If I was Apple, I would have introduced it before introducing the iphone (big to small ). I have my iphone which I use more as an ipod, for Internet (it is like my palm laptop) and other application rather than a cell phone. I am happy with it and I don't consider enlarging the size of my iphone by getting the ipad which I am sure I will be using it for similar purposes as my iphone. If I didn't have my iphone, then yes, I would get an ipad
Lucky you I may pick one up soon. I have been waiting as I think it will be great as a reader. I just won't have the space anymore to store my hundreds of books, this way I can keep them all without using house space. I have a macbook pro, and an iphone, so it would be the logical way to go.
