    Just got a 32GB black wifi iPad 2 and wanted to share my impressions, having never owned an Apple product till now.

    - its gorgeous. Besides the design, you just don't know how good IPS screen is till you've used it

    - I don't have any paid apps yet. At first I was a little bit concerned that there's much less free content than for Android, but managing so far.

    - some of the non-obvious things - Gmail account must be setup through Exchange, not via Gmail, otherwise contact sync etc doesn't work.

    - AppShopper app is much better than the AppStore since it lets me filter easily and is also faster

    - I absolutely love iBooks !! Android has no comparable pdf reader. I only have a few epub books, mostly use it for pdf now. Why would I need a paid reader like GoodReader?

    - iOS is just so smooth and polished. Again its one of those things I didn't appreciate till actually using it, like all the little animations in the UI.

    - My phone is an Evo 4g (which is 4.3", pretty bi screen). Yet after using the iPad it feels tiny and inadequate

    - now for some bad news - wifi on iPad is much less reliable than my other devices. e.g. it won't let me stream video without stuttering even though I have a N router.

    - I'm reading a lot more news due to the great news apps on iPad. It may end up making me smarter

    - I can't jailbreak it due to newer firmware which I wanted to do. Looking forward to iOS 5

    - Haven't bought any accessories yet. The screen is a fingerprint magnet, I at least need a screen protector.

    - and finally, I recommend buying on a Fri so you have the weekend to play with your new toy!

    I also jumped on the iPad bandwagon and I'm glad I did! I bought the 16G wifi version and have filled it up with 2GB worth of apps. No music or any other type of media as I stream everything off my desktop. Works great when on the home wifi but not so great at the moment when connected to the Verizon 3G network. Which is why I had no intentions of getting the 3G version because I'll be able to upgrade my phone later to much faster technology and tether it to the iPad as I am doing now.

    Welcome to the iPad family, I too have owned a Motorola Xoom in addition to my iPad 2 and have to tell you that I think the iPad 2 is just works better than Honeycomb IMO.

    I just got my White iPad 2 a few days ago and its so awesome. I think the reason Apple is the number 1 tablet maker is because of how smooth iOS feels. I can definitely notice a difference with the dual core processor. Love it!!!
