Less than a month has passed since Apple unveiled the iPad and few technology products have spurred more divergent opinions and conversations than this unassuming tablet computer.

Some see the iPad as a tremendous new opportunity for businesses. Others believe the device is doomed to fail. Is it the future of computer human interaction? Or will people find the system too limiting?

To help explore the challenges, opportunities, and pitfalls associated with the iPad, we've put together a panel of experts who will tackle questions like:

  • If you currently have an iPhone app, what do you need to consider when making a decision about whether to make an iPad version?

  • How will the types of applications on the iPad be different than what we've seen on mobile phones? Will pricing change? Is there more or less opportunity for advertising?

  • How does the different form factor change the way applications are designed?

  • What does the iPad mean for publishers? Books? Magazines? Newspapers? Does this hint at a way out for the problems media has faced over the last few years?

  • How do web sites need to change to support the iPad (or do they)?

  • What does the iPad mean for the future of personal computing?

Come join us to learn from the panel and share your own thoughts on this next generation device.
