iPad is not a big iPod touch

I don’t get it. What happens that no one pays attention to what they are saying?

When iPad was unveiled, everyone started saying it looked like a big iPod touch, or an iPhone. I think no one ever stopped to really think about it. Apple design is quite minimalist, so we really have to look deep in the details, and that is why I disagree that iPad’s looks is derived from the iPod touch.

If you take a closer look, it is looks much more like a MacBook Pro display with a home button than an iPod. Can you see any polished and reflective metal back? No. It’s aluminum unibody comes definitely from the MacBook Pro heritage, and it has a uniform black frame around the screen, just like the MacBook Pro display.

I know its display is multitouch capable, it runs iPhone OS and has a Home button, but in terms of looks, design and details, it is much closer to the Macbook Pro than to the iPod touch, so, please, let us all stop calling the iPad a giant iPod touch…
