    Reading your post on my iPad. Months after owning it it still love it. Hopefully the next one will be better but I am not seeing any reason to upgrade already. Looking forward to the announcement.

    Seems like a waste considering the cost and its capabilities. A kindle would be a better match for you and cheaper. It has like a
    59999999999998765446 hour battery life which is perfect for travel on: planes- trains- ships- tanks- submarines- zeppelins- and even on the back of a tortoise!

    I just love Apple products. I have a Macbook Pro, IPhone 4 and I might as well have an iPad to match!

    There's an article on Slate from a guy who doesn't feel like his iPad does stuff that his iPhone / Macbook doesn't do better. You might want to borrow one first.

    A friend of mine sold his iPad today as soon as the press conference was over and it sold on ebay in 15 minutes.

    Ditto. Eyebrow raised. We shall see with 3 how things change memory wise.

    This is true. I really don't use mine for anything except reading books right now. Still trying to get it to work for data entry in the lab (electronic clipboard/notebook) But there's no direct way to exchange files with the server. The database clients available so far are somewhat crippled versions.

    Everything else is better on the laptop, or more convenient on the phone.

    a lot of people dont seem to quite get what tablets represent. It all comes down to interface, I can think of a million ways I can interact with a tablet that I cant do with a Laptop and that of course would be just claustrophobic to try it on a smartphone.

    I was surprised the memory sizes stayed the same as well. Seemed like the obvious upgrade. That said, I have a 16 GB WiFi + 3G and have yet to run out of space so I can't bitch to much.
