Apple Begins Taking Orders for iPad

The day that so many Apple fans have been waiting for has finally arrived. This morning, Apple started taking orders for the iPad, which is due to be released on April 3. The device, which has been extremely anticipated, was introduced on January 27 and is described by Apple as being between the iPhone and MacBook. The device itself is still a bit of a mystery since Apple hasn’t really made it available for review or testing.

Nevertheless, many people have taken the plunge and ordered an iPad in hopes that it will provide a very new and different type of computing experience. Apple has a history of releasing innovative products and many future iPad owners have said they think the new device will be no exception.

Though analysts have predicted that iPads will not be widely used at corporations, some employees at companies have ordered them. Developers who hope to create applications for the iPad have also ordered the device.

Apple has not responded to requests for comment about the pre-orders, but according to some Apple watchers, the pre-orders were coming in at an impressive rate of 20,000 per hour.

    If I had unlimited funds, yeah, i’d buy it. But these days, if it doesnt fill a void or isnt something that is better than what is already out, i wont buy it.

    I like apple products, I own an Imac, and it is way less of a pain in the you know what than a pc. My iphone is a DO ALL device as well.

    I see no point in the iPad. The best thing that would come out of this is huge profit on ebay. I may pick two or three up just to sell them on ebay once they inevitably sell out on day one. :)

    Till then,
