    No - not one of those threads.

    While I myself am not finding an immediate need for an iPad - I can't deny that there are some that will actually benefit from having one beyond it being a luxury item.

    I am speaking of those who have medical conditions which would render a regular keypad useless.

    The size and touch ability of the iPad makes it perfect for stroke victims who have lost their speech to communicate.

    Anyone with limited mobility in their hands/fingers as well

    And as others have said - children learning to read. And special needs children who might have trouble with regular keyboards and such.

    Right on, my mom works with handicap people, many of them often use something similar to a Franklin Speller, an iPad could very easily replace this, at a slightly cheaper cost. Although you lose some durability and also make them a bigger target for theft.

    Well I would think that in these cases - the ipod could be mounted in a sturdy frame. Something that would be hard to knock over/protect it.

    For this usage - I don't think "thin" is a concern - but having the large real estate to press. Think of a big rubber bumper behind and all around to lock the iPad in.

    ...anyone looking to buy future generations of Tablets. As the iPhone did for Smartphones, the iPad will push other companies to improve.
