    I have it. But all I have noticed is the number box up top of the browser. Oh and the Game App.

    I have not played with much.

    Nope this one will be free. Subsequent ones may be chargeable but I doubt it would be much, especially if iworks apps are only $9.

    Wifi is more stable and i have found faster loading web pages.
    Battery life seems to be the same
    Folders are great
    Multitasking excellent just like iPhone
    Printing not implemented fully yet
    Email better than before
    Search function great safari

    "early edition"crashes and does not work only one I have found so far.
    most apps that can support printing will needed to be upgraded
    Cannot test air function as only have standard apple tv which I do not believe will be supported but to early to know.
    Over all every thing is great. No crashes except a couple of apps that will not work.

    Cheers col

    What is different about the email?

    Can you list new mail together? Can you show messages marked for followup together?

    This is a summary of what to expect in the new mail I have not tested every thing due to time issues.
    Unified Email
    One of the most notable additions to iOS 4 was its unified inbox feature, which allowed users to set up multiple email accounts and have them all located in one inbox – mixing business and pleasure has always, for some reason, been greatly lauded by the technology-minded.And in iOS 4.2 this feature will be transported to the iPad, so now Apple tablet users will be able to do the same.

    Other cool features, such as the ability to organise messages into threads and open attachments in third-party apps, are also present in iOS 4.2 for the iPad, which should really add a new paradigm to the email service on Apple’s tablet device.
