So far I haven't figured out a use for tablets, except for one. In car entertainment.
How often does this happen to you? Drive around town, looking for something to eat but can't find anything. I am too cheap to pay for 3G or EDGE so I have to usually do things ahead of time. But what about those situations where your just out of wifi/3g/edge?
3G iPad! Dash mount the bastard and now you have on-the-go internet for $15 a month. On top of that, you can use it for navigation, playing music, watch music videos, hell even play a few games! Of course I'm a freeloader so all these extras are free.
I had an unplanned trip into my local bestbuy where I found out they don't have any instock. I overheard the sales associate talking about driving an hour and 20 min to another bb to get one. Said something about getting a freind to buy it for him as there was a 60day limit for employees. (I was trying to see how long it took to load some of my more frequent websites cause personally I still think even with the A4 its pretty slow)
As an iphone user I really like the device but can clearly see the high stakes robbery associated with it. With tax its 540 plus a case which is a must I would want a screen protector excel and word Your at 600 before any other useful $10 books or apps.
With the cost and the economy why would there be a shortage?
I mean not even 3 years ago people paid 499 for an original iphone and its loosing its support with os4.0. Will people ever learn. I paid 199 for my phone and just like this its slow and will only be slower with os4.0. Not paying more than 349 for this.

Unless you have ever crossed the US/Canada border before, either by plane or car.
You'll have to pay me $500 to ever talk to a American customs agent again.
There was an article on CNET saying that Israel is seizing iPads at the border and won't allow them into the country at all since it hasn't received approval to be sold there yet. Could this be part of the delay?
Anyone with a brain can see through the obvious hype interlaced with Apples statement regarding the delay. I can imagine the brainstorming session behind that statement: "how can we tell the international market that they will have to wait a month and at the same time put a positive spin on it, resulting in even more products sold..." Here's how: "Although we have delivered more than 500,000 iPads during its first week, demand is far higher than we predicted and will likely continue to exceed our supply over the next several weeks as more people see and touch an iPad." and..."Faced with this surprisingly strong US demand" They launched a product and didn't think demand would be strong? what a bunch of crap
