One of the early slides from Jobs’ keynote today:
I am sure that there are many companies that would love the kind of publicity that surrounded the product launch of the iPad. I won’t summarize the many pundits whoÂ predicted the attributes of the new tablet, or what they will now say is good or bad about the product.
But it does show a company at the top of its game. Still able to innovate. Still able to garner unprecedented excitement.
A few things surprised me about today’s announcement. The name. It is a bit lame. The price. It is lower than I would have expected. And the Apple iBooks application and iBookstore will support the ePub format.
Will people line up for this product? Will it be a Kindle killer? Will I buy one?
