iSlate | The Tablet Insider


Fake, but cool animation
iSlate with Sports Illustrated dialed in
Neat concept video
New York Times Executive Editor Bill Keller is looking to the future and that future includes an Apple tablet.
Interesting to say the least.

First islate video obviously bullshit

Looks Cool, but looks aren’t everything the price is the issue better off waiting a year for the bugs to flyout. The real problem is Apple customer service sucks!

The SI video is an excellent concept of both the iSlate design and what ‘live content’ could look like on a continuously connected device with the tablet form factor. Really cool.
If the iSlate can surf the net, has a local email client, allows me to read / watch content such as magazines, news papers, movies, TV shows, write word processing documents, open and publish PDF files, play Flash content, use all the iPod/iPhone apps, conduct Video Conferencing / phone calls, … all in full color (matte or not) with a battery that lasts at least 12 hours… I’ll buy it.

“Nice to haves” would be video / still camera (5 mp?), phone, tethering, compass, GPS, a haptic feedback touch screen ‘keyboard’… but not a “must haves”.

Crazy would be a true 3D interface.

I agree Edward – I’m 12 and my dad knows a bloke who gets refurbished macs and sells them on – if I wait a year-18 months after the iSlate release I could get one for £500 or about $825. Typical Apple, they’ll overprice the iSlate by alot.

That 2nd video is an entirely different product.

if the SI video is demo for having all the Times Inc mags in a format compatible with the iSlate (and probably delivered through Apple servers for the iSlate), then Apple starts building the case for the device to eventually eliminate all paper products. Such a device does not need to do everything that a personal computer can do, but it needs to excel at be a content delivery mechanism. Kindle’s and other ebooks have some features that make them superior for reading (for instance the legibility of the screen) but sacrifice other capabilities that make digital media come alive. The iSlate should bring content delivery into the 21st century…

Zune iPod | October 13, 2011 at 10:52 pm

I’ll gear this review to 2 types of people: current Zune owners who are considering an upgrade, and people trying to decide between a Zune and an iPod. (There are other players worth considering out there, like the Sony Walkman X, but I hope this gives you enough info to make an informed decision of the Zune vs players other than the iPod line as well.)
