Walt Mossberg published his first impressions of the new Apple iPad. Apple did not hand out iPad review units yet to the tech pundits, but after the iPad keynote attending journalists could get a brief hands-on with the iPad.
Walt Mossberg says: "It’s about the software, stupid. While all sorts of commentators were focusing on how much Apple’s new $499 iPad tablet computer looks like an oversized iPhone, the key to whether it can be the first multi-function tablet to win wide public acceptance probably lies in whether consumers perceive it as a suitable replacement for a laptop in key scenarios. And that, in my view, depends heavily on the software and services that flow through its handsome little body."

Mossberg likes the iPad software, but is still on the fence about whether or not the whole package is going to be a winner. He calls the onscreen keyboard a liability for instance.
