Fred, for that you could buy a Chinese knock-off for $100 and bring thrills to your kids. You don't need an Apple branded product to entertain kids alone. And if you must have an Apple iPad, you could always pick one up on EBAY for much less than retail.
My intentions for it are for myself and our family, hence my desire to see an Apple branded product have better features than the current version offers. I would find the current version "useful," but I would find a newer version with better cameras and higher resolution abundantly "more usable" (i.e., get the best possible "bang for the buck" in an application where many different people in a household will use it).

Piling on as a Newton 2100 user. I'm STILL looking for the ability to "write" on it. Just like I could do with my newton - MUCH faster than typing on a touchscreen, and I don't have to use part of the screen for a keyboard.
To an atheist, G. K. Chesterton somewhere remarked, the universe is the most exquisite mechanism ever constructed by nobody.

Um ... no.
As soon as I can manage to eliminate the need for checks and sticky notes, I hope to never have to write again. If I have trouble recognizing my own @#$% handwriting, I can hardly expect my iPad to do any better.
Even writing on my old Palm was a pain.
