I still don't really understand why anyone needs expandable storage on a tablet. I have a 32gb iPad and I don't even come close to filling it up. Everything is either cloud based or streams to the iPad.

That being said, I thought this iPad thing was going to be killed off in a year. Why is this thread still going?

Because some of us don't choose to pay for the extra fees for internet on these devices and therefore can't stream on the go. Hence the appreciation for expandable storage. I would rather spend the money on a 8 or 16gb device and upgrade my storage at the cheaper rate myself.

I don't pay any extra fees for internet on my devices. My iPad is wireless-only.

FYI.... you can run XBMC on the iPad. It will look exactly like this:



You can even get the HDMI out adapter that will let you hook it straight up to your TV and display exactly what I demo'd above.

Let's see your Android tablet provide that kind of media experience...

This. I have thousands of books on mine, a couple of great movies and a couple of large music playlists, just I case I need some entertainment and there is no wifi. If I am really desperate to access google docs or something, I'll tether to my phone.

But most places that I take an iPad have wifi. It's never been a problem.

I am in the same exact position. Wifi at home and work...wifi everywhere plus tethering if in a bind.

I went wifi only as well. My biggest astonishment was with the number of airports that don't have free wifi. Ridiculous. Most of the time it's fine though.

If you have constant access to usable wifi it is. Some cities do better at that than others obviously.

Analyst: Q3 iPad Sales Could Hit 20M

Needham analyst Charlie Wolf thinks Apple could report quarterly iPad sales at 20 million units during its third quarter conference call on July 24. He originally projected 13.5 million units, and his new figures come in higher than Wall Street expectations.

Mr. Wolf decided his earlier estimate was low because 12 NFL teams have moved to the iPad for their play books, commercial airlines are adopting the iPad for cockpit documentation, more airlines are offering iPads to passengers on long flights, and schools are giving the tablets to students and teachers.

“We suspect the list is far longer, embracing, for example, travel agencies, real estate firms and restaurants, which are visualizing the products and services they sell,” Mr. Wolf said, according to Fortune.

He added that looking at how iPad sales have trended since it was introduced in spring 2011 helped shape his new estimate.

“When iPad 2 was introduced in March 2011, sales increased 97 percent in the following (June) quarter. Our forecast of 20 million iPad sales in June implies a 70 percent sequential increase from March,” he said. “While this number appears aggressive, it must be remembered that Apple has continued to sell iPad 2 at the lower price of $399.”

Apple will host its third fiscal quarter earnings report on July 24, and The Mac Observer will offer our usual live coverage of the event.

Apple is currently trading at US$593.92, down 12.66 (2.09%).
