How does the Apple iPad size up to other popular portable devices, gaming and otherwise? We've compiled a sizing chart that compares the iPad to items with similar functions, which could have folks digging out their old Etch-A-Sketches.
The iPad is definitely larger than I imagined it. It turns out our little throwaway joke about the Etch-A-Sketch is rather poignant, as it's the closest in size to the iPad, so if you'd like to know what that'll feel like in your lap, I'm sure you can find an old broken Etch-A-Sketch somewhere. Now all we need is an official Etch-A-Sketch application, and we'll have the world's stupidest reason to spend $499.
Check out the full chart below, and then click on it to make it bigger, so you can actually read it.
