    And me, If I wanted a jailbroken one I would have just got a laptop. I love the individuality and uniqueness of the Ipad as it is.

    But in all honesty, if it wasn't for the jb community would you have
    Folders
    Task switcher
    Apps running in backround
    Which is where these originated, apple just thru some polish on them to make pretty.
    And if you search YouTube for photoalbums+, mailenhancer & smartscreen to name a few.....these type of apps should have been in iOS from beginning.

    You make a very good point here, and one I have to concede!! To me, jailbreaking is like wandering through a mine-field, in the dark....I feel safe with Apple....

    (OK - I'm just a coward, there's no other word for it...:( )

    I respectfully disagree. I think these enhancements (or ones very similar) were always in the works from within Apple and that the JB community had very little to do with these changes. A company like Apple has a long term plan for their products. These changes are the fruition of those plans. I'm pretty sure that Apple surveyed users (or monitored certain forums) about what they may want to have as standard on the next generation or upgrade but you can be sure none of those surveyed admitted to being a hacker or JB'er.

    If I wanted to fool with stuff I would have purchased an Android based tablet. I enjoy stability at this stage and realize that nothing is perfect.

    I doubt that a jailbreak is in my future.

    I'm not bothering to try and change what works fine already. Admittedly the keyboard sucks without nav arrows, but I can use the wireless keyboard if I need to type long documents. I also downloaded other browsers, so hardly use Safari. Overall the iPad does what I want it to: movies, news, light Internet and email.

    I like the ipad the way it is and was designed to be used. There is a reason Mac creates the best OS and i dont want to do anything to change that.

    I agree. I'm pretty 100% positive that I will never jail break my iPad. I don't need to, and also I don't even know how :p

    I bought iPad2 3 weeks ago coming from an Android phone. I am only waiting for the jailbreak just to give a second chance to this thing before ebaying it. How can you people accept such limitations to something that paid 600 bucks for,in 2011? Still amazed.

    Limitations such as what? The ability to do what I need to do quickly and easily? That's the main 'limitation' that I've found with it. Just wondering what sort of limitations _you_ are finding.
