    I knew I could get “the skinny” from you Gary!
    Pass this on to my friends! :-)

    Hope printing works better this time around.

    What are the data plans going to be offered? I’d like to sideline my iPhone 3GS, get a VZ or AT&T iPad with Wi-Fi and get a cheap phone with 3G and a Mi-Fi to connect to the iPad.

      I’d look on the AT&T and Verizon site for that. Verizon might not have them up yet, but AT&T will since they have been offering their plan since the launch of the original iPad. But if you are looking for a MiFi device, then you can go with any carrier, not just AT&T or Sprint. They all list their plans on their sites.

    Why can’t we use Airplay to mirror the display? Do you think GarageBand and iMovie will run fine on the first gen iPad? Obviously, Photobooth won’t work…

      AirPlay is for streaming media. It isn’t for mirroring the display. Streaming is different than “live” display of real-time data. You can “stream” a live display as you can’t buffer into the future of what will happen on the screen next.
      GarageBand and iMovie are iPad 2 apps only. They will not work on iPad 1. At least that’s what I read.
