    Hi Peter and welcome to the Forum.

    I also found it a wonderful place to be when I first got my iPad and it really is, as you can see I'm still here.
    We look forward to your participation when you finally get your hands on your iPad. I really do hope it comes today. Enjoy!!

    Good to hear from you. You’ll find a whole bunch of iPad enthusiasts in this Forum who are only too willing to help other iPad owners and to hear of their experiences. Don’t be afraid to post any questions you may have or use the ‘Search’ button near the top of the Forum web page. I usually find I discover one new interesting and useful piece of information about my iPad every day - and often not even what I was looking for!!

    Hope to hear from you soon with your thoughts about the iPad.

    Have fun and enjoy your iPad


    If you don’t already have it you can download a copy of the iPad manual for free.
