I'm thinking about getting an iPad, but don't want to get the most expensive one. I'm thinking of maybe buying an iPad (1st generation from Amazon on eBay), as I don't really need any of the new features or extra space with the iPad 2 or iPad 3. I want a device that I can use to read eBooks that is displayed in color. At the moment I am using the Amazon Kindle 3 for eBooks. Its a good device and I love the kindle store's variety of books. I was going to get a Kindle Fire (which is color screen), but its not available outside of the US. Amazon will only deliver to US residents. Another thing that attracts me more to the iPad is the fact that I can run the Kindle app, and use iBooks at the same time. I've priced the iPad First Gen on Amazon and eBay both sites rage from around 200 for an iPad (which is a good price). But the only thing I'd be concerned with is if future updates of Kindle and iBooks apps will pretty soon not support the original iPad. Or perhaps the iPad firs gen will suffer the same face as the iPhone 3 and its previous models which was that all updates of these devices ceased. Would I be best to actually get an iPad 2 instead for the sake of being able to guarantee the chances of software and app updates?
