The hype around the iPad which was announced yesterday has been pretty amazing, even by Apple's standards. As with a lot of these types of things the real detail only starts to trickle out slowly. For example, compare this page and this page. Notice the difference? Well it's subtle but in the UK, the iBooks feature of the iPad is not being mentioned.
I'm guessing this is due to much the same reason that the Kindle is crippled over here, the lawyers and copyright deals.
What with that and the micro SIM card which means you won't just be able to swap out the card from your 3G USB dongle and use it in your iPad. Maybe you need to think twice about buying one straight away.
Shiny as the new Steve Jobs goodness may be, look before you leap and definitely read the fine print.
