The iPad came out in Japan this weekend, so when I was at Yodobashi near my house earlier today I checked it out. It is nice, but 500 bucks for a 16GB model or like $700 for the 64GB? You’ve got to be kidding me. Probably not anything I’ll be able to afford in the near future. I think I’d rather spend $100 on the iPad I blogged about last night. Of course the real iPad has a nice interface and all, but it’s so pricey! The store display model was connected to wi-fi to let you try it out, so we checked out how sites like IUSTV.com and SarahJessicaParkerLooksLikeAHorse.com would look. Pretty much just like on a computer, but with touching and horizontal/vertical flipping.
We also tried YouTube and watched the IES Train Introduction Video and NR7000 doing his anime dance. Ah technology.
