I was going to buy one, but not at these prices. My brother-in-law is going to pick one up for me the next time he goes to the states.
I too am gutted with the price on this. However I will probably get one, play with it for 6 months, get bored and then try and sell it on.
I've told my wife that as Head of ICT in the school the pupils expect me to have the latest technologies :-)
:-) I just don't know yet.
I think I'll get one of these Archos 5 Android Tablet UMPC 32g solid state drive New on eBay (end time 04-Jun-10 11:20:02 BST) or these Google Android 7" Netbook Tablet PC UMPC MID 1.2GHZ on eBay (end time 09-May-10 16:21:15 BST) instead.
I'm getting one because I've opened my big mouth and now I'm being expected to produce some educational apps for it.....along with a host of other ideas. I still think it's going to be pretty big in education & training.
If I pre-order one tomorrow does anyone know when it would arrive? I'm assuming the shops would get them first and I'd get mine a week later. This information will help me decide whether I go to a shop to get one or order online.
I wonder if you can pre-order through the shops? That would be pretty cool.
How annying. A quick look at the Apple UK Education store this morning reveals no discount in price for the iPad. The cheapest is still £429 with free shipping. That's not fair :-(
Well I've got mine pre-ordered

I do think that 499USD=338GBP (U.S. price) vs 429GBP (UK price)is annoyingWait a minute?!?! Are you telling me that someone out there is charging more to sell something than what it costs to build it???? Holy capitalism!!!!! This can't stand!! How can these companies sleep at night knowing that they are making money off of something in order to pay for things like R&D, a living wage, advertising, employee benefits, expansion
