    I wish I could disagree with that but the facts are the facts :( It would be an even more useful device out the gate if it supported flash.

    However, flash really is the past, html5 and standards based rendering are the future. So although I don't agree with why they've left the support out, I don't think medium term it'll be an issue. (a lot of people are rushing to get non-flash versions of their sites out so it's more of a problem for adobe than apple).

    Mind you I have a whole history of disagreeing with Apple on this kind of stuff. I got my floppy disk ready to transfer my essential apps across.... and sat there like a prat looking for where to slot it into the gleaming new mac that was the first one to lack a floooopy drive because it was "obsolete"... Well no it aint obsolete just because Mr Jobs says so!

    Lets not even talk about how many different types of cable I've got all doing the same thing because the last generation used full sized firewire, oops now it uses mini-firewire, oops next one uses full size fw800, eeeek now it's mini fw800, then displayport, minidisplay port ARGGHGHGHGHGHGHGHHG

    Hmmm another thing though.

    They seem to suggest that the 3G version has "proper" assisted GPS like the iphone 3gs whereas wifi doesnt.

    I'm pondering if that's significant. After all I have a proper nav system in the car, an iphone 3gs for portability but I suspect that location aware services will become more and more "the norm".

    All I can tell you about location services is that everything that uses it that I've tried so far has been spot on.

    How well it would work from other locations I don't know.

    The thing with apple being so 'cutting edge' in everything that they include, they're also cutting edge in the stuff that they leave out They are ahead of the rest of the world that they stop including stuff that is going to be out of date in the foreseeable future.

    Absolutely!

    My only complaint so far is not being able to get a copy of the Hitchiker's Guide for it!

    That one's not an ePub from the iBook store. I suppose it will do until the real one comes along!

    Thanks for checking anyway!

    so I guess that's just a book in an app ? may look a bit weird on the ipad and I suppose quite a bit worse than the native book reader.
