ok i read the ongoing thread about the calculated guesses re the price.. i am not great at this stuff, so please dont start slating me .. i want an ipad for my 6 year old sons birthday its march 29th. ( he alreaady has an ipod touch, so knows how to use it and can punch in my itunes password to help himself to apps !!) do i have any other options other than pay out whatever apple want for it here or persuade me friend in the usA to post me one also re the wifi 3g.. clearly the 3g version isnt going to be out in time for his birthday, can i plug a ( albeit ugly) dongle in the side for him to use at school? ok again please dont slate me. I am just trying not to pay over the odds, but always end up getting a crap deal buying macs, macbooks, iphones etc just before the price drops..
