Can't wait for Acronym to design an overpriced jacket around it for no good reason.

Anyone have any problems with wifi dropping?, using the other half's ipad and getting issues with no signal?. Thought they remedy this problem already.

Well trying to convince her to let me jailbreak it but she ain't having none of that, really wanted to try backgrounder which allows multi-tasking on the Ipad. However, its indeed lovely piece of kit and you can't help but get won over by it, probably buy my own while the new OS comes out later this year.

I've been very tempted to buy one myself, I keep going to the Apple website and looking at it like a little kid Laughing out loud But I feel like I should wait til' the 3rd or 4th one when Apple will bring out the big guns; Like they're doing with this new iPhone. FUCK YOU, APPLE.

^Yeah of course but then Apple products do retain a good resell value so just pick one up and sell at a later date.

Phelan do it and don't tell her. You just plug it in and press one button and it's done in under 3 seconds. Easiest thing I ever done

Don't do it. I was happy I didn't buy the 1st gen Ipod touch. It was shit compared to the later versions.

Yeah I've been thinking about this too, I figure if I kept it in decent condition I could still shift it for £300 or so in a year.

That's what I've been comparing it to too and the 1st gen iPhone. The 2nd gen always seems to topple the 1st gen in a swift blow. And obviously the 3rd and 4th gen's are better, but the 2nd gen in Apple's mobile line so far are holding up pretty well. It's a good number to start with.

Just wifi

It's like saying don't buy anything new as it's assays better to buy it once it's a year old. Bore off, you want to be the first and have all the alters stuff

Laughing out loud the only difference is the external speaker no?
