So, are you going to get an iPad? Are you heading down south earlier than the Canadian launch like with the original iPhone or are you going to wait?

    Actually, there's no way in hell I'm going to buy this highly limited piece of junk.

    $500 for a pumped up iPod Touch? I don't think so. Once they go down in price and up in functionality, maybe.

    Not interested in the (max)iPad!

    I really hope Apple bombs on this one and people don't buy it. They could have easily made this device more functional, but I would surmise that the logic being employed is to be able to stagger upgrades over the course of two or three years with the intention that they entice people to buy the latest versions….even though these versions include features that should have been on board from the beginning.

    I will probably wait for Wi-fi + 3G version.
    Since that will give more value for my money ….
