I'm tempted to get it, the main reason for me is to read magazines and books. I already have a kindle, but it only works well for story books.
And if I get it, it'll be the black one. The cover, I'll get a 3rd party one. 3rd party covers will probably have the same function as the original iPad 2 cover, not to mention also probably much cheaper.
And the last thing that I will be looking out for is for the jailbreak to be out first.
I'm still considering whether to get it or not...
