I use the iPad for my gigging music (beats carrying around 3-4 large 3-ring notebooks of songs) -- got a great "e-klip" device which fits on a mike stand and replaced the music stand --, photos, e-books, surfing the net, checking e-mail, etc. I've had it several months and bought it mainly for the gigging music.
Netflix, skype and FaceTime, travel light, rdc, anything with web, drop some photo, listen pandora, etc
surf net, facetime, read and send emails. do you know an application that allows me to use it for voice calls and sms?
I wish i could use it for everything, love the iPAD want to get rid of my laptop.
So far I use it for mostly web browsing, movies and music. I also respond to the occasional email. Just got google voice today so I can send SMS messages seems pretty cool so far, doesn't allow voice calls though.
I'm buying one to watch movies, Surf the WWW, Face time with my 7 year old Daughter on her ipod touch, Read forums, Games, youtube videos but the number one reason is for digital Comics. :D
I currently have an IPhone and Ipod Touch but they are too small for my comics.
I haven't gotten my Ipad2 yet, but I think I'll be using it for facebook, e-mail, listening to music, playing games, surfing the web, etc. Pretty much anything I can do on my laptop but with ipad it will be so much faster and convenient!!
SUBTRACT THE READING AND ARITHMETIC.
Writing, all day...all the time. I hope to find the perfect handwriting recognition and stylus on the first try. I got my apple keyboard ready.
Movies, music, games...making fun of people who are iPad A-list people!:D
