1. Bento
2. Numbers
3. Pages
4. iBooks
5. Plants Vs Zombies
6. Flight Control HD
7. Fieldrunners
8 Comic Book Lover (hopefully)

I'm buying some eBooks too but really only Under the Dome to start.

The apps I want to buy (can't wait for my 3G to ship!):

- Pages
- Plants vs Zombies
- We Rule (probably free actually)
- Twitterrific (probably free too...)
- Bento
- Keynote
- Fieldrunners

More to follow I'm sure.

I'm getting two models- 32 gig Wifi and 64 gig 3g.

The apps I'm interested in are:

1. Numbers
2. Pages
3. Keynote
4. Omnigraffle
5. Brushes
6. Bento
7. MLB
8. Evernote (When available)

I'd also love to see some of the GeoDefense tower games ported to the iPad.

Also, if the iPad has the power for it (it probably does) I think it would be incredible if someone ported Homeworld to this platform.

1. MLB
2. Fieldrunners
3. Real Racing
4. maybe Touchgrind

Hopefully many of the games will have free trial versions because not many of them interest me at this point. I'm hoping there will be an iPad version of Scrabble and Baseball Superstars soon.

Also, definitely getting iBooks, but that's free.

Very nice. Does that offer AI play too? I kind of like playing against the computer in Scrabble as well.

Where are you finding the list of apps? The only ones I know of are PvZ HD and the Apple stuff.

I'll probably buy Keynote and Pages on day one.

For certain day one downloads:

OmniGraphSketcher + OmniGraffle
I'm also looking forward to iPad versions of:
Panelfly (or some other comic book app)
Things
Instapaper
SimCity
Articles
some sort of VNC
Autodesk Sketchbook
Cautiously optimistic about Coda for iPad and a few other work-related apps.
