Having queued (but only for 90 mins) for an iPad 2 on Friday and used it a while, I have generally positive feelings about it. There's lots to like about the hardware but I think the software (iOS) still needs a few key features. It seems to me that the iPad should have the facility for different user accounts, at least in so far as email and mobile me are concerned. In our household, there are two people and one iPad.....Since you can't set up different iCals and email profiles, neither of us are using it for this. I thought we might be able to at least go to me.com and check mail and iCal stuff that way but Safari diverts you to an Apple page that prompts you to set these things up on your iPad. The iPad needs a file system. I know Apple are trying to think outside the box with "Post PC" devices but seriously, if you want to do anything other than consume content and buy a steady stream of apps, you need a better way to manage saved files and data. You can't encourage an eco system full of productivity and creative apps but then hobble it with a hackneyed system of exchanging files via iTunes or Dropbox. I also think the iPad 2 needs more "Pro" apps. Garageband is OK, but very simple and limited if you've used apps like Logic. I know it's aimed at a certain target audience and you can't have an application as complex as Logic on the iPad but there's a huge chasm between the capabilities of both. Sequencing beats is very limited in GB, and as far as I can tell there doesn't seem to be a way to edit recorded keyboard riffs to fix wrong notes or timing. The iPad 2 has a decent amount of processing power and could go so much further in acting as a device for creatives to capture ideas quickly on the road but it's held back by Apple's reluctance for it to compete with their laptops. The iPad 1 was lightweight enough hardware wise for that distinction to remain intact but with the beefing up of specs in the iPad 2, the user expectation for what you can do with it has risen, at least for me.
