I bought my wife a new iPad 3 for no reason and she loves it.
She's used FaceTime for upto 3 hours a time and plays bingo every night (she's only 29).
I've posted a question in the iPad 3 forum regarding her cracked screen - we don't know how it happened, as it's kept wrapped in cottonwool.
I'll probably be the person browsing and asking questions as she expects me to know all the answer even though I only have an iPhone 4 - I'm not allowed on her iPad.
Hope to chat to you all soon, seems like a lovely forum here.
