I have a 3G iPhone, and I really like it. I am glad Apple exists to innovate and push the boundaries.

But whenever possible, I don't plan to buy any more closed system products. I agree with most of Tim Bray's points in his recent post about joining Google. http://www.tbray.org/ongoing/When/201x/2010/03/15/Joining-Google

My next phone will be Android based, but if the iPad used open standards and didn't restrict development, I would be in line pre-ordering along with you.

This device will bring about the resurgence of the "man purse" (how else to carry it?), which will lead to the Apple Fan Boys getting humiliated for their "man purse", and the product will generally fail, except in those markets where a "man purse" is acceptable...

Well I was a bit slow to catch on to the iPad but now having had the opportunity to put it through it's paces, it truly is a remarkable gadget.
I use it a lot for reading, newspapers as well as books
Far better than my kindle.
Highly recommended.

I concur with Stevaxx. I have been running comparison tests with the Kindle and in most repects iPad comes out on top.

The iPad is my tool of choice now.
