Hopefully in both Mini and Maxi versions. The Maxi for your more demanding computing days.
Capacity: 32gb/US 599.99, 64gb US 699.99, 128gb US 899.99
Actually I think your flash allotments are way to low at each price point and you are to stiff at each price point. Flash storage will be very important on this device, hopefully this will be something Apple understands at release. Any reliance upon cloud storage would be fairly stupid.
Operating System: Apple Mobile OS 4.0 (yes, they renamed it)
Rename it? I thought it was Mobile IS for some time now. It is common for people to call it iPhone OS but I'm not sure that is the official name.
Compatibility: All Existing iPhone/Touch apps (scaled as required) with a slew of new apps (innovative e-reading being the focus) designed specifically for the iPAD and its new capabilities/resolution.
Not to mention higher resolution iPhones in the future. I suspect though that E-Reading will just be another app. Oh the scaling of existing iPhone apps will not be universal. That will depend upon how the app uses the UI.
Connectivity: 3g featured on the Verizon Network, but optional tethering for existing AT&T iPhone users.
It sounds nice but I wouldn't get all that excited over tethering. Also I'd rather the tablet comes in a universal model when 3G is added. The reality is that a CDMA model would be worthless for people that travel. Which brings us to the most important issue the device can not be carrier locked.
Additionally: Absolutely NO OSX application compatibility, but will come with Apple Mobile OS versions of iLife and iWorks.
Yep! If people don't grasp that by now they never will. However I see the next version of Mobile OS gaining many features seen in Snow Leopard. These will be low level things like OpenCL and GCD to more fully leverage the hardware for the UI.
We'll See Soon Enough...
Yeah I can't wait. I was really hoping it was today that the debut would take place. As it is I have to work tomorrow. Bummmmmmmmmmer.
