Honestly, I think I will use it mainly as an eBook reader and also as a mobile internet tablet when you just don't feel like getting out the whole laptop... ie, on the couch.
Second to that, on plane flights as a movie platform it will be nice as the screen size is great and the battery life will beat even my 17" Macbook Pro.
All in all, there are a few neat uses for it but mainly those 3 for me.
What about you?
I raised my fingers to type and saw you wrote exactly how I plan to use it. The fact that it doesn’t natively support SMS/TXT makes it a glorified Kendle. The only reason I ordered one was for a 30-days travel jont to Florida and onward to Italy, otherwise I would have waited until iOS5. As it is, those flights in coach glass are more painful than listening to our leader talk.
