    This is the most interesting thing to me.... Because if this thing got jailbroken and people supported it like they do the iPhone... I'd buy it in a heartbeat.

    This thing will absolutely ROCK with Jailbreak!
    I hope we don't have to wait too terribly long.

    I'm undecided on wifi vs 3G.
    I've got MyWi on my iPhone for tethering, so I could get by with Wifi only, but I'm considering 3G just so I at least have the option. The fact that it's another month wait for 3G is also a factor. The temptation to get one ASAP may be too great;)
    I'm leaning toward just getting the cheapest base model at first, then going for all the bells and whistles for the next generation.

    Jailbreak on my iPhone does not make sense. My phone is factory carrier unlocked and couldn't be bothered.

    Jailbreak on this iPad thing, totally! I hope urgently they (1) jailbreak (2) tethering app to iPhone for 3G data.

    This thing will be ridiculously cool when jailbroken. I don't really like jailbreaking my phone (as if it's not buggy enough as a 3G with 3.1.2) but jailbreaking that thing would be siiiiiiick

    While I would never jailbreak my iPhone or iPod Touch, I will definitely consider jailbreaking my iPad, that is if I ever buy one.

    I don't understand Jailbraking technology, but could the fact that the processor is custom made play a role in making jailbraking more difficult?

    If you jailbreak your iPhone you can share its connection with the iPad using WiFi.

    I have a feeling that this thing will not be crackable.

    With the unlimited plan (if it is unlimited) I doubt Apple is going to let Jail breaking go easy this time... Because if I can have an unlimited plan on my iPad and tether it to my computer goodbye home plan! Apple won't let this slide but we'll see!

    Wow. My feeling were kind of mixed on this thing, but I didn't even think about jailbreaking. That changes my thinking a bit.

    It's been a long time since I jailbroke by iPhone (since the App Store, basically). Although mine is basically just an iPod now (couldn't keep up the family plan), it's still just a first gen, anyway, so tethering isn't really an option here. But the fun of getting under the hood seems more appealing with this thing.

    I just hope a bunch of developers don't abandon the iPhone/iPod Touch when they start writing for this device.
