Watching videos, reading books, and occasionally doing simple internet related things like checking email on a really thin device with a battery that lasts forever sells it for me. All the apps, games, etc come handy after the fact and just add to the appeal.
My iPad is almost constantly around. While I'm playing Dragon Age on the computer, if I have a question about a spell, I go to the iPad sitting next to me. If I'm watching a movie and recognize an actor but can't remember where I've seen him or her before, I pick up the iPad and check IMDb. If I need to look something up on Wiki I use the iPad if I'm not at my desk. If I'm bored at a doc's appointment, or sitting in a waiting room of any kind, I use the iPad to watch a movie or play a game or anything. If I'm traveling I use the video player almost non-stop. If my wife is home we might do a crossword together or play a game of scrabble in bed before we go to sleep. If I have to take a crap, I take the iPad with me in the morning and read the news via my RSS feed app.
That's the value I place in it.
That a perfect review. That right there is what makes the iPad so great that it's always there to be at your assistance no long boot just direct connection.
And one thing about flash i have it on my nexus one its fun but you it's not a make a break people just complain cause they cant have it. It's cool but again apps make the iPad. Simple as that
Return it my friend and i bet you'll miss it!
