Should anyone be surprised that the iPad ($500) is on this wish list? I love Apple products, I want an e-reader and have been holding off purchasing a reader/iPod/smart phone. The product that I had been waiting on was cancelled so the choice is really between the iPad and Kindle. Full-sun readable eInk vs. full color and Apple apps. I wouldn’t get the 3G option because I don’t want to be dependent on AT&T.
I’d write more, but I think enough people have expressed their desire for an iPad that we should just assume it’s really neat and move on. (OMG it’s so pretty! And SHINY!)
