    Has anyone tried flash browsers on the ipad?
    If so what are your experiences?

    Flash is the only thing stopping me getting an ipad

    In particular I want to view some websites that have flash videos embedded in them (not youtube but also want youtube stuff to work better than the iphone)

    I reckon I should be able to get $300+ for my current ipad2 wifi 16GB.. should help make the purchase gentler :) Or I spose I could keep it until there's a JB for 5.1 ;)

    I'm buying pretty much just for the screen :O

    Wonder if I can find someone going to the US =D $499 over there so $471... so $68 off?

    Looks like people are already ordering them via PriceUSA to get a slight discount:

    You keep forgetting that US prices DO NOT include their taxes, which are in addition to the listed price.

    has anyone pre-ordered yet?

    what are the chances the store ships it out to you the week of availability?

    I'm no export on US taxes but this from the PriceUSA site:
    I read somewhere that people were getting shipping info and it was expected delivery of 16th if you're in zone 1! (Hobart is zone 1 =D)

    I'm not fussed where my electronic goods come from... as long as they have a decent rep..

    Kogan is an arsehat.. but i'll still use him for cheap stuff.. (just bought a Galaxy Tab 7.7 3G)

    Would anyone know if Myer (Perth city or Garden City) allow for pre-orders? I have some MYER vouchers that I need to use up.

    well it's .5mm thicker but the camera is larger so if you can cut/drill a bigger camera hole in your case it should fit. Hard cases that are exact fits are another story.

    It's 0.6mm thicker. Not enough to effect most cases (apart from hard plastic ones but I wouldn't bother with something like that anyway)

    Camera may be an issue but the case I got has a large hole so shouldn't matter. I can't see myself ever using the camera anyway.

    Not to mention it's target. Can always return it. But it will be fine.
