iWant: Apple iPad in Seoul, Korea
Now I really want the iPad. I think that it will really be great for all the work that I do. Most of my work involves working with clients, writing, and creating. Even though I would love to be able to pull out my laptop and just work anywhere, I feel that a laptop needs a desk. I feel like with the iPad, I could walk around and work. With all the food that I eat, I think this great for my health. I love to walk and work. I know this sounds weird, but I like to walk while reading books.
Anyway, I think that this product will be useful for cooks and restaurants as well. At this price point, I could see these products becoming the ordering consoles for restaurants and even menus. I could see chefs using these in the kitchens to write down recipes, keep inventory, and many other functions.
This product is going to be a game changer, but I think more for business and retail applications.
Sure, I would like an external camera (I don't want one for visual chat) and I would like an SD slot, but...at this price point, I can't complain. It's a thousand times better than a netbook. I had an MSI wind in the past and I got rid of it after a couple of months. You can read about it here: http://www.seouleats.com/2008/08/msi-wind-for-blogging.html
I can't wait until this product comes to Seoul.
