iPad is available today!

I am really curious to see what happens with Apple's new iPad.  I am not sure whether it will truly fly or flop, or how much it will penetrate the education market. Myself, I think I will resist the temptation to run out and get one right away. Being an early adopter can have some real disadvantages, as version 2.0 of anything often has more features at a lower cost.  However, this video from DK showing some mockups of their books in iPad form really blew my mind. How nice it will be for our students if their reading materials can become this multisensory and interactive!  What do you think?  Is the iPad the future of reading?  Thanks to the blog Dangerously Irrelevant for featuring this video.
