      Dell are bringing out something similar soon; also HP and a lot of Netbook makers are planning 'keyboardless' Notebooks - so there will be competition at some point. Amazon are also not going to lie down and there's rumors of a Kindle using Windows 7.

      I'm generally anti-Apple, and usually their products are very good, but due to superior marketing the better products get lost - for example - the iPod is not the best mp3 player (in terms of music quality) - but it does have a huge market share down to great viral marketing and one of the best 'intuitive' interfaces...

      ...however, the iPad is one Apple product I actually like - sure it seems like a glorified iPhone - but I think it's the way the Notebook market should have gone years ago....it's so much easier to carry around than a Laptop, versatile and while the keyboard dock is useful, it doesn't need one...

        what is the best MP3 player in your opinion?  I want to get one but I was thinking the Ipod might be overpriced and there is probably something better out there - what is it?

          Well in my opinion the best sounding is the Sony Walkman. The Zune and the Sansa are pretty decent as well - the iPod is good too....the only one that really stood out for me when I tested them was the Sony - but it's only barely noticeable.

          The iPod is the easiest to use - however the Sony, Zune, Sansa allow you to use subscriptions services....

          ...it's down to preference at the end of the day....they all can donwload from iTunes now too....

    I'm using one to answer your post right now.

    I think you are sort of naive to ask what's going to replace something that's just hit the market.

        I've only had it two days, but I think it's going to be just what I need for when I travel.  You can read the Hub I have which talks all about it.

      I think she's referring to competition, not replacing. And there will be very soon, otherwise a lot of computer companies are going out of business, as Simey C points out.

      I'd like to get one and see what it's all about. Sounds cool.

    i have a 5th generation iPod and i love it! it's a lot slimmer and more stylish-looking than the Zune, IMO. plus it sounds great and has great resolution!

    I just purchased an iPad yesterday, now that I'm getting accustomed to the change its pretty cool. I guess there are supposed to be about 100,000 free apps that will be available for it soon, and of course there are other apps that cost money as well. 

    Its extremely slick and skinny. 

    It seems to work pretty fast, unless your watching HD video... sometimes it will run slower if that happens.

    I havent had much time on it yet but I plan on writing a few hubs about what I think about it, and I will also touch on the disadvantages of the ipad as well.

    Nope not yet as it won't be available in my country till the end of April. I will be excited to see what that baby can do.

    I have had mine about a month - using it right now, by the  way.

    I love it. Perfect size/weight, incredible battery life.  Let's me do 95% of my daily work without my computer.

    Can't post to a Hub, though.  Do not know why, hope they come up with a solution.

      The only part of making a hub I really can't seem to do via iPad is the links capsules.  I have an email I need to send the admin team, as I've been using my iPad with my Hubs for two months now.

        Then I must be doing something wrong.  When I click on edit in a capsule, it looks like I'm in it, but I cannot type. 

        Any clues?

    Yup did test the iPAD.As for me it didnt live up to its expectations.Or maybe I was asking for a bit too much.It does come with a lot of disadvantages which can easily be rendered.
