Just another gimiky toy which people will soon tire from. I'm not a fan of apple products, probably why I seldom use my iphone 3g and reverted back to my 10 year old samsung mobile.

I have read an article on MSNBC that Apple already has a new updated iPad.

link:
http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/35901355

Wait another year for the iPad to improve. The iPad will get better.

[Edit]: whoops! I guess they took down that article fast! lol

I got mine on Saturday morning and after playing with it ever since, this morning was the first time I had to put it on the charger, the battery life is really something on that thing. Overall I think it's a great unit, web browsing is a very pleasant experience with it's nice bright back lit screen. My only real complaint is the apple store, when you browse apps it no longer allows you to sort by "Free" in the categories mode. They've deliberately crippled it to boost sales from the looks of it, searching out free apps is tedious at best.

I got one... it replaced my nook as an e-reader. Only downside is lower battery life

Although it is marketed, among other uses, as an E-Reader, it simply just isn't.

The main reason why it is never usefull as an E-Reader other then for some short reading is the screen.

A "real" E-Reader has a screen that uses Electronic Paper.

Difference with a regular screen like used on the I-Pad:
- No light or radiation emitting. This makes it possible to read a long time without irritated eyes or headaches and such.
- Only uses battery when building a page on screen. Once the page is on screen, no more power is used. Because of this battery power is only comsumed when turning pages, not while reading giving it a very long battery life. It is not uncommon to be able to read 7.000 pages on a single battery charge.
- Once the page is build, it is not refreshed all the time like with a conventional display. Again easier for the eyes and battery.

But i think Apple is breaking their heads on how to make this device sound usefull and better then any other tablet PC that is already on the market for a long time.

PS I do have experience with real E-Readers as i use them on a regular bases.

I easily get 10 to 12 hours of heavy usage before I have to recharge, in fact it's one of the most well liked benefits. Are you sure you fully charged it before your first use?
