While I agree iPad would work well, I think they have been going after that in the legal department just because of its similarity to the name iPod.

That's exactly what I would do if I get one. I can't imagine it doesn't have Bluetooth compatibility or at lease 1 USB!
We shall see in a few days. I can't imagine it not coming with a USB port. At this point I don't know if u should be excited or upset. I'm just going to hold out and see what Apple say on the day.

:)

I really don't think its going to be coming with a USB port because have you seen how thin that thing is?
I think it'l come with some sort of USB connection, most devices these days have some form or universal connection. You don't want to walk round with the new tablet and about 4-5 different cables. I know Apple like their own gear, I just can't see them not incorporating some form of USB connection. It would be stupid if they didn't.

Im reading now that this thing may possibly going to Verizon? Why is it going to verizon I don't understand is this a phone aswell?
I've read that both verizon and att will have the tablet. I've also heard that there will be a compulsory data plan, as well. God I hope not! Of course, you all remember all the rumors during the pre-release of all the iPhones! More than half of them were false.

A required data plan would definitely take me out of the picture, but you are right about rumors. I'm just going to kick back until Wed. and see what shakes out. Wish I was off that day. Would call in, but called in last Wed. because I actually was sick.

SO can we watch this online or what? I don't work that day either and was planning on hitting the Apple store anyways. Maybe I will wait and see when this starts and if I can watch it before heading out

Yeah I am wondering the same thing do they post this sort of stuff online or do you have to just be there to see it? How can I either read or see whats going on? I asked this once before but never got an answer so hopefully someone can answers our questions.

There is usually several sites streaming pictures and commentary. And usually Chris does something special on here.

Maybe you won't be required to have a data plan if you have a smartphone date plan already. I can dream can't I?

I can tell you the chatroom will be hopping that day...

Aaaaand now that I've said that, I'll surely get booked for a session during the presentation.
