The Latest on the iPad: We’re in Future Shock


In the few days since Apple finally revealed all about its iPad tablet PC the tech world has writhed with excitement and outrage. Tiny nuggets of information have leaked out too, so we’ve rounded up the best of it for you.

Over at TUAW they’ve got a short summary of two different analyst’s predictions for iPad sales: Shaw Wu of Kaufman Brothers, and Charlie Wolf of Needham. Apple’s own figure for iPad sales is that 10 million units will fly off the shelves in the nine months of 2010 after its March launch.

Why so much caution? It’s probably a reflection of how different the reality of the iPad is compared with the unicorn dust-sprinkled expectations that resulted from all those years of cumulative rumors.
