Just some examples that matter to me: It takes too long, doesn't charge while syncing, and requires tethering my device to my pc instead it being autonomous.
- It takes too long,
- The iPad doesn't charge while plugged in, and
- Tethering means the iPad isn't autonomous.
Well, if you use wireless sync, then:
- It will likely take longer,
- The iPad still won't charge, and
- The iPad still won't be autonomous because it will still require the PC to be on for syncing.
So what was the point again? Oh yeah... a reason to complain. Got it.

It is unfortunate that you've taken this combative tone and assumed that I have nothing better to do than pay hundreds of dollars for a device so that I can complain on a message board. Otherwise, we might have a productive conversation.
Maybe you're having a bad day, today, and we'll have that productive conversation some other time. I don't know, but I am going to fight my knee-jerk reaction and just wish you a good day.

Ease of use
I love the ease of use, the screen size, the whole touch screen feel, the apps that have come out for it so far are pretty good. Love the updated OS compared to what's on the iPhone right now.
I don't like the fact that took the weather app out and the calculator app. I use those quite frequently on my iPhone and which it was on the iPad as well.
Back to the things I love:
the iBook app the store is amazing but wished the prices were a few dollars less.
The upgrade to the iPod
The calendar upgrade
The ABC app. CBS where are you??

So far I am very happy with my iPad. I was originally skeptical and was not planning to buy it; I have an iPhone 3GS and was having a hard time justifying the cost. But after checking it out at an Apple store I was amazed at how much can be done on it. Sure if you need hardcore capabilities (i.e Photoshop, complex spreadsheets) it may not fit your needs. But for just casual web browsing, quick emails, games, books, this is a cool device. I was considering the 3G but I utilize this much like my laptop; I use it while watching sports at home on the couch or at Starbucks. For me, it didn't make sense to spend the extra bread on something I won't utilize. The only dissappointment for me if I had one is the inability to easily print from the device. I was really hoping this may be a laptop replacement but it really can't be as you really have to be able to sync it with something.

I like it! Can't really see any deal breakers yet, but Pages does have a few kinks in it. I didn't expect it to be a laptop replacement - but maybe a really large pumped up iPod touch. For those of us who are blind as a bat, the bigger screen helps. It's a great web browsing and e-reader device, which was what I was hoping for.

Oh - one thing...and this might be a stupid comment... I wish there were other means for data synching. I wish I could just load a document on the pad via USB rather than loading it through iTunes and synching it via Pages. Maybe there will be some sort of adapter sold soon.

I received my reassurance email from Apple that my 3G iPad will still be shipping "late April", so I'm looking forward to browsing the web on a larger screen when I'm laying in bed. I usually use my iPhone for this task -- rarely does the MBP come out anymore for just surfing due to its size and heating properties

I think the iPad's arrangement makes more sense than the iPhone's, but after using the iPhone for almost 2 years, I guess I've just gotten used to it.

I'm I Happy?...
Well,after I got got my 2nd one I was. I had my premier one for two days until I tried to run a video and it froze after a couple of minutes. I took it back,started another video that froze after about 10 seconds in front of one of our Geniuses and got another one that seemed to be frost proof!

I just got the 3G version. It was a lil shaky for a while, there, and I'm still annoyed that iTunes and a computer are so essential to using the device, but we're off and running, now, with AT&T.
It's worth the thirty bucks just to know what the thing can and cannot do.
I may tell the tale of Best Buy's screw-up, later. Later.

An amazing device!
A lighting internet browser. Great for viewing photo images. A convenient portable library for eBooks, User Manuals and other Tech References.
My initial unit stopped charging after 10 days but the Apple Store provided a quick exchange.
