I have seen the ads and all it shows is some guys loading web sites, or reading or listening to something that he has downloaded from Itunes or from a web site. Now me, I am a writer and I also love to read. I also am slightly far sighted. So is the Ipad just a web surfer, itunes downloader, or can I use it as a word processor, and write on it as well. And can I put my own stuff on it.

When I first seen the Ipad I thought it was pretty cool but I wouldn't ever buy one because I already a very good high grade mobile and I have to many gadgets which would make it pointless to have one. I doubt I would use it as often as I do my laptop but I did get that feeling of taking a chance on getting one. I think it's like a light version of a laptop, although I have no idea what it can and can't do. Sorry I couldn't be of more help but I suspect that 5 months gone, as already given you your answer. Did you buy one?

The only thing is that it would make it easier to read ebooks and to show photos, Now I read on my iphone but sometimes do not like to turn all those pages. There are a lot of apps for the iphone that well are easy to see if one is nearsighted, After akk it is hard to read a Dictionary description or a web page when you have to move the page from side to side to see it all. In that case, the ipad would make it so I could read the whole page. I have not got one yet as I already made a major purchase and it does need improvements, Like for instance a camera,

I've been able to play around with a few iPads, and the user interface and everything is exactly like the iPhone or iPod Touch. If you're thinking of buying it as an e-book reader, I would definitely wait till next year when Apple is going to make some amazing upgrades, like the retina display probably, and the gyroscope for better motion sensing. It may also be a bit faster and will have more RAM.

I will wait for next year. I do need reading glasses for very small print and I do think it will be improved quite a bit. I was wondering, for instance, since the Iphone 4 is coming up, why they did not have an Ipad that worked on the 4 gig network. So I figured that at least a few months but more then likely next year. Then I will have saved enough to buy it all at once and it would come in handy - no squinting to see the articles as I have to do on Iphone. And no making a mistake and opening the wrong page.

The iPad can read ebooks with an LIQUID CRYSTAL DISPLAY screen so you can read at nighttime without having to employ any accessaries like a volume visible radiation, reading lamp, or glow stick to change state your book into something that is really available in bed. You won’t trouble your spouse when you read in bed, and your best indication can be done anyplace because you can download books wherever you are since the iPad 3G is linked to the Net wherever you are. Let alone that the iPad has pored books from all over the world into a free subdivision based on the Project Gutenberg website. Consequently, you can read liberal volumes from the comfortableness of your private digital library without any difficult work whatsoever in purchasing them at the shop, linking your device to a data processor and downloading them, or engaging them from the library. This really modern device might but bring back indication once more to the masses. Yes surely you can put your own stuff on it and its very much similar to ipod you have app store as well in it!! :)

It sounds like something I can use. I will be getting one after I finished getting my Macbook Pro. I like the idea of the Ipad and when I saw it at Future Shop and at Best Buy even though it was not the 64 gig version because well I live in a working Middle Class part of the city, I said I am going to save to get the best version just as I tend to get the best version of the Macbook Pro. I will have to budget very carefully for it though.

My iphone can be used as a basic camera, store photos, as well as an audio book plus an ebook, plus I can do notes, finances, etc. I think that the Kindle is rather limited. And being not nearsighted, i want something large.
