Yesterday was a big day in the Great Tablet War. Both Microsoft’s Courier and HP’s Slate went down in defeat.  Google, the only major player left has yet to join the battle.  As such, we can call Apple’s iPad as the victor in the first major engagement.  And now their forces grow with the iPad3G.

However, I still was not planning on buying the iPad. Not at least till the iPad 3G comes out and ‘hopefully’ puts a few used iPad wifi’s on the market.  Well, the iPad 3G was just announced as available. And with Apple owning the battle field, my hope of seeing early adopters dropping the original iPad to get the 3G, and thus create a nice used market, is pretty much not going to happen. Sigh.  Oh well, I’ve waiting this long, I can wait longer.  However, as I mentioned yesterday with HP Slate dying, unless the gSlate has more to offer then rumored, (or is $150 less then the iPad) I may end up getting the iPad after all. I still want Flash yea know.

No surprises here. At&T and $15, $30 a month of service.
