If it can grab picks off a camera that means it will except any mass storage device. And that means it will be able to handle data thru a usb cable input...and seeing as how Apple just opened dev for the usb port for iphone accessories you will more than likely be able to add anything to it soon....how about a webcam that you just have to hold it upside down to use (remember it doesn't care about orientation.)
...participated back in March on this thread would come back and comment on their use of the iPad. And what do they think of the iPad now.
I bought my iPad for what I knew it could do, not for what I thought it could do or what features or capabilities I thought it should have. Therefore, I am just as happy with it now as I was the day FedEx rang my doorbell back in June.
One gripe is the syncing part, it would be nice to be able to drop a folder of files into my iPad from a sd card. Don't want to do programs just an easy way to access files.
Even though I chuckle a little when I hear new people on the list complain about the lack of Flash, there are a few sites that I really would like to be able to use Flash.
