Hi & G'Day! I recently - after much forethought - bought an iPad2. I confess I was originally holding out for a Kindle DX as I like to read some. I knew the iPad could run the Kindle app but was worried about the battery life. Anyway I bought the iPad, got the Kindle app & also found you can run the iBooks app, so this gave me more ebook options! What I do like most is the portability of the iPad when I want to check my email or surf a little.....so now I feel I've actually ended up getting more than what I was looking for............so I'm happy!! Even after some good tips from my daughter I am still having some small problems with the software & some of the settings so I may ask you guys for some help.....Thanks in advance!!
