My introduction: Me: I am a new member but an experienced computer user and frequent early adopter, with scars to prove it. I enjoy forums for tapping the knowledge of other users and sharing mine when its helpful and non-repetitive. iPad/iSlates Used: I am now buying my first iPad, but I have used an iPhone since they were released. I now have a 4, waiting for a 5. Actually, I bought an original iPad for my son one when they were released, and have used it occasionally, mainly to help him with various issues. I used Windows Tablets for several years, including a Motion slate. Other Devices Used: I also use a MacBook Air, again since first released, and now own the current generation. I'm an operating system agnostic, using (or having used) Windows 7 and OS X Lion devices, as well as Android and Windows Mobile phones. I primarily use iPods now but have used a Zune and other devices. Cell Providers Used: I use both Verizon and AT&T -- I often travel domestically and frequently find one usable and the other not. I occasionally travel overseas and rely on an unlocked AT&T phone. I've used a Verizon MiFi or variant for many years and am on a grandfathered 3G unlimited data plan. Over the years, I've also had T-Mobile and Sprint phones. I look forward to participating in (probably mainly learning from) the forum.
