      Really I see the idea of it, but I believe it is to handicapped for my money. If it could multitask (jailbroken iPad I'm sure will likely unlock multitasking but still) I could live without flash. But to lack both plus no USB port or camera is just to much $ not enough features for me.

      Maybe a 2nd or 3rd gen I'll be in, but certainly holding out for now.

      I will jailbreak it once the Dev team comes out with a jailbreak. I hope it will run Windows XP or something good with the extra processing power.

    Too pricey. Might be a unique gadget but definately not value for money like Whattadeal pointed out. Bet the fanboys don't agree with this Big Grin

    iPad won't tether to the iPhone which means you will need to buy another data plan to use it outside your house - even if you already have an iPhone and paying for data

    Apple will replace your iPad for $99 if your battery fails. Thats right $99 gets you a "new" iPad not just a new battery.

    "If your iPad requires service due to the battery's diminished ability to hold an electrical charge, Apple will replace your iPad for a service fee," the company states in a support bulletin currently posted on its Web site. The fee, according to the document, is $99.

    Pre-orders have now "ran out" and ship times for new orders are "ships by April 12th" on the wifi models 3G models remain "Late April".

    In store reservations have also been stopped. You can still try to get it in store though. If people who made a reservation are not there by 3pm the item will be sold to other customers on a 1st come 1st serve basis... So get your tents ready!

      Thanks for telling me Whatta. I called Apple, and they canceled no problem. I guess I will have to make a trip to my Apple store.

    Techcrunch writes that according to web traffic report released by Yahoo people who bought iPad in the first week it was launched were primarily going to sites like eBay and Craigslist for their shopping needs - an unusual fact considering the gadget can be barely considered a bargain.

    Maybe they were going there to (re)sell their iPads? Smile

      Or maybe they spent so much on the iPad that they have little money left, so now they have to buy the other things they need at bargain prices. Roll Eyes Amused
