I just spoke with my Dad (a computer/engineering software Guru) and he was sent a review copy of a Droid version of the iPad. Costs about $250 and has a 7" screen. The big downside is that there are only 70 or so Apps.

Florin, We already use a table for business. I would like to get a Kindle. I enjoy a good read. I try to keep work and relaxing seperate. The IPad would be an awsome toy!

Come On work Harder! We want to hear about it. LOL
I saw the comparison between the IPad and Kindle. The Kindle is better for reading and IPad for everything else. The IPad goes up to 1K and the Kindle is $260. Both would be pretty cool.

Its not about price. Its mine there. Right now they only have the wi-fi model out. I need the 3g model which I can access the net wherever I am at on the field.

I plan on using it with my quickbooks online and be able to invoice or estimate on the spot at a job or input expenditures.

Accept credit card on the spot via apps.

Calendar right there in the thin Ipad that I can place in my leather notebook that I carry around.

Holds photos and albums for on the spot showing of before and afters.

Can make a apple version of a powerpoint presentation on it which i can let customer view while I am measuring their property.

Respond to the umpteenth email accounts I have on a more full size keyboard.

10+ hours battery life.

Can download a tom-tom app and can be used as navigation.

Has a app for a milleage calculator that you push one button at beginning of a trip and it calculates all your mileage.

Internet surfing on there is just plain awesome.

The only thing it dont do is apply wood stripper on a deck but am sure an app is coming out soon for that.

Yep pretty much but the big screen makes all the difference with everything you do on it. I see it as a thinned down laptop/organizer.

There is even a way around it by not being a phone. There is an app or service out there that you can get a call via the net and on to a bluetooth headset. Dont really care for that feature though. Still gonna use my blackberry for calls.

Sounds like good stuff, love my iPhone. Just a heads up, mac office stuff is not as good as Microsoft. It will do the job, but it's very limited. I have been using mac for my office for a couple of years now, and we are switching back over to a pc for accounting, and other duties.

Check this out for the Ipad. It is a credit card reader that plugs into the earjack. You can have the customer sign on the Ipad. No monthly fees. 2.7% and a 15cent transaction fee or 3.5% if you dont have the card and manually input it.

10 weeks later and I finally got it in. Made the mistake of ordering it from the Mac store rather than Apple directly.

This thing is awesome. I can't wait to put it to more use out in the field. It's hard to keep the fiance's hand off of it though.

I got my wife the 64gig one with 3g for our anniversary. She's really into music and photos and always saying that she can never get any of them when she wants them. Now I've loaded on 20 gig of music, and a bunch of photos and some aps. I'm sure she will love it. I also loaded on logmein onto it so we can access our computers at home and in both of our offices from anywhere. Now that is probably the best app I've found in years. I have it on my iphone but it's too small of a screen to use easily. Now I can log into 15 different computers, fix anything that needs fixing, print anything at a local printer from the systems and walk an employee through something on the screen. Kick ass program.

They also have another program that you can use to create a network with computers in multiple locations through the internet so its just like being in my office. But, I can tie in my home office with my outside office and all the laptops the guys use in the field so everything is seamless, and when the guys put something into their laptops it's automatically in the office system too.

I broke my freaking iPad already. We were washing a deck yesterday and I had my iPad on the dash... My helper thought he would do the smart thing and put it on the floor board since it was hot on the dash. My return line blew out of the tank in my van and when I came to my van and opened the door the iPad was sitting in like 2 inches of water. Lifted it up and water was pouring out of the speaker and charge port. I let it dry all yesterday afternoon and last night. This morning there I'd no sound, not even with an earbud and the screen keeps flickering. I am so depressed. Hope it gets better cause I doubt Apple will fix it or replace it due to water damage.
