I bought an Apple iPad when they first came out, but I would not make the same decision today.
Don't get me wrong , the iPad is a great device , and I use it all the time, but the new Android alternatives offer so many great additional options. The ability to increase the memory space with SSD cards, or to have a standard mini-usb socket, or indeed a normal USB socket. I know HTML5 will eventually replace flash on mobile devices, but when you hit a page that uses it and the iPad doesn't support it, you feel short changed.
As I use a lot of cloud applications daily, and especially Google apps, the integration is seamless with Android, and far less so with the iPad. You can make most of it work, but it's not quite the same.
You can also get some great options that support Android if you want a slightly smaller 7" size, and the new Kindle fire and Borders Nook tablet will offer a wide range of features, when they appear in Europe. They will try to tie you into their services, which may or may not be a draw back for some users. They certainly won't be any worse than the iTunes lock-in that Apple provide.
If I went shopping today for a tablet, I would buy an Asus Transformer for a 10" model or a Cambridge Sciences for a very cost effective 7" model. You can even go cheaper with some of the Taiwan and Chinese unbranded models, if you are prepared to compromise features.
What did you get, or are thinking of getting?
