Not quite true. I had a Palm Treo on Verizon which had not been crippled in any manner. Apple has done some good things, but your example is not one of them.
Here's what Nokia is doing: March 12 (Bloomberg) -- Nokia Oyj, the world’s largest maker of mobile phones, asked a U.S. judge to throw out Apple Inc.’s claims that it is trying to monopolize the wireless technology market and seize access to iPhone technology. Apple’s antitrust and breach of contract allegations are implausible and are “designed to divert attention away from free-riding off of Nokia’s intellectual property,” the Finnish company said yesterday in papers...

All that being said, I expect the 'Pad to sell very well.
Good points. But I note that much of the coverage has been negative. I also note that lots of folks are apt to jump on a bandwagon, and that things in short supply often seem extra-desirable.
