Flattering Apple. An update.

The iPad

So, it turns out that the iPad doesn’t hail a change in design direction for Apple. That’s a shame for 2 reasons:

1) I’d really, really like a clue as to what Apple’s future kit will look like. There have been 3 versions of the iPhone now and they’ve all looked very similar. I’m anticipating a new look for the 4th incarnation, presumably coming out this summer.

2) Other manufacturers have been able to anticipate what the Apple tablet would look like…

MSI Tegra tablet MSI Tegra tablet

DigitalRise X9 tablet DigitalRise X9 tablet

ICD T-mobile tablet ICD T-Mobile tablet

HP Slate HP Slate

Lenovo IdeaPad U1 Lenovo IdeaPad U1

JooJoo JooJoo

ExoPC Slate ExoPC Slate

Interesting to note that everyone has based their tablet around widescreen video, whereas Apple is pushing the iPad as a portrait-oriented device.
