  We have garment printers in our company that require a windows computer.  They won't even work with an iMac running boot camp.  Does that mean a mac isn't a computer?  Of course not. Tons of printers sold in years past won't work with any computer on the market today.  Some require the no longer supported AppleTalk, others require parallel ports, or lack drivers.  The iPad prints.  Someone buying an iPad for their only computer can buy a supported printer for as little...
  there are plenty of great games in the app store.   printing - I just bought my daughter a printer for college, she can print directly to it from her iPad   USB for cameras - Apple sells an adapter   http://store.apple.com/us/product/MC531ZM/A/apple-ipad-camera-connection-kit   icloud is the backup. And it's free for up to 5 gigs.   fact is, the iPad can do all of the tasks you listed and a lot more, and does them quite well.  The specific connections used to accomplish...
  Just because you can do some things on some other computer doesn't make the iPad not a computer.  I can't use a macbook to run the web server for our company because we have too much traffic, does that mean the macbook isn't a computer?  Of course not.
  The iPad most certainly is a computer.  The question isn't is is a computer, it's is it a PC.  My answer is it's the most personal computer ever made.  Which is why it's so quickly become so popular.  69 million units sold this year alone and likely over 100 million units sold next year.  It's competing head to head with windows PCs for sales, how do you call it anything else.
strange world the analysts live in.   Sell a flash memory device with a 11 inch screen that has a pointing device where you tap, slide, pinch with your fingers, but have to coordinate the actions of your fingers with a virtual finger that's on the display. give it a mandatory physical keyboard and you have a "PC".   Move the pointing device onto the screen itself where you can directly manipulate the content, shrink the screen by 1", make the physical keyboard...
  You said "apple isn't locking anything up" then proceeded to explain just how they have managed to lock things up by effectively controlling a large percentage of the world's supply for the necessary equipment.  Not just now, but into the future.
Are you sur about this? I googled it and what I saw is the fast majority of sessions are wifi. I couldn't find a breakdown of wifi only iPads vs the models with built in cellular. I will only. Buy the cellular model, yet 90% of my own sessions are wifi. If this is the stat used, this is an awful way to calculate the sales for each model.
  It depends if Apple is satisfied with 60% market share or if they want 90% market share.  A 7" iPad priced at $249 could do for the iPad market share what the smaller iPods did for apple's MP3 market share when they were announce.  Companies were competing with less expensive devices with less capacity.  Apple made them all instantly irrelevant with it's expanded iPod line.  A 7" iPad (iPad mini?) has the potential to do the same thing.  Consider that Apple already...
So microsoft turned a tablet into a laptop computer that you can't actually use on your laptop.
  There are technical reasons - here is the reason for Siri - there is new hardware built into the A5 that is specifically to support Siri.  Apple won't release as substandard implementation on devices that don't have this hardware.     http://article-interlingual.blogspot.com/2012/02/iphone-4s-has-special-noise-reduction.html
