    That looks good to me, I wonder how long before they actually have something.
    If they come out with that in the next couple of years I'll sell my iPad and buy one.

    I love my iPad but I hate the way they force you to run every thing through iTunes and use Apple apps.
    And I don't really get a lot of the interface, it doesn't seem logical to me.

    I also really like the idea of the cover Keypad!

    It takes me for ever to type on the little keypad on the screen one key at a time.

    Now put in an i3 processor 120 Gigs of storage, and a 3D video processor and I'll be ready to buy.

    IPad does't even put in a USB port, so you can hook up to other hardware plug in a Memory Sticks and transfer data to it etc.

    I'd love to be able to still use a mouse with it for some applications too.
    If it has a USB port maybe it could be possible to plug in a wireless mouse.

    But I do want the quality display that I get with the iPad it's fantastic.
