I had the chance to play with a iPad while I was in BestBuy today. As there is no office suite, I wanted to see whether I could run Google Docs. While I was entering password, it tends to show each character that I was entering before displaying *. For example, When I type 'abc' it first showed 'a' then '*', '*b' then '**', '**c' then change to '***'. Anyway, I couldn't login as my complex password was too much for iPad. Overall, I felt Safari was bit slow on it.
I love the concept & how it feels. But, the ideal hand held computer that I want is still in design. I can wait couple of more years.
