I totally agree. Tempted to get a Kindle or two to give as Xmas presents for family that just wants to have something portable to read books.
But definitely that won't delay me getting an iPad as soon as the next upgrade comes out, hopefully in January. I would wait for that regardless to get my first iPad so I can benefit from display and processor upgrades. And Siri on the iPad
Sure it would be nice if iPads were cheaper to give to my whole family, too. But I don't see Apple lowering the prices. I just like the fact that iPads are priced well and that they hold the prices with upgrades! Apple's margins are reasonable despite what others may say. That bit of extra money I pay for Apple stuff fuels the company so it can make vastly superior products. You really get what you pay for with Apple -- you get quality, visionary products, great customer service, etc, etc. Other products may give you something cheaper but they are just trying to buy market share -- haven't seen anything worth even considering for a real tablet. iPad is so much better it like comparing, well, apples and oranges.
