So much for everyone getting rid of Flash! Here’s his review: http://s.wsj.net/media/swf/microPlayer.swf

Walt starts pretty positive:

For the past week or so, I have been testing a sleek, light, silver-and-black tablet computer called an iPad. After spending hours and hours with it, I believe this beautiful new touch-screen device from Apple has the potential to change portable computing profoundly, and to challenge the primacy of the laptop. It could even help, eventually, to propel the finger-driven, multitouch user interface ahead of the mouse-driven interface that has prevailed for decades.

A couple of details from the video:

  • Walt played videos continuously and the battery lasted 11.5 hours!  That’s 15% more than Apple had claimed it would last!  We could get used to these underestimates on battery life…
  • He found the onscreen keyboard easy to use and NOT a hassle
  • Walt says “program” kind of funky…
