On this day, where Amazon announced that eBooks are now outselling hardcover books, we thought it was appropriate to demystify the iPad for those who haven't already picked one up and put it on Craiglist.
There are other eReaders available, and mostly the eBooks you buy can be transferred across eReaders, but the others aren't internet enabled and don't have access to apple's industry-leading app store.
It's worth investigating, particularly as Amazon have just announced that the Kindle online books are now outselling traditional paperbacks.
The device lends itself to managing multiple electronics such as a conference room digital input manager or home network manager; it could even work well as a handheld video conferencing device if it was manufactured with an inbuilt camera. But no, we'll have to wait until fan bois and early adopters have helped apple recoup the set up costs buying iPad 1.0 before there's a version that will tick more boxes for us professionals to need.
