Sorry , it may just be me but if someone I don't know asks to hold/take picture with my iPad my answer is no. I don't want them running off with it.
Right now there is a lot of iPhone thefts here right now. They ask if they can use your cell to make a call. You hand over your iPhone and they run off with it.
iPad is a hotter item then an iPhone right now.
Mike, I never let the device leave my hands. It is more about curiosity so far because the Ipad is not yet avaialble in Australia (only pre-order at the moment) people tend to becoem a little excitable when they see one in the wild. I suspect that it may become a little more unsafe to use in some public spaces once the are actually avaialble here at the end of the month.
I know that, as I'm still one of the few owners in Europe, who has an iPad already. I took mine the other day to an IBM sales event and almost got more attention with the iPad, than the poor sales rep from IBM.....
Enjoy the moments, they won't last long.... iPad will become a common view soon.
Truth. I live in boston and people are mugging on the subway for it. Well "certain" subway lines anyway
