iPad - The Haves vs. The Have Nots

Another digital divide?

The Have Nots - It's just a big iTouch.
The Haves - It's not only a great size for viewing and portability. It changes what you do for reading, work and internet access.

The Have Nots - I don't need it.
The Haves - I don't "need" it either, but I am more productive with it.

The Have Nots - I already have a NetBook for better portability.
The Haves - So do I ... collecting dust...

The Have Nots - I need a real keyboard.
The Have's - The virtual keyboard works better than expected ... and the keyboard dock or Bluetooth work great.

The Have Nots - You can't get any real work done on that.
The Haves - I use it for work in more and more situations.

The Have Nots - I need Windows apps, a mouse, and Flash would be nice.
The Haves - There's an App for that !

The Have Nots - It doesn't do Multi-tasking
The Haves - That would be nice, but there are other methods ...

The Have Nots - I am waiting for Version 2 with a camera and whatever other cool things get added.
The Haves - I will probably get that also...  :-)

The Have Nots - Your just an Apple Fanboy ...
The Haves - Not really, I hope the Slate and Android Tablets are as good as the iPad... we will see. The iPad: size, battery life and touch interface have set a high expectation and validated a new device segment that is here to stay.

Any more Have vs Have Not opinions out there ?
