    My iPad is on order, so I'm looking forward to exploring here until it arrives and thereafter.

    I'm a techie by profession, but hadn't planned on buying an iPad. Earlier this week I was at SAPPHIRE NOW--the large international trade show for companies that use SAP to run their operations--and iPads were everywhere. After seeing it used as a part of the keynote presentation by Hasso Plattner, that pushed me over the edge to order one.

    I ordered the 64 gig version with wifi and 3G. I've also already ordered a case from Vaja.

    I've been using an iPhone since last summer when I switched from many years of carrying a Windows-based smartphone. Given that I rarely use it for making calls, but use it almost continuously for email, apps, etc., I think an iPad will suit me just fine.

    Looking forward to becoming part of this community.

    Welcome! The iPad explodes on Europe on Friday and we're all anxious.

    I'm also a WinMo -> iPhone convert. Did you say it can make calls? Hm, I'll have to check that out :D

    Though I do get annoyed, coming from the WinMo platform by the closedness of the iPhone platform.
