There's a big difference between an iPad and an iPod. Not just a single vowel.

You will regret the purchase IMO. I had one for a few weeks and soon learned that didn't fill any purpose better than the numerous other gaming/portable/computing devices in my house.

Bad time to buy an iPad 2, wait for release for the iPad 3 and wait for iPad 2 prices drop unless you do want the iPad 3 at the Apples inflated pricing.

Don't they just chuck every iPad 2 in the dumpster out back when the iPad 3 ships in? :P After all, the new one will have a better camera or something else fundamental to the operation of the machine, so the old ones become useless instantly. :P

Depends on how much you move about, I find mine invaluable. Far easier than lugging a full laptop about.

I want Android devs to hurry the fuck up and make their software better for tablets, because the Transformer Prime form factor would be perfect (and even better if they added a digitizer).

I'm just using an ipad 1, but its invaluable for me. Saves toting kilograms of musical notation, good size for working on while commuting, wish it was little thinner and lighter but otherwise, best device I've ever owned. Looking forward to seeing what the third version has to offer, and if its not that great I will just get a cheap ipad 2.

I carry the following in my bag (new bag arriving today that should carry more though);

MacBook Pro 13"
Asus Zenbook UX21E 11.6"
iPad2
iPhone4S x2
Kindle
Chargers for all
Backup batteries for all USB chargables...
Notebook (paper kind)
Pen

Those people whining that an iPad is too much to carry around, clearly haven't found a decent satchel bag, I use my iPad about 7 hours a day, that being said though... if an 8" iPad is release, I might get that, provided it is as powerful as the 10inch, as I would like a portable tablet that takes a little less room.

I just pull my phone out of my pocket for mobile use. If I'm on the lounge and can't be bothered leaning over my beer to get my laptop, or actually getting off my arse to go to my PC, I just use my phone to find that quick Google fact I was searching for. My point is most houses already have 2-3 points of access to the internet these days, and most peoples pockets also contain one. The tablet is a largely useless piece of kit, that Apple have very cleverly marketed, and somehow create a huge demand for.

Sure, for some people using it as a portable note pad is a good alternative to a laptop. But the fact is, most of the people (that I know with them at least) got them purely for the sake of having one.

Tada.

"Retina" 256ppi display, A5X processor (with "quad-core" graphics), bit thicker but same battery life, American LTE. Not bad.

Well it looks to be alright. No facelift which I dislike, but the new resolution seems pretty cool. 4g is nothing at the moment but I guess when it starts to become more mainstream, it will be good to get a 4g one. I am considering it but it certainly hasn't sold me on it yet.

Shame that LTE here in Aus uses a different band (1800mhz) than America :(

I'm sure the iPad3 or whatever it's called will eventually support Aussie 4g.
