Apple on Wednesday released its new iPad, putting an end to the tablet rumors and speculation. But now that the product has been unveiled, it’s time for the experts and analysts to chime in with their thoughts. Will the iPad be a success like the iPhone? Or will it follow the Apple TV and the Power Mac G4 Cube into the land of forgotten gadgets?
