Otherwise its the job for my aging laptop with a battery life of an hour tops.

Sounds like most apple devices after a few weeks :P

Maybe that's a bit mean ;)

I can see why you want this but it isn't going to be easy to port across.

The ruling (http://www.copyright.gov/1201/, part (2)) is specific to "wireless telephone handsets", which the iPad is not. The press reported it incorrectly as "iPhones and other mobile devices", but it is narrower than that.

Well as the iPad also now has facetime, the new one at least could probably fit into that ruling.


That would arguably make it a "wireless telephone", but no mere functional change could make it a "handset".

The iPad 2 has both a speaker and a microphone on a single unit - it contains both a receiver and transmitter so does that not make it a handset?

You & I may argue about this all week, and I may ultimately agree with you, however it seems to be a fair stretch (less than half of those definitions support your argument).

Regardless, in the end if you root your iPad2, Apple decides to sue you, and your defensive argument revolves around the above interpretation, you should expect Apple to argue vigorously in court that the iPad2 is *not* a mobile telephone handset.
