I spent the better part of this morning in my local Apple Retail Store (always a good time), but today was extra special with the obvious release of the iPad.

I shall post some images and video later in the day, but check out this short audio of my first impressions and observations.

Update: One thing I just realized about the attached CinchCast widget is that it’s flash based !! So it won’t show up on an iPad – 1st fail of the day.
