I'm in no hurry - I expect I will wait until the 2nd generation. But I'm getting close to retirement and the dreaded downsizing - getting rid of my library. That means getting a Kindle or a competitor. But if I get an iPad, I could get rid of my laptop (we'd keep our Macs). I wouldn't need an iPod. My grandchildren love playing with iPads at the Apple Store. I'd still need to carry my reading glasses. I don't have an iPhone, as I'm not a customer of AT&T. And I don't want to add an other monthly phone fee. What would I be giving up or gaining with this monthly AT&T fee for an iPad?
