Point to where I said this. I stated a fact: Apple apps can multitask, therefore it has multitasking capability.

and you're syaing that this thing will cost less than an iphone. Cool
Point to where I or anyone said that? The initial starting price is $499. There's nothing but fact there.

If you consider me to be a fanboi, I hate to see what you think of the people more rabid than I.

Doesn't mean they're wrong.

If what IJH is saying is true, it's better than no multitasking, but honestly...
What I am saying IS True. It's true now and has been for a long while.

"Thow shalt only use Mac software."
Again, not true. Plenty of apps available. Of course, multitasking is probably what you're referring to but nonetheless it's misleading.

Is a pretty big hit to the device. Then again, Mac people might think this is great since Mac software is the greatest in the universe ever.
Man, don't let your true fanboi shine!

They could have knocked it out of the park with this device and completely taken over the tablet market instead, its a larger version of an iTouch. BFD.
Actually, I thought the same thing. Until I read some articles and commentary from people who had hands on. Rick's post was pretty spot on with what I heard. You have to play with it to really have any say on it. It's screaming fast.

There really isn't a tablet market right now. There have been tablets but no one really has done anything worth while in the market. Best thing so far is Courier by MS but as always it's vaporware.

I think you underestimate the power of a large iPod Touch. It's not for me, at least right now. I'll wait for a couple revisions before buying. A) the software will mature B) Apple always increases specs and features without raising price and C) if you look at the iPod generations they got increasing features that made upgrading look good, I bet this follows suit.
