As Apple prepares to ship out the first iPads, my work and NABJDigital Twitter followers have been discussing whether or not to order their own. I love to have the latest tech toys, but I’m just not feeling it for the iPad quite yet. I have an iPod Touch, a Blackberry Curve and a Dell laptop. I’m just not seeing how an iPad would fit into my life right now. And $629 for a 16GB iPad with 3G wi-fi access is a bit steep for my pocketbook.
But if you’re still thinking about getting one, there is help. Thanks to Mark Luckie of the 10000 Words blog for passing along a column from Wired magazine’s GeekDad blog, which has a cool flow chart that walks you through the process of whether or not you need to buy an iPad. If you get one, drop us a line — we’d love to write about how you’re using it!
