I watched my first Netflix movie on my iPad today and I thought it was amazing and it barely touched the battery. I am just so impressed. I agree that my iPhone, which I used to think of as a nice big screen, now looks and feels so tiny! I love this thing.

i started doing the same thing with my iPhone. Just focus on getting as close as possible and not worrying about mistakes because it seems like the OS catches and corrects all the mistakes I ever make! Thats why I love typing on my phone versus my crappy BB Storm I got rid of this past summer!

Hello, I am writing from Spain, is my first post here! I went to New York among other things to buy the IPAD, great, just that I have problems with synchronization between outlook and calendar of the IPAD. My operating system is windows xp. I've reinstalled itunes 9.1 and restored the IPAD but the problems remain. Leave some appointments and erroneous dates. Any idea how to fix it? Thanks in advance and sorry for my bad english!

My iPad exceeds my expectations.
So far, after only three days, I am really surprised at the way the iPad simplifies the user experience. Without a detailed manual or startup instructions, almost anyone can immediately start using the iPad with little difficulty.
I did however, discover that the "Settings" (Settings Icon) should be addressed and answered before attempting to do some of the higher level functions such as mail management, photo management, music uploads, etc.
I think that many other similar products from other manufacturers will hit the market in the near future. We will all gain by the rapid development of these great new devices.

No, exchange is simply the type of account you choose on the ipad when creating your account.
You'll enter in your google account info per the directions. You don't actually need exchange or all that.
But once you've completed entering the info, you'll get "push" email, contacts, and calendar from your google account. That means, enter a contact on your Pre, it'll be pushed to your ipad...and vice versa.
Try it...you'll like this..

I am less happy with it by the hour.
There is a lot that is missing or inconvenient or apparently designed with the Apple-faithful in-mind.
I spend too much time wrestling with wifi (getting worse the more places I go) and dealing with, not just the painful lack of multitasking, but also the lack of workarounds to help us cope with the situation.
Every time I install an app, having to swipe twice to get back to the main screen, then click the App Store icon, then wait on it to load, THEN note how it did NOT return me to the exact spot I was in before so I will have to navigator my way back there to install the other apps in that section... I get a little more pissed.

Waiting impatiently for the 3Gg model. Apple simply does not understand my need for instant gratification! But wait I will. Plan to order it online this week. Stopped by the Apple Store to play with the iPad, loved it, gotta have it. No really. I am great at convincing myself that it is not a matter of 'want' but a matter of 'need'. Hope to respond to the poll soon with a 'yes' I'm happy with my iPad!

Debating whether to keep it or not.
Working with documents between the various apps is a pain. Printing is a problem. Browser is awesome.
I really want this to replace my laptop but I can't find enough work arounds to do it. It's mainly used for games or browsing at home at this time. When I'm out and about, I'm finding that I go for the iPhone more often this the iPad. Which is bad considering I paid $700 for this thing.

Then there's the time spent having to sort through ipad apps, iphone apps, universal apps, converting video to ipad res, storing videos for iphone, ipad and in original resolution.

I have only had a few minor instances of WiFi giving me trouble.
Other than that it has performed quite well for me. Pretty much replaced my MacBook.. I'll probably end up selling my less than a year old MBP and simply use the iPad as my carry to class device and a iMac as my at home computer.

Damned iPad refreshed the screen before I posted, apparently. Lost it all.
Long/short: Not being able to use the iPad until you sync it to a computer. Serious buzz kill. Sorry, 90's flashback.
For that matter, the way that iTunes syncs, not to mention it's sad, wired necessity, is a gigantic pain.

* - since there is no way to have the iPad automatically download new podcasts OR EVEN initiate an "update all" feature, either I download all of my podcasts manually on the device, at the various and inconvenient times that they're available, or I sync with iTunes.
It is a pain.
