Does anyone know if any of the carriers would be offering any deals with a bundled service plan? Like I saw you could buy a 3G Playstation Vita at a discounted price if you signed up for 2 years of data at $850 a month. Just wondered if they typically offer anything like that for the iPad.

I doubt they would (although I could be wrong). Especially in Taiwan where unlimited data plans are available on smart phones, that have tethering. So it would be a better deal to share a single data plan between your iPhone and smart phone.

I got one sent to me for my birthday! The screen is killer! It blows the Ipad 1 out of the water.

Played with one for a short time and the screen is aces. Most noticeable when looking at text. But I was more impressed with the camera and how well voice dictation works. Very cool.

Before I go off and buy one, does anyone know where I might get this fixed?

Apple's out.
Problem isn't the screen. It's been dropped. It'll go on the fritz, then come back after a couple of days, a wipe, reset and restore (rinse and repeat). Happened half a dozen times now.

I'd love to get a 3 tomorrow, but my wallet wife is telling me that repair is the way to go, if at all possible.

Ordered one today “for the kids” - 1 week delivery. Fantastic service via Singapore agent. Gave us a call back when available, spoke at length as to whether the iPad suited our needs, finished up over phone and offered to answer any technical questions we might have. I wish other shopping experiences were this nice.

Are they advertising it as "4G"? I don't think there's any 4G in Taiwan.

Wow, that's terrible advertising. Check out the footnote at the bottom of the page (via Google Translate):

4G LTE in the U.S. only from AT & T and Verizon telecommunications network covered; Canada covered by the telecommunications network from Bell, Rogers and Telus. For more information, please contact your carrier.


No wonder Apple is getting in trouble in other countries.

11K for the iPad? That's reasonable. Almost tempting...
