    I don't have one yet...does it have built in sound or do you have to use headphones, or ear buds? I watched all the tutorial videos on the itunes site and they never mention speakers on the iPad.

    The iPad does have built in speakers, earphones are not required.

    Thanks

    I have never seen an iPad in person so I didn't know about the speakers. I am thinking about getting one...but would like to see what hardware changes may appear if I wait til next year to get one. :ipad-front:

    Why are you thinking of getting one? I would assume you have identified some requirement or need. If so, just list all you think you need from it and if it fulfills them all then buy one now - no need to to wait for features you may never use. It's a great device.

    The iPad has decent speakers for what it is. I often listen to it instead of my car radio or in situations where there is nothing on broadcast radio stations. What is missing at this time, is speaker docks like for the iPods. That should be changing soon. The first models are already on the market.

    The speakers on the iPad are really good considering it's size, however, when I want a little bit more I hook mine up to my bluetooth speakers, works a treat.

    One thing with regards to speaker docks and the iPad is to get a cheap bluetooth receiver that fits in the docking port on the speakers. This way you can use any ipod speaker dock with the iPad over Bluetooth - the one I got was called FIPO and around £10 delivered a while ago.
    The alternative is to get an extender cable with male to female ipod connections which will allow you to connect to a dock - just be sure you get a cable that supports audio and not just power/data.

    I agree, bluetooth speakers are best for prolong listening. I always carry my spracht BT speakers with me on trips. For listening in hotel rooms the iPad built-in speakers don't cut it.
