    Hi everyone,
    My husband gave me a new 16GB 3G iPad for Christmas. I also have an intel iMac, a MacBook and an iPhone 3G so was trying to justify an iPad when he made the decision for me. So far I'm loving the iPad, using the WiFi mainly, but I tethered it to the iPhone successfully today. This has saved getting a 3G plan (got to save money somewhere).

    We are retired and travel a lot in our caravan and sometimes overseas so the iPad should be a light travelling companion. I just used FaceTime to speak to my daughter's iPhone 4 much to my little granddaughter's delight. I've also downloaded my first book which is for Book Club this month and should help with the overflowing book shelves in my house. I just keep finding more and more things to do with my new iPad.

    You got a wonderful gift there from your husband and I am sure you will find more and more things you can do with your iPad.
    I got one from Mr. Manou for my birthday last year and wouldn't want to be without it.
    I am a (somewhat mature :)) university student studying Chinese and use my iPad as my main learning tool learning to write Chinese characters and memorising them. Thanks to all the intenational keyboards I am also able to do most of my homework and assigments with it as well.
