Only gripe: flash!
I changed my mind -- USB and expandable storage would be rockin'. I'm not so much missing Flash but I can see how the USB/SD card would help tremendously.
Flash seems to be the biggest bugbear for most people. For me though its not that important. I find there is very little I need to do which simply must have Flash. In fact the lack of it does remove some very annoying animations (adverts mostly) from some of the newspaper and blog sites i frequent.
I really don't understand the call for expandability regarding memory or storage. I store almost all my documents and files on iDisk (other cloud storage products are available). My music is stored on the iPad and I have a lot of apps and I still have over half the memory available.
So, my only bugbear really is that the pad is a bit heavy for an e-reader. I have the Kindle app, but have found myself returning to books simply because they are in a better format for reading in bed.
Flash used to be important to me but more and more sites have started to offer html5 and some like my favorite tv station (Radio Canada) have an app that allows to watch episodes of tv shows old and new. It's in French but the tou.tv app is very well made.
Sent from my iPad using iPF
Try= Tv catchup .com follow iPad link, it shows a lot of tv but depends on your region
Other issues: speaker needs more volume, and I forgot to tick no USB port, am guessing next generation will prob have! And ITunes needs some work, I hate the way the synch has repeatedly wiped my music and photos and I have to reload them! Default should be manual synch.
Flash support would always have made the iPad much more likely to crash when you were surfing sites with flash because flash consumes more memory than is available on the iPad.
I prefer a more stable experience.
Works brilliantly for me.
Safari. It loads websites slow (often over 15sec), and once it finishes loading the browser jumps back to the top instead of staying where it currently is.
It's just the way people use the iPad for surfing: I've never really missed or noticed the absence of Flash because the few sites which I use the most don't utilize it at all.
