Me. I ask my friend to order one.
Did. We have two 64GB wifi/LTEs iPad3s in the family but I ordered a mini 32GB wifi only to use primarily as a reader.
If my Irish Wolfhound doesn't like you neither will I.
2012 13" MBA, 2011 11" MBA, 2010 15" MBP, 2 iPad3s, 1 iPad Mini, iPhone 4S and iPhone 5. A bunch of iPods and an Apple TV.
Preordered the Black 64 GB this morning... I will use it in conjuction with my iPad 3... will divide the load (in terms of type of activity) between the two. Hoping it will make a little more sense to try and take pictures (and NOT look like a dweeb!) with the mini! When I travel I also keep a blog of travel. I often take pictures with my iPad so I have ready access for my travelogue/blog uploads... hoping the mini will be less geek-like for this task. Always feel a little awkward taking photos with the iPad since it is kind of large...
I ended up ordering a white 32gb mini one for out and about use , had a nexus 7 for that but the apps I need to use for work are not compatible with it ,the ipad 3 is a bit heavy to carry about everywhere , for me anyway , got a two week wait now
I'm also wondering if the size will be such that it would make sense to use it as a secondary Nav and to play audiobooks and music on, instead of my phone. Yeah, the phone is with my all the time, but man it is small. Trying to do anything with it other than make/receive calls is just dangerous, in a car. I wonder if I can link two devices into my car's BT? Hmm.....

Disclaimer, I do not own an Android device--yet. But I have ordered Amazon's Kindle HD 32gig, 4G-LTE tablet. I've researched as much as I can about this device and found that for the most part, there is a comparable app available on the Kindle as on the iPad. So I would answer, you can build a decent library of Android tablet apps with an Android tablet.Originally Posted by thespinner
The follow on comment is, I am not going to get any additional Android app than what comes with the device out of the box. Ninety percent of the time, I am going to use this new tablet to consume media from Amazon and Netflix. I might set it up for personal email, bill pay, stock portfolio monitoring, breaking news, and weather. I will keep my iPads to do specific charitable, business, and work related functions.
After a couple of disappointing years trying to find good Amazon Prime video content, I'm enjoying the new additions there. Just watched Season 4 of Damages there - commercial free. After reading your post, I'm taking another look at the Kindle HD while I await the Nexus announcement. The Nexus does stream Amazon videos with the right browser but that is a bit too iffy.
OTOH, the Amazon video app works lovely on the iPad.
