    Yes but that's not any selling point what so ever. If your trying to beat competition they should come up with reasons why it's better. I find that I'm around the house my phone is too small. And I don't wanna get the MacBook out so I wish I had a bigger screen......an iPad. I'll def be getting the iPad 2G

    This is getting ridiculous. With tablets running os that are on phones, using cellaur data, and getting a little smaller with each new tablet, how are we going to able to tell the difference between phones and tablets. Besidesmy iPhone can do everything other tablets can and vice versa who's to say my iPhone isn't a tablet?

    The "it's just a big iPhone" plea preys on the people that don't own an iPad b/c once you own one you realize that's a big load of crap That goes for everyone that says it on here too lol.
    I continue to disagree. My girlfriend has one and there is nothing I ever want to do with it that I can't do on my phone, PERIOD. I can see it being useful for media consumption, but I don't travel enough to arrant a movie player, and there is no argument that as a music player it is completely on par with iPhone. To plenty of people it is just a giant phone, but to those same people, this Motorola device will be just a giant android device.

    love this commercial
    Once you purchase a product surely its up to you if you put it in a blender or drive over it in a car, what right do Apple have to stop us abusing our stuff? thats like saying you can't slap your girlfriend, she's your girlfriend, you own her, you can do what you want to her lol

    I don't play veggie samurai on anything, nor do I really have an interest to. Wasted enough money on iOS games that take all of 15 seconds to beat. No thanks!

    The entire commercial was meant as a joke, not a slew of selling points. This should be crystal clear when they start comparing it to things like the ten commandments. You don't seriously think they were SERIOUS about why the ten commandments tab is inferior to their product, do you?

    I've always thought that type of marketing was pretty corny. It's like a man asking another woman "what's he got that I haven't got?



    I say spend more time noting what YOUR product can DO, not what you feel the competition CAN'T...especially since any product has the potential to suck, regardless of how much the other products do OR don't suck.
    Interesting. This was Apple's marketing strategy with their Mac v PC ads for about five years.

    Let them call it what they want. Technically speaking, it's pretty similar to an iPhone or itouch as others pointed out. It lacks calling and a camera as well as other networks besides 3G and wifi. But it's all about size with the iPad. Reading, surfing, and playing games on the iPad is far batter than on the iPhone/touch.

    I think we are losing perspective in that...which company produced the FIRST cellular telephone?
    Sure they may have fell out of the cellphone market, but who is not to say they will find a niche in the tablet market.
    Motorola has alot of ties to Sony, especially with the Playstation phone.
    Much of the new Droid firmwares (especially Honeycomb, which will be first featured on this tablet) are stepping up all things gaming. So possibly they are trying to up their tablet a notch in gaming purposes alone.
    It's not like Apple has suffered with the release of their iPad. Ultimately to continue in the market (even for the evolution of the iPad) something has to be done to "one up" a rivals device.

    Since you got a iPad for free and don't like it, I'll give $20 for it.
    Just because I don't think it is all that great doesn't mean I don't know it's value(lol)....I will off load it shortly though

    When the iPad first came out, i thought it was stupid and was on the bandwagon with saying it was just an oversized ipod touch. Well months later after being kinda intrigued by one, i bought one. And surfing the net, watching movies, reading books and PDFs. Playing games on it is really fun too. (not that i am game much but i do from time to time) my son loves it for all his games and books that are on there, and he loves to play the interactive educational games too, and hes only 1 1/2 years old. Its not just an over sized iPod Touch.

    the iPad is just a giant ITOUCH, not iPhone.


    Isn't funny on how everyone spins off of Apples ideas?

    iTouch> Touch screen ZuNeS!!!
    iPhone> Andriod, Sunburst, HTC, etd
    iPad> some stupid touch screen tablets other cheap companies are making

    those advertisers sure got apple good! "its a giant iphone, its..... a giant iphone"
    "Indroducing...Giant iPhone! Better sound quality, and it fits right in your purse! Tired of using your fingers to slide to unclock? hell now you can use your HANDS!!!"

    this post makes me want to just go out and buy the ipad just for the hell of it

    You can put me in this category. I'm not quite a fanboy, but I love apple products, and to me it is just a big iPhone. I don't own one, but my best friend does and overall I've played with it for several hours.

    The bigger display does increase its functionality, but it's pretty much just a big iphone...that can't make calls or take pictures. That said, I'm saving up to buy one for myself!

    fanboi much? I'm not saying apple doesn't make some fine products, but everything is not their idea. IBM released a touchscreen cell phone in the 90s. In fact, even the "i" in iPhone, iPod, iPad was originally used by the iPAQ.
