Apple iPad Officially Announced

Apple's newest product wasn't a huge secret – the majority of observers predicted some form of tablet computer.  So the speculation mainly centered around what form their tablet computer would take: like an iTouch but “better”?  Some sort of iPhone/netbook hybrid?  Something revolutionary with technologies we've never seen before?  (Touch on both sides of the device?  Lasers to zap your enemies?) 

From the announcement today (and ignoring the patented Steve Jobs hyperbole), it sounds like an iTouch but bigger (with a healthy swirl of Kindlge thrown in too.) 

Here's a sample of the commentary:

But after proclaiming the iPhone the greatest invention in the history of inventions in my year-end wrap-up last year, I'm pretty excited to get my hands on the iPad.
