Thanks for your input, Jeremy. Maybe I should just get the iPhone & see how I like it. Then if I still have a need/want for the iPad, that can go on my wish list.

Jeremy Tondee:

Sorry to double post, but after my experience with the iPad I would have no problem buying an iPhone. I have no problems with androids and I'm not apple fanboy, but I can say regardless of how you feel about apple or google; apple makes a good product. your just going to pay alot more for them

Concur Apple makes good products.  Some iPad's now being used in commercial airlines => http://www.gottabemobile.com/2011/05/27/alaska-airlines-pilots-using-ipads-instead-of-paper-flight-manuals-up-close-with-pilot-ipad-gear/

Observation: Apple offers refurbished 1st generation iPad's starting at $ 349 => http://store.apple.com/us/browse/home/specialdeals/ipad  Android tablets less than $ 349 have 7" screen instead of 10" that are easier to hold (e.g. Nook Color) with touch screen area about 45 % smaller than an iPad.

By the way, Apple has priced 27" iMac competitively (high resolution 27" monitor is $ 849 or more) with refurbished models => http://store.apple.com/us/browse/home/specialdeals/mac/imac including second fastest iMac => http://store.apple.com/us/product/G0JP0LL/A (1 TB drive) and http://store.apple.com/us/product/G0JP2LL/A (256 GB Solid State drive).

Apologies: reading about disappointing Android tablet sales by several manufacturers => http://www.businessinsider.com/android-tablet-manufacturers-shift-concentration-to-phones-2011-6  (surprised Asus not mentioned with Samsung in article).

Learning Samsung's Galaxy Tab 10.1 does not have USB (nor micro SD) => http://www.mobiletechreview.com/tablets/Samsung-Galaxy-Tab-10.htm  (starts at $ 499, same as Apple's iPad 2).  Looking at pictures, appears Samsung's Galaxy Tab 10.1 copied many iPad 2 design features.

Reading rumors about iPad 3 with retina display => http://www.tomsguide.com/us/iPad-3-Retina-Display-High-Resolution-New-Screen,news-11532.html (know iOS 5 coming this fall, not know when for iPad 3).

Keep Smiling Smile

Thanks for the web info! I think I'd better go for the iPhone &  wait for the iPad 3. A clerk told me this week that the iPad 2 had the retina display. No so!

I hope that was at Best Buy and not an Apple Store! The iPad 2 hardware can handle graphics better, however.

I was in an Apple store today (Oxmoor Mall, Louisville, KY) and took a close look at the iPad 2's. I hate to admit it, but neither I nor my son-in-law were very impressed with the fonts for reading books. Unless I have a change of mind, I will probably wait for the iPad 3's if they have the retina resolution.

I did see an iPod Touch 4 with the retina display, and its fonts were a great improvement over the iPad's. The fonts were really sharp and crisp in the book reader.

Retina display on ipad3 is only rumor.  Unless prices drop significantly on that kind of tech, they will be cost prohibitive on a device that large.  Plus if Samsung and apple don't settle their legal disputes amicably, Apple may have to look for a new company to make displays for their devices.  I wouldn't hold my breath for a retina display on a tablet anytime soon.  But it could happen.  IPS display is your best alternative currently.

I looked through the rest of this thread and didn't notice an update on this.  We are close to July.  Does anybody know if this has been resolved?

Thank you in advance, Fred

Sorry, I thought I had quoted the conversation about Logos possible not being available through Apple and the thought that it would possibly be resolved by July.

Thanks, Fred

Fred - 

Apple did back down on the rules. It looks like everything worked out for the best.
