In clearing out some personal phone inventory, I came across a really nice guy who wanted to trade his iPad 2 for one of my phones. It was a good deal as I could easily sell the iPad for more than the phone, but that's beside the point.
My wife thinks I should sell it. The main reason being she doesn't see a use for it. We're not mac people, we have a desktop and I have a laptop - both outdated but still running strong. I used to think like her - wondering what in the world is the point of the iPad. However, it seems like everybody I know who has one ends up absolutely loving it and using the heck out of it. The other benefit to it is we have a lot of family far away, and they all have the ability to do Facetime. Since we don't, we always end up wrestling something together to do Video calling, and sometimes it works good, other times it doesn't. So being able to do Facetime with them is a plus. But that's the only plus in her mind, and not enough to sway her.
So, I ask you iPad owners out there... why should we keep it?
Oh, this iPad 2 also came with a keyboard/dock attachment that looks awesome (iPad 2 Keyboard Case | Folio Cover W/ Wireless Bluetooth Keyboard | ZAGGfolio), and it's the basic 16 gig wifi-only model.
