Introducing the Apple iPad Comments

  1. cheap high speed memory card says:

    I don't think the ipad is that exciting. its sort of a mix between a normal tablet pc and the iphone. the ipad shouldn't be able to support the actual modern warfare 2 game. when Steve Jobs introduced it he showed it playing a stripped down version (lame graphics) of Need for speed shift so i guess if they do make a modern warfare 2 for that it will pretty much be like the NFSS game that was shown. i think of it as a jumbo iphone with long battery life.
