The much-anticipated Apple iPad went on sale in the U.S. Saturday. Droves of Apple fanatics waited in line outside stores to be among the first owners of the new touch-screen tablet technology.
Early morning buyers were greeted at Apple stores with applause and fanfare as they went in to purchase the iPad.
The hyped iPad didn't come about without criticism, however. Customers who bought the tablet complain about the lack of a USB port and embedded camera, something iPod Nanos even have nowadays. The iPad can also only run one application at a time.
But the criticisms don't outweigh the excitement over the device.
"I'm going home to play with it," iPad buyer Dimitri Bouniol told USA Today. He even uploaded his very own application "Elements" onto his brand new device.
