I wish Microsoft good luck -- because competition is good for consumers. However, like always, they announce the "great new product" before they've got a working one -- and use their reputation to make people hold off so they can get almost as good from Microsoft -- unfortunately, their Halo in the consumer/education space isn't that useful.
The iPad is letting Apple back into the school rooms -- because schools like the easy to manage device that can look at their servers for updates -- and NO KEYBOARD is actually a plus in environments where you pass things around.
A STERILE interface has GOT to be the Killer Application for hospitals. Where this iPad will reign supreme before a real competitor can get in the market. And while they play catchup -- Apple is going to be integrating more really useful things. Interesting times.
