That said, I've never been a fan of the iphone (or ipod touch) games. I do own a few but got tired of them after a couple of minutes, and regret spending money on them. The screen is just too small, the device too slow (on that front the iPad could do better). If I want to game I'll use a real PC or game console.
Maybe, but then it's competing against the Sony PSP or the Nintendo DS...
Tough, if it can accomplish this then it would be nice to game on it (but still not handy to carry with you )

Experiment and innovate? You must be ing kidding me right?

Here:








HP had this way back in 2003/2004

You could detach or attach that keyboard dock at your leisure, turning it from a slate design to a normal tablet. I would venture to say, seeing all the videos on youtube with the HP Compaq TC1100 running Windows 7 that it's still 10 times better and more useful than the MAXiPAD although it was made 7 years earlier.

Probably not that much because the difference between the top-left and top-right camera won't be that much.
It would be cool for creating 3D images tough, this many camera's should give an accurate depth field with not to wide optics

When you stich several photo's into a single one, the resolution of the stitched image isn't just the sum of the pixelcount of a single image as the images have to overlap (and the pixels in this overlap are dropped or combined).
These camera's are so close to each other that the difference between every image won't be much more than a few 100 pixels (in other words, every picture only adds a few 100 pixels to the stitched image).
Of course, when these camera's would have a long focal distance, this effect is minimised, but you'll end up with gaps between images when you try to shoot from a closer distance (and I'm talking in meters right now )

well, you can have the camera's point outwards in a spiral, so you get a really nice circular panoramic view.

anyway; why are we discussing a 300 camera ipad?

Apple should do that

I have no clue why we are discussing this, maybe it's the only interesting thing about the iPad
