I was seriously considering an Ipad3 with a Belkin Keyboard, I am 71 years old and not very mobile at the moment. ( wheelchair for awhile). This device will allow me to go someplace and stay connected to all my forum, this one included, now I am going to wait for these to be available. I really miss Flash on my Iphone 4S and I would miss it more on an IPad. Plus , it might be rumor but this comes with Office or a smaller version of it that includes Outlook. If I have a keyboard for it and Windows 8 has anything better on it than Windows 7, this might be a really good alternative buy. Plus I would have to consider pricing seriously.
