The iPad will have to be jailbroken.
There, I said it. Today Steve Jobs announced that apple would be shipping a glorified iPho.... Err, the iPad.
The iPad is a 9.7 inch version of the iPhone with a 1ghz apple manufactured CPU and other features which make it a larger version of the iPhone.
But who will jailbreak it. Or will it require jailbreaking? If it does indeed only connect to the AppStore then chances are that it is a closed device like the iPhone. The fact that it runs the iPhone OS re-enforces this.
I personally will not buy a locked down device for $499 (starting point) but the average user will probably buy into it for the ease of use and ebook features.
What about you? Will you buy one?
