I'm learning Russian, thanks to an iPad app. Something I always wanted to do.
If you want to translate when you're on Skype, you could open Safari and set it to Google Translate. Now that there is the four finger swipe, it is really quickly to copy, swipe to safari, paste and translate, no? It is not perfect, but a fairly okay workaround.
I think people forget that Microsoft make Windows, but most of the stuff we use there is an add on from a third party developer, such as Google, Yahoo, Scrivener etc. in that way, Apple is no different, but because it is new to us, we just have to give it a little more thought.

Can you use it as an USB storage? With 64 gigs, it's a reasonable request. What if you want to transfer some file to your social/business pal's comp if they don't have itunes or give you network access? To me, this is a huge drawback.

So I'm stuck with still not having music on my toy, whereas with Android I just attached the USB cable to my Linux comp (since ANY comp supports USB storage) and copied my 8 gb playlist in a matter of minutes. Still wondering how to accomplish this task with iPad and Linux - no way, probably.
It does not have microSD support, so you can't backup your main storage on-the-fly, wich I did seamlessly on a now 10-years-old Palm device. So you MUST sync your iPad with some external device over some sort of connection with some sort of software running.
MicroSD support also carries along an additional benefit: shouldn't you have an Apple USB cable at hand, you could always take the MicroSD out and put it into whatever computer.
Additionally, which office suite do you use? I had to buy-and-try three (no refund, guys, sorry) before I resolved to the expensive one I'm using now. On Android it come preinstalled, and works pretty well too. And if I want to play around a bit before taking a decision, I can get a refund.
Can you attach files to email out of the box? No.
Does it have keybord cursor arrows? No, just the finger-lens, which is nice but often less quick than plain old arrows. Ever tried to edit a long structured document with only finger-lens? I tried and still have nightmares at night
Ever tried to insert long series of numbers without a numeric keypad? How'd you feel?
I keep all my contacts in sync with google mail, which almost every client device can connect to. I have some 300 contacts, and it took half an hour with an iPhone app for the iPad to sync all of them. Of course it's not automatic nor incremental (as far as I remember) so I'm supposed to rerun it from time to time. This is not good for business too.
As I said in another post, I can't copy and paste text from skype to a comp translator - or to any other app.
In a nutshell, it can be used for business to a limited extent (I've seen similar complains from other users), but for its pricetag tis is simply not acceptable for me.
Hy Info/junkie , thanks for your compliments.

About GoodReader, I understand that it's sort of an universal reader, of does it solve the attachment problem? Can I write an email and on the spotmdecide to attach something, which is such a common thing that Thunderbird even pops up an attachment request if it sees the word "attachment" in thentext? Do I have file preview, at least for images? Or should I decide beforehand which files I have to attach, select them and then select "share with"? Does GoodReader access other apps' files? Or just its own whithin his "sandbox"?
Thanks for your help
That works fine for me as long as I can copy text from a Skype chat.

Thanks in advance
Goodreader is not able to reach outside of it's sandbox to reach other files, no program can do that unless you want to deal with the problems of jailbreaking (even then, I don't know if you will be able to approximate the functionality that you are hoping for). However, you can use it as a file manager of sorts and files that are placed in Goodreader can be easily be attached to an email. Put it this way, everybody buys Goodreader, it's part of the discovery process.
