And the six different flavors is another thing that bugs me. They should have created 2 flavors of the iPad (if they insisted on having even TWO): 1 WI-FI model and 1 WI-FI/3G model. Both have 16GBs of internal storage and both have an SDHC card slot that is capable of reading/writing to SDXC cards. The SDXC format is spec'd to go up to 2TBs of removable storage. Seems like a no-brainer to me.
Huh. The iPad and the iPhone would be the perfect vehicles for such "widespread support." But considering the iPad's lack of such expansion (if you don't count it's silly read-only SD card adapter, which may not even support SDXC), I'm doubting highly the next iPhone will have one either.

Interesting, and I was on the list for one of the first 1's shipping. But then again, this is Apple.
