    first of all, I am a new and proud iPad owner <3

    secondly, i was wondering which orientation everyone else uses.

    I have mine locked in landscape with the home button on the right. it never leaves that orientation. I just don't like using the portrait orientation.

    what about you?

    The great thing about the iPad is that everyone gets to choose which orientation they like best. Personally I like reading in portrait mode, but if I am typing something, landscape works better for me because it gives me a larger keyboard.

    Of course, YMMV!

    I generally stay in portrait but what I really like on the iPad is the orientation lock

    I should probably use portrait more...

    I just feel like landscape uses the screen real estate much more effectively. meh, it's just a personal thing. no need for debate :p

    But then there are also some apps (thankfully very few) that do not rotate so you have to use them in the orientation they were made for.

    I love both, but I use landscape much more often.

    depends massively on what I'm doing - the flexability is one of the things that makes the iPad great.

    I use it mostly in landscape mode for everything except reading books. I like reading in portrait mode almost always.
