These are what we grown ups call FACTS.

      Some people want to let you off by calling you a troll. I've come to the conclusion that you're either really stupid or genuinely retarded, in either case you deserve our sympathy.
