On the other hand, jailbreaking my iPad sounds very appealing to me. Why? First of all, I'm going with the wifi-only model. No 3G for me. I already pay AT&T too much every month for data service for my iPhone and the family plan my wife and kids are on. More importantly, if jailbreaking my iPad means I could tether it to my iPhone and tap into my existing data plan, well, how could I resist! My iPad won't be as critical a work device for me as my iPhone and enabling 3G access for it without having to pay an additional monthly fee sounds like a great idea.
Yes, I know jailbreaking my iPad means I'll void the warranty. But after repairing my daughter's iPhone screen awhile back I'm much more confident fixing Apple's devices on my own. And since we're still a week away from the iPad's release it's hard to say whether the jailbreaking process will be easy or hard. I can't wait to find out though!
P.S. - I'm hoping nobody at Apple is reading posts like this... Wouldn't it be ironic if my iPad is the only one that doesn't show up at the Apple Store next Saturday?
P.P.S. -- I couldn't resist the opportunity to embed the cover image of one of the greatest albums by one of my all-time favorite bands: Jailbreak, by Thin Lizzy!
