I've just got one (two weeks or so) after being very dismissive and now I wouldn't be without it. It repays practice thumbing the keyboard and using multitouch. Even with my relatively sausage like fingers, it's very fast to use when you get used to it. Video and pics are outstanding as extra features; safari is very good at guessing how to zoom / unzoom pages on double tap - saves a lot of time trying to zoom to just the right level for text heavy pages. The only thing I intensely dislike is iTunes. I realise a lot of people rate it, but I've found it to be a sluggish, counterintuitive heap.
