But I only paid 21,890/- for the iPad2 16GB Wifi. Was there a price drop in the last couple weeks?

Better features but no Eco-system for Playbook.

I agree, but thats taken care with the OS 2.0 wherein they have provided built-in compatibility with Android Apps so as long as the Android Eco-system works, you can Piggy back on it.

Hopefully the new OS will break a few records else they are going down. AFAIK Cheaper version has been discontinued now.

Just received both the iPad and the cover from two different sellers at the same time. That is merely 50 hours since I ordered online. Not bad.

Should I take an unboxing video? Just kidding....

Congratulations on your iPad.

I started with an iPhone and I ended up with buying an iPad and a Mac Book Pro. So far the experience with all my Apple devices have been good.

Does anyone here read Overdrive? It is available for free from the Newstand. Autocar India is available too but you have to pay about $2 an issue which is pretty reasonable IMO. Apple has also launched a Smart Case which is exactly like the smart cover except it protects the back of the iPad as well.

I have it from the day it was released as standalone app and now forms part of newsstand.

Great app and it's free. The only issue with it is it's too heavy. 250mb or sometimes even 400mb. Eats my 3G plan real quick.

The app and interface has improved dramatically and is at par with international auto mags however the content is still see through sales pitch than anything else.

Enjoy it.

Could you share the app store link of the app? I am unable to find it through search!

Edit: Never mind. Found the link. They have put the name in all caps (OVERDRIVE)

OVERDRIVE for iPad on the iTunes App Store
