    I couldn't agree more with nephilim; if anything the iPad is nothing more than an iPod Touch for the partially sighted...
    Just because it is a little different, I do like the look of the BlackBerry PlayBook though - having said that, the idea that you can only access 3G services by plugging it into a BlackBerry device sounds a little backwards to me...

    The winners seem a little odd. 'New media service of the year: Spotify'? They've been around for 2 years...

    No mention of Kinect, which is a fantastic technology. Best Computer? MacBook Pro. Odd as they were behind with their use of cpus until very recently, and now, they're way over the price I'd expect. (They go through phases, between 'decent value' and 'stupidly overpriced', currently in the latter). No mention of the new AppleTV, which with its movie stream rental service is a brilliant technology.

    Well, I've had an iPad for about three weeks now (my daughter ran off with the first one) and I can honestly say it's the best gadget I own. I don't use my laptop or desktop at home any more. Now I've started to write my own apps for it, it's something that is a joy to use and I never thought I'd ever say anything like that about an Apple product. Apple have raised the bar pretty high and their competitors will have to do something pretty damn impressive to catch up.

    I wonder what the state of mobile devices would have been now if Psion had kept going with innovations like the 5 and netBook.

    I've just been looking into alternatives for my brother, and the very first one I stumble upon is nearly twice the spec of the iPad for the same, if not less, dinero.

    Everybody!

    The technology would be brilliant, but it would be so unfashionable that no one would be seen dead with one.

    A quick google shows lists like "10 best alternatives to the iPad".

    Not sure how this one compares to iPad spec, but for 250-300 it really caught my eye:

    Notion Ink - Adam
