I pre ordered the 16gb wifi + 3G from Apple. Yesterday I was able to pick up the iPad from Best Buy. Walked in and walked out in 5 minutes. After using the iPad all day yesterday I started to think about how it will actually function in my household. It wont be used all that much outside my own wifi network and when it does leave the house, a simple jailbreak of the iphone and tether will fulfill the 3g requirement. Also I noticed that 14gb (the actual space available) fills up REAL fast. I might wait until the next gen iPad or buy a larger model when the time comes. All in all, I'm happy with the purchase yesterday but think I will wait to see what happens in the product development before spending $600 - $800 on the iPad right now.
