    Do the words Sync in Progress mean anything?

    haha I'm actually watching my daughter for a bit. I'll probably dig into it after lunch. The downer is that I don't even have 3G where I live. I'm about half a mile from the signal though so anytime I head into "town" in covered.

    Yes they do.... that first sync does take some time. I received my 64GB 3G iPad from the FedEx guy about 20 minutes ago.

    It's still saying "Sync in Progress" It's a lot like watching grass grow or paint drying. Not really all that exciting so far. :D

    It does look to be a pain in the butt if you have a iPhone and a iPad because I don't want the same apps on both devices and don't want all my movies on my iPhone.
    I don't see a way to mark apps, music, photos, movies, etc so they go only on the iPhone or iPad. Did I overlook how to accomplish that particular task?

    Congrats to all 3G folks! Regarding iPhone/iPad syncing..... I have an iPhone, an iPad and my wife's iPad all syncing to the same iTunes on a netbook. There is no problem. When each device is plugged in, just go to each tab and choose what apps, music....etc. I do manual on the music, it's just easier...... Note that when you buy a new app on a device, it will show up on the other one the next sync, unless you uncheck it for that device.

    I like that picture; a basket of apples next to a box from Apple.:p

    A better layout for the picture would be to put the iPad in the basket with the other apples...

    I don't have a 3G..... But my WIFI is great on mine. There were a few that had issues, but most are fine. My wife and I both have one, and nave had zero problems. If you have one of the few that has problems, you should return it.
