i think that is even smaller than an ipad, however I'm doing my research, found nice things, but quite pricey!

How much cheaper do you expect an ipad to be by end of year?

$0 cheaper by the end of the year.

However, there might be deals on accessories with the purchase of an iPad...like this is doubtful but for example maybe something like buy an iPad and get half off the camera connection kit. I don't see any of this happening until it is available in more retail locations that are trying to compete for the sale though.

No, thats still smaller than ipad screen, and ipad is such a one piece product.

Have you heard o iped?
there is no spelling mistake here, and this name really makes me laugh.

Here's what you're looking for: http://www.archos.com/products/ta/archos_101it/index.html?country=us&lang=en

It won't be out til Octopber, but it's worth the wait since it will only cost $300 and it's a slightly bigger screen than the iPad. Plus for videos, it will be better because the screen has a wider aspect ratio than the iPad.

There really is no comparison at this point. You'd have to wait at least 6 months for competition to compare.

the ipads actually one of your cheapest options. just get the 16gb wifi version and youll have a product thats waaaaay more reliable.

I think you'd struggle to find any device with a 10" LED backlit IPS screen for the price of the base iPad.
