I sure won't be buying one, honestly I'm not the type of person to use tablets often, so I would just settle for a Nexus 7..

Wish it was $199 or even $249 I think they priced the iPod Touch too high.

Hmmm, I wonder if that'll be $329 for 8GB. Either way, that's a bit too high. I was planning on getting one, but not at that price. Could probably find an iPad (3rd gen) close to that price on Craigslist.
