I feel like I am in such a conundrum. I am a huge apple fan. I love all of their products. I have an itouch 1st generation and a few macs. No phone because I get one from work (Blackberry). I love the cool factor of the ipad and was really planning on the 3g so I would not have to carry my macbook pro when I travel. My kids keep telling me but dad you won't be able to video chat with us when you travel for business. In the meantime I see that the iphone now next gen will have a camera which means that the next gen ipad should also have one too. In (not that I think I would get anything but apple) I am reading that android will have a pad and there will be many others out there. Maybe cheaper and less locked down. Still I am caught up in the hype, I think it is really cool and will help me to spend less time on the computer and more time on the couch. Easier to travel with at the airport etc. So you see a Conundrum that is also $650! Can't decided if I should get one now or...wait until generation 2. (Probably about a year away). I am curious to know if anyone else has the same debate and how you rationalized it or passed on it.
