Between my 13" MBP and iPhone 3GS, both of which will likely be updated to new models when they appear, the window for me to see a real need for an iPad is very small.
So far, I think a great eReader for textbooks will have to be made and I'm not sure an app using ePub will do it since I'm looking for something that can replace actual textbooks not just mimic the content. I don't think the technology is here yet for what I want/need.
PS: The only other option is to get rid of the iPhone altogether and replace it with a 3G iPad since I don't use my phone as a phone much at all, I have Google Voice, and I am almost always with a book in my hand anyway. I'll have to see how this would work since it won't be pocketable for iPod use and what Apple comes up with new Mac notebooks, IPhone HW and iPhone OS updates
