Just a question, someone mentioned no tabbing in iPad, does that mean when I, while reading an ebook, quickly switch to checking my mails could not return to the same position in the ebook but would have to load the program again ?
You should be able to return to the same page, although you'll have to relaunch the app for now.

True multitasking is coming with OS 4.0, out in autumn for the iPad (at the bottom of the page).

Re: The Apple iPad

Thanks, that seems like a necessary update for me, even my old phone can do that! (S60)

Re: The Apple iPad

You can use skype on the ipad just like the itouch, the old application works and skype is supposed to come out with a new application for ipad so you can use it as a phone to communicate just no camera. A big itouch basically.

Re: The Apple iPad

What Wi-fi problems? I use at work where there is a B/G & A/N network (I connect to N). Use at home with G network.

Just name the networks different network names and use 2.4Ghz for slower nets & 5Ghz for fast.

...anyway, I've had since April 8th (ordered online, shipped from parents in the States via regular USPS & Poste).

Glad to have, happy I made the last minute decision to order online. Absolutely no buyers' remorse

A hatstand suggestion to use an iPad as a bicycle signalling device:

Re: The Apple iPad

You beat me to the punch. I was going to post a different link, but it was the same story about the same letter to Steve Jobs.

Re: The Apple iPad

The most interesting comment I've seen in all the media fuss about the release of the 4G iPhone pics is that if a new iphone has a camera for video chat then the 2G iPad must surely as well. So this could depress sales of the 1G iPad.

They're most likely grey imports from the US.

The first one I looked at stated it was a US import and the scarce details of the other one would assume the same.

I'll wait for them to "arrive" properly as I believe you can't DL stuff on the US ones unless you have a US credit card or something like that.
