The iPad is just a very big iPhone

by Professor

After all the fuss over the launch of Apple’s iPad, the folks at Chipworks have pulled apart the iPad to reverse engineer what’s under the hood. Guess what? … the iPad is nothing more than a really big iPhone. There was no leap forward in technology. They claim:

Apple has relied on tried and true technology for the first generation of this device. In some cases, technically speaking, Apple has even gone backwards from what we saw in the latest generation iPhone that we have torn down.

Me? I will wait. I will want to run more than one application at once (which it cannot yet do) and I want to browse websites that use Flash, which is an awful lot of sites (which it cannot yet do).
