SEE! I told you you were old!

Not exactly a dumb terminal (since they will have significant local storage and processing power)... but getting closer to that model than the current one for sure.

I see it more of a hybrid model... sort of like what the Atrix is but actually good. Who knows at this point.. I am just talking about capacity.

Nope, that's why I have a laptop that work provides and a desktop at home. The tablet is "fun", but there's also utility due to it's mobility. In addition, my kids are already spending time with a number of "learning" apps, which is a positive. Does it cost too much? Well, I guess that's a matter of opinion.

But in all seriousness, Bob Dole is right. Storage ON the device is irrelevant, really. I stream all my movies and music to the device, keep my documents on the cloud (google docs mostly), and use Goodreader for all my other file needs.

Hell, if you want, you can play WoW on an iPad, and it works reasonably well.
My mom's getting one as a belated Christmas present, and she's having a hard time understanding why the 16Gb model is fine for her needs.

No, FaceTime does not use up storage, nor does streaming video.

Who the f uses a ROM drive anymore.

Might as well complain it doesn't take 5.25" as well.

Apple has considerable economies of scale in the market, and will so for the foreseeable future. Not sure how phAndroid manufacturers undercut the iPad, except by taking miniscule profit margins or selling them at a loss.

HAHAHAHA... yes Apple has economies of scale in a market where NO ONE else was using touch screens, their ARM chip, etc etc... when you have 30 manufacturers using Nvidia Tegra 3 chips, XXX brand touch screens, etc etc the prices drop across the board.

That is a ridiculously short sighted argument that I have seen bandied about by writers for financial trades who obviously don't understand the industry.

Yes, it would be a valid point if each manufacturer made a proprietary device like the iPad.. but they won't be.. they will all be sharing the same components .. giving them a huge advantage once enough of them get in the game. (this fall)

All of the upcoming phAndroid tablets are using the same hardware. Really??

no, but don't be obtuse. Just like all PCs don't use the same hardware.. yet they share enough to drive the prices down to where Macs had to start using PC hardware to keep up...

They will likely share 2 MAYBE 3 different chips, mostly the same memory and with touchscreens scale is a different issue that won't apply. Again, don't be purposely obtuse for the sake of the debate.

The Apple has "economy of scale" argument is one that people in the industry laugh at. It would take ONE serious Chinese manufacturer to blow that up. Go back a few pages and read the article I posted by Dvorak. He's is one of the few people quoted who has the chops in the industry(25 years as a tech columnist) and whose opinion should be trusted.
