    Yeah, I feel this is more of a software kind of device. Its the software that makes it different and better, even though it may look like an ipod touch.

    Though, it does have great battery and processor

    The iPhone OS 3.1.3 is approximately 250 MB. iPhone OS 3.2, reportedly, is almost twice that: approximately 450 MB.

    just pointing out a typo

    Technically there is no typo as they both use iPhone os

    but yeah
    lol

    EDIT:

    Yeah I think that was intentional as they are both using iPhone os, only difference is is the OS version.

    Sorry gunzmaiet, I fail to miss the typo. Is it supposed to be iPhoneOS instead of iPhone OS?
    Edit: yeah it was intentional, both devices (iPhone/touch and iPad are running on an iPhone OS)

    I agree, the iPad is a software type device -- but the hardware specs are quite good too
