Am considering getting an ipad. hoping to put it off til 3g in 4/11. Meanwhile I'm spending a loy of time in various forums soaking up info and taking notes. Have decided on the bag, am almost decided on a case; all of which will probably change in the next eight months. My friends have a po;; going as to when I'll break down and buy one. Only one person has me lasting till Christmas, no one else had me lasting pasr Columbus day. I do love my gadgets. Hoping that the new itouch will help hold me back. The fact that flash isn't available also makes it easier to hold back.
