Starting off on a six week, 6,000 mile road trip around America in early July. I have two small Internet businesses online so I need to stay in touch with clients and prospects.

An Acer Aspire One Netbook will be traveling with us, but it's use will be limited to hotel rooms.

The iPad 2 16GB WiFi I just bought will be our on-the-road device. I'll sign up for the ATT tethering on my iPhone4 for the duration of the trip so the iPad and my son's iPhone 3GS will be able to access the Internet that way.

In Alabama, I have a photography assignment set up; I bought the Camera Connection kit so I will be able to offload the images from SD cards and sort and share them with the client on the spot using the iPad2.

Hoping this all works... Any advice or similar experiences will be appreciated.

Everything possible!

From "lean back" couch surfing to industrial inventory management of course with my BlueTooth barcode scanner: Serialio - Scanfob(tm) OPN-2002 Mobile Wireless Keychain Barcode Scanner

Plenty of Flipboard use but that falls under the "lean back" sessions.

Some mobile Netflix viewing with my three year old.

Trying to integrate it more in to my daily work routine as its much lighter than lugging that nasty Dell laptop.

I got the Pacsafe VentureSafe 300 bag (slash proof with metal mesh wire in the bag construction) if your in a metropolitan crowd protect your investment from hooligans!
Pacsafe Anti-Theft Bags & Travel Security Products

Also have the Otter Box Defender case on my iPad 2 and its A+++

For everything connected with surfing the Internet and social networks (FB, Twitter), eBooks, video Podcasts, play games. Trying to draw with stylus, but its hard for the first time. Oh, and I like using device like a Photo Frame when it is not in use :)

I'm using my I pad for music it's cool how you can use it as a midi controller also using it to do my college work when I'm out of the house pages is a great app to keep on top of your word docs when out and about instead of having a laptop with me

All this talk

about reading books, I am older and I love turning on my tablet and listening to my books via audible.com

Now that is sweetness that is hard to touch, esp if the eyes are tired or you are on the road. So many times this is unbeatable for me. Not expensive either!:)

To my surprise, I'm using my iPad for pretty much everything - from reading the web, through marking assignments, to developing a Ruby on Rails app on my home server.
