Ro Ye at the CU Blog takes a whack at the "things we don't know about the iPad" list, so here's my take on some of the questions he raises:
Ten hours of battery life, Really?
Yep! But then, do any estimates of battery life translate to your own experience? It never has for mine...the iPad will be just the same.
"Almost all" iPhone apps?
Well, "almost all" iPhone apps work on the iPod Touch, so, you know, the same applies.
Magazines on the iPad?
Are coming.
AT&T? Really?
Why not? I know, we all love to hate the carriers. But even AT&T thinks people will mainly use the iPad with WiFi (which i'm not sure if that's wishful thinking on AT&T's part, or they have some good information on that. Maybe they're just hoping that iPad users in New York will stick to WiFi.
How much for those accessories?
Way too much. That's why God invented third party manufacturers.
Why no Webcam?
Version 2!
How comfortable is the typing?
Pretty awful. Don't go writing War and Peace on it. But for web surfing and stuff, should be fine.  Blogging?  hmmmm.
Having more than one program open at a time?
Nope, nope, and nope. Live with it a little while longer.
