    sure, well I wouldn't worry about updates :) it'll be easy and fine. The way they're going with the OS I'd expect them to be working hard on upgrades for it especially in the first year or so.

    A search today of some of the probable retailers said it was likley it would be about £375 for the basic 16gb wifi but it may be as late as JUNE before it hits UK shores!

    There was concern about a production hold up but the manufacturers have largely let it slip that the run is just fine.

    We'll have to wait and see, I'm still hoping for march 26th (375 sounds about right though if not a tad optimistic)

    there's wifi there and I have my iphone and laptop, of COURSE I can answer him :taunt:

    Yep I am. I'm thinking of keeping it low key for the first revision. See what my usage pattern is like and HOPEFULLY I'll have chosen correctly anyway, if I DO desperately need the 3g I'll sell the wifi only to someone in the office I'm sure :)

    By the time rev2 comes with the camera and whatever else, I'll be willing to invest a bit more knowing what features are important/vital to me :yes:
