Finally got one. Open box at Best Buy so thankfully I can return it without the restocking fee.
It is too heavy. I will buy the Kindle 3 now and maybe later buy a new iPad that has shed half its weight.
Will return this next Friday. If anyone can tell me a way to hold this without your wrists falling off I would like to know. Having things under it makes the screen too flat and hard to see.
My hopes are dashed. Thanks for listening.
