Steve Jobs with the "iPad"

Keyboard on the iPad

“He’s scrolling through text, and when he taps on text, the keyboard pops up. If he wants to focus on typing, he turns the thing horizontal.”- Jason Chen discussing iWork

Here's a size comparison

Play videos while reading the newspaper

Keyboard attachment. Verticle or Horizontal capability.

My thoughts:

Its a giant iPhone.

I want wireless controllers to play games.

Can’t say I’m a fan that it has the iPhone type software & not an actual operating system.

Good, it can run iWork

Can it run multiple apps at the same time?

No camera/video conferencing?

Where are the USB ports?

Can’t download any regular old programs.

No new iPhone,  Macbook news? Oh well.

–thanks Gizmodo for the liveblog updates.
