How dare you accuse me of spreading FUD Column. I won't have it!

It would be funny though - you could give the person next to you on the bus / train a good dose of cellphone radiation while you natter away.

or, reheat your lunch while you chat. It's like a portable personal microwave.

Apple Announces U.K. IPad Prices, More Countries

Have you been waiting eagerly for the iPad to be available outside the U.S.? If so, then today is your day: Apple announced on Friday that it will make the iPad available in nine more countries this summer, as well as dishing on the prices for pre-ordering in the U.K.

Despite the delay in international shipments, on May 28, the iPad will wing its way to Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Spain, Switzerland, and the U.K. Customers in those countries will be able to pre-order all six iPad models from Apple beginning this coming Monday, May 10. In addition, in July, the iPad will come to Austria, Belgium, Hong Kong, Ireland, Luxembourg, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, and Singapore. Prices and pre-ordering details will be available for those countries closer to their availability.

In the U.K., the Wi-Fi-only iPads will sell for £429, £499, and £599 for 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB respectively. The 3G models will go for £529, £599, and £699 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB. All prices include the U.K.'s Value Added Tax (VAT); the iPads will be available through brick-and-mortar and online Apple Stores, as well as select Apple resellers. There's no news yet on what the prices of 3G plans in the U.K. will be, though British providers such as Orange, O2, and Vodafone all said last month that they will offer dedicated iPad data plans.

Dell launches Streak tablet PC across Europe

PC giant Dell has joined the increasing number of firms offering a tablet device.

The world's number three computer manufacturer says that its Streak - also known as the Mini 5 - is the first of a number of planned products.

The Streak is smaller than most tablets with a 5in (12.5cm) screen and runs Google's Android operating system.

Analysts said it was a "significant" launch that marked Dell's return to the handheld computer market.

"This is a data device first and a voice device second," Tavis Butler of Dell told BBC News.

It looks too small to be a proper tablet. Also not the best name.

I think the fact the size allows it to be used as a phone, unlike the iPad?

For anyone with an Ipad, the Irish App store is finally open. Lots of fun apps to browse!

No it isn't

Still no access to ibooks etc for me. Seems like Ireland's store will be available when it launches here (July?).

After all the hullabaloo of people loving / hating on it I am finding it quite nice to browse the net on. I use it more than my laptop.

Looking forward to the launch of the store here though. Then I'll be able to get my own .epub books (open source format apple uses for the books).

Roll on july!

Kneel, are you sure? Up until last weekend I couldn't access the App Store as it was "not available", but it is now open and I have downloaded lots of apps.

The prices are also in Euro.

I see no point in the iPad, except for people who pride themselves to be "early adopters" (also called "suckers").

I don't begrudge early adopters. I've done it myself a few times in the console area. But I do think the iPad is not a good deal functionality-wise. I would definitely miss Flash.

Give it time Thomas. MS, Mozilla and Apple have all said they are going to move away from it. Flash (in it's full version) isn't suited to mobile devices.

Not sure what's the future though. HTML5 seems to be getting a lot of traction because it's open source. The next couple of months should be interesting after apple release the next iphone.
