i-Pad

There are a few critics that can influence the market. One such critic is Walt Mossberg, whose endorsements (or lack of it) can either get a product off to a good start or put a dent into the launch effort. Here is what he had to say about the i-Pad, which launches tomorrow. The full article is here.

For the past week or so, I have been testing a sleek, light, silver-and-black tablet computer called an iPad. After spending hours and hours with it, I believe this beautiful new touch-screen device from Apple has the potential to change portable computing profoundly, and to challenge the primacy of the laptop. It could even help, eventually, to propel the finger-driven, multitouch user interface ahead of the mouse-driven interface that has prevailed for decades.
