It's not really that, it was the fact that the technology hadn't advanced enough to be practical. We all didn't have microwaves until they became cheap enough to put in everyone's home, right?
Technology gets cheaper as years go by, but what I don't understand is why an oversized ipod gets more attention (which is currently at $370ish for the cheapest, shit model) than tablet computers, the cheaper of which are similarly priced and come with full flip out keyboards, run Windows 7 (or any other OS you want to install -- it's a fucking computer!) and have full computer capabilities. Some can even play DECENT games!
Let's compare the iPad to the Acer ICONIA tab. The ICONIA is currently around $450, $100 more than the 16GB iPad, but it has a 32GB SSD. It has a keyboard dock for typing, too, something you have to buy extra for the iPad for a decent chunk of change. If you compare the iPad 32GB, you're paying more (at $500), and still no keyboard.
Plus, the iPad only runs iOS. So this means no games, programs, or anything useful. It's a shit tablet.
The ICONIA has a dual core 1GHz AMD processor and 2GB of RAM -- plenty to play some decent older games, like, Diablo II, The Sims, GTA3/GTA:VC, other garbage. It could probably play some modern games, too (Super Meat Boy or some shit?).
Point is, the iPad is about to become obsolete compared to the technology that is being developed in the other side of computing -- the useful side, the PC side. Once someone incorprates 4G connectivity into a PC tablet under $500, the iPad will just be pointless.
It will still sell though. Because people are mindless corporation hogs who will die to support a brand that they believe in, even if it's shit and outdated.

Apple isn't focused on selling to the people that want capable machines to do advanced things. Using an analogy, apple is like the Wii, seemingly creative and intuitive without any real power to back it up. Has a few things that are fun for many, and fewer that are fun who want to take their involvement in the product seriously. Other tablets are like the PS3 and XBox 360, where people who are more invested in taking the whole industry seriously spend their money. Then everyone who wants it to do everything just goes and buys a PC.
As a final statement, Apple's Ipad line is not a line of tablet computers. Yes, it can be seen as a tablet, but very little of it's functionality is similar to what a tablet computer should be able to do. It's simply a large overpowered iTouch. It's not even comparable to modern tablet computers.
