I finally got one and love it as much as I suspected I would. I went for a ipad2 for now because I am looking to get a new car and they are $100 off. It really lives up to the hype, though. And after reading about the 3 I think I can hold off for the next one. We’ll see.
In the mean time I can now see how the sites I do look on tablets which will be the average persons computer very soon. There are already more mobile computers (including smart phones) than desktops. So as a web developer the writing is on the wall. You have to make your sites for both “mainstream” computers and mobile devices now.
I also want to use it to develop comics for digital format which as I have long predicted is where it going. Anyway, I love it!
