How is it the best at using the internet if it doesn't support something much of the internet uses?
...and the reports that the darn thing cannot even connect to the internet because of poor range of the wifi receiver. Next to the apple sheep praising the ipad, there a lot of posts about this issue.

While waiting for my 3G model, I went to the Apple store and played with the wifi version. It was smaller than I expected and heavy for its size, but built like a tank!

While nobody was looking I actually twisted and turned it trying to hear a crack or pop, no luck.

It's fast and the user experience was EXCEPTIONAL, I couldn't believe how easy it was to use with no physical inputs. I expected it to be just like a big iphone but it was much, much, much better.

Apple nailed it.

All you guys moaning about this and that, the reason Apple will win the battle (beyond massive marketing) is their software distribution model, which is already established. Nobody is going to be able to compete with that. Big media like Fox News and CNN have been all over Apple products, not one word about an HP tablet, wonder why? (hint: nobody cares)

My bank account is bigger than your bank account
My girlfriend is hotter than yours
I have more bikes than you do
My car is faster than yours
Now that, IS FUNNY!!!!!

But, it sounds like a profile of a person with a small penis to compensate

So how does it feel to have bought one of the first iPad's to only have Apple put out a version that is much better and has the bells and whistles a few months later.

So is the first iPad obsolete already?

So long and thanks for all the fish!

The new feature is the 3G capability. the first only had wifi, now you can use them anywhere that gets a celphone signal. Ibelieve the new one came out exactly 1 month after the first. 3G is what everyone that I know of was waiting for, now they have to go buy a new iPad if they want 3G.

So long and thanks for all the fish!

Oh, ok. Everyone was told about that before they bought the first one that came out. Anyone who thought they wanted 3g should have waited. That was even in the advertisement Apple sent out.

You can get the Sprint MiFi which is a small 4g receiver and WiFi router. Then you don't need to buy the 3g version of the iPad.

In fact Sprint has more or less been advertising this using the iPhone and iPad.

Actually I was just joking, but that could be pretty cool. I have the unlimited Spring plan so what's a little more eh?

exactly evo,

it was announced up front that the non-3g version was being released before the 3g version. It's not a 'new' version, it's the same version of IPad with 3G connectivity.

he iPad is not another general purpose computer. It's all about the iTunes ecosystem. Apple's audience is all those folks who are tired of di**ing around with windows, virus scanners, and all the BS that is Windows.
If it becomes popular enough, then the various delinquents will write viruses and malware for it. The only reason Apple can make claims that the Mac doesn't have virus problems is because there aren't enough of them around to make it worthwhile for the virus writers to waste their time. They'd rather make a BIG splash than just a splash.

Disagree there. I think virus writers do not writer virus (virii?) for Mac systems as they see MS as the big bad guy that needs to be taken down. Did someone not hit Mac with a virus once when they (Apple/Mac/Jobs) were bold enough to state that there could NOT be a virus written that could take down a Mac?

I love both my 3G and WiFi iPad models

I mainly use it for web browsing and entertainment media.

It's not made for everyone....only immature adults only

Dakine,

If you are looking to dump any wifi models because you are itching to get more 3g's then please 'dump' it my way
