Walked into Curry's Digital at 6pm after work and nabbed the last iPad 2, 16GB wi-fi in black. I would have preferred 32GB but happy enough with that.

My no queueing plan = COMPLETE SUCCESS.

Held one today in-store. Didn't feel thinner/lighter. If they'd left a regular ol' iPad 1 next to it perhaps i'd notice the difference.

Has anybody got an iPad 2 with a Smart Cover? I like the cover, it connects to the iPad seamlessly, looks great and is excellent protection for the screen but it doesn't protect the rear of the iPad at all which, like on the iPhone, is by far the easiest place to scratch. I think I might have to get a separate soft case to protect it while travelling or even just taking it out of the house.

Yeah, I'm not sold on the cover at all. Think I might just go for a wallet type thing, and a separate stand, probably the TwelveSouth compass. And maybe even an Incipio hard case to cover the back, which is what I have on my phone.

I got the leather smart cover yesterday, thinking that it did more than it actually does. It looks great and the stand aspect is good but yeah, a hard case or wallet is going to be a must I think.

My iPad never leaves the house anyway. I would maybe take it on holiday or long flight/train journeys but for day to day stuff it's too big to lug around.

At under three quid for the Mac app, iPhone and iPad app, it's just about the best value thing ever. Better value than 99p fries from McDonalds!

The best bit... you can access your media from outside your home network!

Great when you're away or travelling.

Just waiting for them to release an ATV3 (Hopefully with A5 and therefore 1080p and legit ATV apps).

That's pretty awesome, think I will have to check it out. What's the best Twitter client for iPad? The official one is pretty horrid, especially when creating new tweets.

What's wrong with the official one? I rather like it.

I don't like the overlapping windows, the tweet editing box looks terrible and it's really fiddly to actually go through to somebody's profile page and recent tweets. It's very cluttered in landscape orientation with the keyboard up.

I do like the quote/retweet functionality and link handling though.
