The iPad Is Not What I Expected

Quick impressions on the iPad, hot on the heels of my list of features my ideal ebook reader should have.

I have to say I was just that teensy-weensy bit underwhelmed.  The expectations for a larger iPhone or iPod Touch was bandied about with enough frequency that it would really be silly to expect anything less. 

But what was surprising to me was how much it matched what is essentially the iPhone writ large.  I did not expect that Apple would match what everyone has been saying for so long.  In other words, almost everything that was predicted came true, hence no wow factor.  At least for me.

I’ll wait till more information come out about the iBook app that’s bundled in the tablet to see how it measures up against my feature list.
