I ditched my iPhone earlier in the year just b/c i didn't feel justified in paying the $30 data plan that i rarely used b/c i'm either at home, or at the university. Both of these places have wifi that i already pay for. So i got a cheap phone and saved $45 a month on the phone bill. Fast forward about 8 months. I miss an iOS device badly. I have an iPod shuffle to run with and a new Macbook pro, but i missed the touch screen interface and apps. I thought about waiting for iPad 2.0, but I've learned with technology if you wait around for the newest, all you'll do is wait. I made sure current iteration has everything I want, and pulled the trigger. I see people talking about the 4.2 update, but I still can't get over how slick it is right now. The bulk of use this week has been with Penultimate, the targus stylus, and doing dozens of physics and Diff Eq problems on it. It's perfect for being able to draw large diagrams, or work through long equations b/c you can erase your mistake where ever it is and start again. Plus, the convenient web browsing, form factor, and several other apps (ie Netflix so my g/f can watch "Say yes to the dress" w/o me, thank God). It really is a beautiful "media consumption device". To summarize, if you authored one of the dozens of threads titled "Should i wait for iPad 2.0", my answer to you is NO. Unless your are dying for a camera, but i personally have no use for it. To each his own though.
