I got to check it out firsthand yesterday, and it's pretty impressive despite its drawbacks . . . Are you planning to buy one?

It's here! Yesterday's announcement of the iPad was met with both praise and criticism, depending who you ask. Some big wins: the thin construction and amazing photo and video clarity; some big misses: no camera, and the ability to run only one application at a time (just like the iPhone or iPod Touch). The biggest surprise? The iPad starts at $499, which is pretty incredible, considering the first iPod retailed for $400 in 2001. The highest-priced version of the iPad is $829 for 64MB of storage and a 3G connection.
