Has anyone else got one- what do they think of it.

    Waht's the purpose of your purchase? Is it so you can upload photos faster and hassle free because you can use things like dropbox?

    As for picture quality I'm sure it will be better than a lot of digital cameras and definitely better than phone cameras. But won't take better pictures than DSLRs

    Yes, you are a bit well known as early adopter =) I've visited a few schools and they mention you by name (New Market for one)

    I am an android person through and through (I have Galaxy Nexus phone and Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1) but it's hard for the classroom when app developers don't target education. Everything cool needs to be rooted and while I am able to do it, I'm not going to root 100 devices for my school. So looks like my school will go the iPad route soon.

    I think if you dislike cords then yeah, this device would be decent for you. Just be aware though that you'll be taking a lot of pictures at a higher megapixel rate which means that your photos will be large. If you take a lot of photos say 30, then uploading 30 will take quite a bit of time over wifi or 3G. Also be aware that if you get 3G you'll need a sim card or something (not sure what they have inside the cameras). The benefit of cords is that they can load quite quickly.

    I think the device is fine, just be aware that picture quality won't be as good as on your DSLR. The lens is quite small (huge compared to phones though). Also, are you able to purchase if through your school? I know that Noel Lemmings do a great discount for schools. Usually cost + 10% as an individual and sometimes more if you are buying through the school's name.

    I don't know what you mean by double tapping for a full stop as I used Swype to type. 

    I think a lot of school's don't have credit cards, but they can set a very low limit. At the moment there is no itunes card equivalent but you can get prepaid credit cards.

    This is a good photo editor and it is free

    I'm not sure about the collecting credit card details but maybe you can read the terms and conditions. I've been in the beta testing group for years now and I haven't had a problem. They collect data so they know what words you use and how you swype to get them so they can actively adapt to the way you swype. (On the full stop thing, I know with swype after a fullstop and space, the next letter is also capital)

    I haven't found a great word processor yet, office suite is fine or smart office. Both are trial versions but I have the paid ones (I keep a lookout using App Sales app). Cloud On sucks. It is so slow and yet everyone still advocates it, I reckon people just copy other people's lists.

    Downloading on multiple devices only works for personal use. For any kind of business use (including schools) require bulk buying. Usually you buy them in 10 unit bundles.
