I'm sitting here at Disney world with my iPad 3G and must say I'm thoroughly impressed. I got it Friday as most new owners have and did a little wifi messing around. Certainly was impressed off the bat by that, but saturday morning I was off to the airport and activated my 3G service and have not seen an access point since that then. For some odd reason my service seems far better on the iPad than the iPhone. Download speeds for online video via safari is good, netflix is totally impressive, abc app is a pain of course since it's wifi only but it's a great app regardless. YouTube is a bit of a Joke with it's downscaling but oh well... My apps have downloaded quick and my web surfing has been quite snappy. Im plenty used to the speed on the iPhone so im pleasantly surprised at the 3G speeds on this. Anyone who thinks this is just a big iPhone is sorely mistaken. I can sit and use this thing all night whereas the iPhone is just a tool for when i need it. The iPhone has it's uses and the iPad has it's uses and to me I think they intersect less than I expected, in a good way. This (from the aspect of a traveller) is a great asset and will continue to be a constant travel companion.
