iPad pre-orders in Canada enabled, I drink the KoolAid

Canadian pre-orders started today.

64 GB WiFi version ordered, should be here by May 28. No need for the 3G version, I can tether with MyWi on the iPhone.

My dad picked up the similar model on a trip to the US last week. Was playing with it on the weekend, awesome device. Perhaps not magical but still most impressive.

I'm waiting for the cameras, then yeah, it's open hunting season on one of those bad boys.

I was leaning that way as well. I did wait for the 3GS iPhones to appear before getting a his'n'her pair. After playing with my dad's iPad on the weekend I decided that the current devices to what I really want for home: sit back, read the newspaper, web, email, etc. I already have Skype and a SIP client on my iPhone and they work very well. Will put those on the iPad.

I'm waiting until Rogers doesn't shove their whole arm up your ass with the 3G subscription pricing. $15/month for 250MB? What, I can't get a bloody dial-up plan for $1.50/hour instead?

I'm going to have to make a decision sometime in the next few montsh (I'm also with Rogers, and my v635 is now almost 4 or 5 years old ... I like it, but it IS overdue for an upgrade).

Until the droid phones, I wasn't all that interested in a smartphone - the display specs kind of sucked. The next generation are nicer, but the Evo 4g is what really catches my eye. A screen large enough that it should be easier to accurately hit the keys on the virtual keypad. Or have two people actually look at something at the same time, instead of just passing it around. And still small enough to carry around in a pocket or purse (unlike the iPad).

Will Rogers carry it? With my luck, probably not. Or even the Motorola Milestone ... also a nice phone.
