At the fire sale price of $99 and $149 for 32GB, this is a no-brainer. Compared to the iPad, the interface and the animations aren't as smooth, but it gets the job done. With the latest version of WebOS, the browser is fairly smooth and renders websites well in a timely manner. The ecosystem of apps is pretty abysmal (and I doubt that will ever change), although there are a few apps such as the original Angry Birds, and Splashtop Remote Desktop, which run well. The front facing camera is actually of decent quality, and WebOS has the ability to do Skype calling built in, which is pretty nice. For $500, no way- get an iPad 2. For the price that this is selling at now (around $200-$250), it's a maybe.
