Re: What can the iPad be used for?

The Kindle DX e-reader retails for $489. and its just an e-reader. The base price of an iPad is $499. For $10 more you get an almost laptop. So the Kindle, Nook and so on should be about $50 based on your $250 for the iPad.
An e-book reader will give you hundreds (if not thousands) of hours entertainment on one charge, they usually have slots for USB and/or SD cards PLUS they don't tire your eyes when reading on them anyway near the way a typical monitor (like on the iPad) does. By those arguments the IPad should be free.
