iPad Hands-on Round Up -- Who's touched where and what they think!

TiPb hasn't had a chance to get any hands-on time with the no-longer mythical Apple iPad, announced today, but that doesn't mean we can't live vicariously through the awesome power of the interwebs. What does TiPb think? If you call the iPad a big iPod touch, you're right. If you think that's a bad thing, you're nuts fully justified, but we see it as a huge positive, if only a first step. Removing the constraints imposed by a small screen? Yeah, the iPhone OS is just getting started. Apple is legitimately excited about this, and that means iPhone OS, and iPhones are going to benefit. Love. Up.

Now here's a quick rundown of some of the coolest bloggers in the sphere (in alphabetical order), and what they think of the iPad.

Give them a read and let us know if they change any of your opinions!
