    Very Impressed, It does what I thought it would and more, much more!

    Very happy.

    It is just the right size, sometimes I forget what I device I am on and think a web page is to small. Tell myself just reach up and resize it.

    I like the keyboard, not for writing war and peace but for emails etc...

    I would like some type of arrow key to move the cursor on typing though, trying to get your fat finger to go between two letters is hard.

    Battery life is just great.

    IBooks is great.

    Taking it on a trip next week and should work just great on the plane.

    The amazing thing is, this is version 1.0.

    Just like the iPhone, if you tap and hold on text you will get a little magnifying glass and if you then move your finger you can more accurately get it to the space you want. It works really well!

    I would really recommend the keyboard dock. I got mine Thursday of this week, and the points you brought up are all addressed with the keyboard.

    I enjoy using it, even though I also really enjoy typing on the inboard keypad.

    Same with my pickle fingers

    Yeah that would be nice to move back to correct w/o erasing along the way.

    I agree that it was indeed more, in my case, much more than I expected, as I pre-ordered pretty much on hype alone, AM I GLAD I DID!

    Happy camper here,
    :)

    +1 for the arrow keys

    +100 for the iPad. I was really not all that interested in it. Wife wanted one, and after I played with it a bit, I had to have one. Afte a week I am more impressed than I was the first day. I find it much more useful than I thought it would be. I like the keyboard except for the lack of arrow keys (the magnifier is awkward to use for simply moving back a space or up a line) and for some reason I hit the "n" key sometimes instead of the spacebar. I hope I am able to change that habit over time.....

    Anyway, I am very pleased with the purchase, and would buy it again in a heartbeat.
