I come from Android (have a HTC Incredible) and just couldn't wait any longer to get a tablet, so I got the iPad. I haven't put the darn thing down pretty much since I bought it. Im surprised how many flash sites have converted over to HTML5, I was expecting to see blank spots all over the place on the web, but I dont. And on top of that Skyfire's flash is kind of a PITA. If you want to watch a flash video, it loads seperatly and from what I found when I had it on my phone (before Android brought over full flash), half the video's didnt even work.
its out in US now, hopefully UK soon!

BTW, here's what Jobs has to say about Flash: "Adobe’s Flash products are 100% proprietary. They are only available from Adobe, and Adobe has sole authority as to their future enhancement, pricing, etc. While Adobe’s Flash products are widely available, this does not mean they are open, since they are controlled entirely by Adobe and available only from Adobe. By almost any definition, Flash is a closed system." (Thoughts on Flash)
Seems just a bit hypocritical to me. I don't want to start a flame war here, but what's open about the App Store?
What does it matter if it's a closed environment it's seems at least a few people do not care. The fact that one has to pay for some apps in itunes does not concern me or millions of other users. I am fully aware of the open system that android and others offer and at the same time aware of the issues and problems users have on those platforms with support from developers. In my opinion I do not see why it is such a big deal if one has to pay for a printing app or any app for that matter that offers a third party solution to the iOS The choice is there regardless. It is obvious that a few people in this world enjoy Apple's so call closed digital store. Current facts are as follows as taken from recent articles.
Asymco says iOS users are currently downloading 17.6 million apps compared to roughly 7.5 million songs per day, on average. Currently worldwide Apple has approx 69% Of the digital Market.
I personally have absolutely no problem what so ever in using iTunes as a a main store for buying renting movies, subscribing to newspapers and magazines, purchasing songs, buying apps or download free apps plus books etc etc. I have no problem supporting developers of applications whom provide excellent support and upgrades in a timely manor. Having one store to provide all of the above makes accounting easy in tracking purchases, obtaining support if something does not work and more important offers a huge variety of product. Finally file sharing for me and again many users is not an issue Drop box works fine along with many other apps that provide similar features. Any thing I do on the iPad I can share or copy back to my MacBook but in saying that the only time I use my MacBook is just to provide back up and syncing with the apple tv and other iPod, iPhones and nothing else.
