First came the hype. Next were the worries about 3G connections and general availability. Now much of the buzz surrounding the forthcoming Apple iPad, which is due in stores on April 3, is numbers based – how many iPads can Apple sell? And more important, will the iPad tablet match the strong initial sales of the Apple iPhone?

As Horizons blogger Chris Gaylord wrote last February, there is reason to be skeptical. "Many computermakers have dived into the tablet market over the past decade – most landing in a belly flop," Gaylord noted. "Some foresee a similarly soggy future for the iPad. It uses a virtual keyboard instead of real buttons, can’t load every website, and various models cost between $499 and $829."
