lol, do you realize what a 32gb iPhone 3gS costs WITHOUT contract?

$699


Hence why the iPod touch is so nice.

No 3G or 4G announced (thus far), but with the iWork integration, I could see $699 or $799.

The eReader software looks great. I might be a buyer after all. I mean, at the right price. I'm not giving them a thousand dollars for one.

Books, movies, magazines will all apparently work great on iPad. But they will work great on a laptop too, which has a real keyboard.

And so does the Kindle, but the form factor still makes for a great reader.
