When the iPad first came out, I went to try it and was impressed by the performance. However, I was kind of disappointed about the on-screen keyboard. You cannot really touch type using the on-screen keyboard. Even though Apple does sell an add-on keyboard, its implementation is not quite there yet, and it is limited to desktop usage.
