Very excited about this because if it is cheap enough, it could act as an ebook reader as well as a general computer. Hopeful that Apple makes a mat version. I can't stand the glossy laptops and I suspect I won't like a glossy tablet. If it only comes in glossy, it won't make much of an ebook reader. Finally, anyone that has an iPhone knows that the battery is a disaster and the phone needs to be replaced about once a year since the battery cannot be replaced. Is this the case with the iPad?
