    Wife wanted an Ipad, went and looked Saturday...well, the online movies she watches online do not work...nah, I don't think it's flash, as she can watch them on the iphone with imobilecinema.

    There went her only reason for the ipad...(she's only a user)...looking at the HP Slate as an alternative...looks pretty cool, front/rear cams, usb, flash, etc.
    This is one Apple product I will have to pass on...

    is see you have a 3gs....well how does that multitask? mine has always handled my needs and then some with no lag at all......so i'd say that since it manages so well with less ram than competitors, its safe to say that iphoneOS is WAY more efficient than any of the other mobile OSs out there.....for instance...i've got the nexus one also...twice the ram as the 3gs, but since i'm running the desire rom on it, i've got the same available ram on both devices......just means that android and specifically sense is pretty memory intensive compared to iphoneOS......add the fact that iphone apps are a ***** load more robust than anything i've downloaded from android market, and it becomes pretty clear that apple is still years ahead of google in terms of how well their mobile OS's operate.

    I know right? i love the ipad and all but 256 made me sad .... the ifixit people first said it had 256mb per die meaning 512mb total and that made me happy but then they said they were wrong and there was actually a total of 256mb ram...... it just runs so fast


    Buttttttttttttttt

    The RAM Dosent matter on this device and it is awesome with its 1 ghz processer.....

    i think

    Only 256?!? What! I'm guessing the new iPhone will be a complete let down then. I seriously thought this peice would atleast have 512mb. Running fast or not, 256mb is garbage.

    I still don't understand the reasoning of wanting 512MB of RAM on the iPad when it clearly has more than enough to multitask with 256. 3.1.2 on a 3GS and 3.2 on an iPad yield the same amount of available free memory to use for multitasking. The 3GS never runs low on memory. In addition to the phone and mail apps that run all the time I have iRealsms, iPod or Pandora, and IM+. I don't think there would ever be a need to run more than 2 or 3 additional apps at the same time. You could give the thing 16GB of RAM and it still wouldn't make it any faster or more usable.

    An iPhone 3GS (or IPT 3G) with the new bootrom on 3.1.3 is not able to be jailbroken. All other firmwares with the new bootrom have a tethered jailbreak which people are waiting for an untethered solution as well.

    This explains why the iPad feels so sluggish.

    Scrolling while zoomed in on Safari, the response is about 2 seconds behind my finger gesture.
    Keyboard cannt keep up with my typing sometimes.
    Scrolling down large HTML or PDF files requires long screen refresh times.
    Demanding apps such as Molecule is more sluggish then a 8 year old laptop.

    Apple A4 seems to be nothing more then hype.
    10 hours isn't that long considering how lacking in power the iPad is.
    With only 256MB and a single core Arm processor, this device seems more sluggish then my old laptop from many many years ago.

    I should have gotten a ION net book. Half the price and much more powerful.
