    Well, they laughed at the iPhone when it first came out. And they said the iPad won't get off the ground as it's just an over-sized iPod Touch. Guess who's laughing their way to the bank. ;)

    That's why I never dissed the iPad even when the tech pundits were all proclaiming it would never take off. The sales are in the US alone, I can only imagine how much more it would sell outside of the US once it's officially released. ;)

    I hope this brings down the price of future model releases, like $399 for the lowest model...

    I hope Apple doesn't ditch its Mac product line.

    Those who predicted doomsday for iPad before it was released were mostly geeks.

    They thought perhaps that any technological innovation like the iPad should address them as a primary market.

    It's the non-techie consumers that are bringing the high sales figures for iPad.

    Now, what are the naysayers saying now? :)
