What Xconomy Readers Are Saying About the iPad

4/1/10Follow @soonishpodcast

1. Are you planning to buy an iPad?



“If I am going to buy it it will probably be in a couple of years.”

“Waiting for the next, probably upgraded version.”

“It’s not yet (1) cheap enough, and (2) versatile enough to make the purchase. I’m not interested in being the Guinea Pig for this product.”

“I have way too many questions. Once they get answered, I will buy. I would like 3G but not with AT&T on board. I do not want to repay for apps.”

“The price point vs. the utility of this device makes me wonder who will [buy it]. I can only deduce that those buying it buy anything and everything Apple sells, or they think they should because others have given it a mark of ‘cool.'”

“Picking up three of them.”

“Not until multitasking and flash support are part of the package. So we experience the full Internet. Maybe version 3 or 4 of the iPad.”

“I’m interested in the 3G version, hoping to get some play time with a wi-fi one in the Apple Store between now and the next big release date.”

“Almost certainly will wait for the first [hardware] update.”

“As soon as it comes out in Canada.”

  1. 16-GB is the best choice. Mainly because the hotness factor will only last for 6 – 12 months. Newer models be better and cheaper. Anyways, who needs a 3G when 4G is coming up?

    I pre ordered at 32GB 3G iPad. I am an Apple enthusiast and I own just about every electronic item that they make. Being 66 years old, an avid Kindle reader, and a computer hobbyist, I really had a difficult choice. I wanted to get the iPad immediately but I knew I would eventually be upset that I didn’t have the 3G version.

    I will be using it as a GPS in my car and the golf course (have to get a mount for the car and golf cart). I actually will probably get rid of my iPhone and purchase a cheap cell to get my incoming phone calls and use a VOIP to make out going calls on my iPad.

    I guess I am going to have to wait it out and suffer without one.

    Impatient and waiting, Sandy Weiner
