Works for me
My loyal iPad2, bought the day it appeared, just crapped out. This is a perfect replacement. I'll be ordering one promptly.

...on my 2006 Mac Pro. The machine refuses to die and still does the job. I didn't feel the new Mac Pro was right for me so I'll eventually go to an iMac, but probably not until next year when Intel's next generation chips are available. Unless, of course, Tim has a surprise in store for me.
The VDU would be 60 characters X 40 lines. Each character would have tiny windows in a 5 X 7 grid to spell out a letter or number. A small red flag would be mechanically moved in the appropriate holes to make each character. Perhaps compressed air would work best. Note: this will not be portable.
Aww... c'mon. I use a dodocase for my iPad2 or place it on a stand. If I had the new iPad, I probably wouldn't even notice the heat issue. I'm perfectly satisfied with my older model, though, so I won't find out until next year's model. I'm sure Apple knew exactly how hot it would run and realized that since people just have to find an issue, this would be a good one since it won't affect sales significantly.
I've had an iPad 2 for a couple of weeks and I couldn't disagree more strongly. I'm an old geek (my first computer was a TRS-80 Model III purchased in 1980). I have found quite a few uses for the iPad that simply would not work with another form factor. It's just a matter of imagination, and I've still got plenty of that - and lots of time to use it since I've been retired for years. It's always easy to criticize something you have no experience with...
I passed on the original because of the lack of cameras. When my next grandchild arrives in a few weeks, my daughter and I will each have one. The hospital has wi-fi. Worth the price of admission right there. Mr. Molloy is correct. it IS all about function. I've already selected quite a few apps I will be purchasing. This device (wi-fi only) has exactly what I am looking for.
The 3rd quarter ends in 143 days and HP doesn't even own WebOS yet. I do not believe they can bring a viable product to market in that time. The original rumor said "as early as" the end of Q3, but nobody is quoting that part. I do not expect an HP tablet in time for the holiday season this year even though they are probably working on it right now. There are all those nasty little details like getting a finished product to manufacturing, producing a sufficient quantity and, of course, FCC certification. At least we won't have to wait very long to find out.
