8 million iPads sold to date. WalMart starts selling them 10/28/10. Verizon starts bundling the basic iPad with their wireless MiFi. However, at least 1/3 of users have never downloaded any additional apps (not even free ones). So, what are people doing with them?
Last week Amazon announced that Kindle owners would be able to lend certain books (based on publisher consent), and now Barnes & Noble announces the $249 NookColor. The catch: it's a compormise. Altho Android-based and 1/2 the cost of an iPad, it won't run all Android apps, bat...tery life is way shorter than E-Ink (but comparable to iPad), no 3G version (WiFi only), and like iPad/netbook/laptops, you can't read the screen in bright sunlight.
