I waited a while to purchase this 16 GB iPad and then couldn't find one anywhere in Michigan when I decided to pull the trigger. These things are scarce around here. I'm using it with a Verizon MiFi. Here are my impressions, just mere months after everyone else has given you theirs. Positives: Web: Amazing. Clarity and ease of use are unparalleled. eReader: I have Kindle, iBooks, and B&N installed. I'm not too picky and they all get the job done with different selections. I like being able to choose from any of them rather than being tied down to one store like I'd have to be with a Kindle. Calendar, email: Great versions of these tools. Better than on a desktop. Negatives: Awkward: no comfortable way to hold it or type. Seriously. I'm sick of just typing this. Movies: What a hassle. Why can't iTunes format my movies for my devices. I have them syncing with my Apple tv, iPhone, and now iPad. I want to load some and go when I'm about to catch a plane but iTunes won't let me. Also, the quality looks horrible next to how clear and crisp other apps are. Apps: for me, the app store is about 200,000 crappy apps and like three good ones. This is the app store as a whole, not just iPad. I have not played one single game even compares to 8 bit nintendo games in gameplay. Yes, I'd write more but this thing is horrible to type on.
