I had been planning to use it just for e-reading, and movie-watching, and Google News. But I have found the email and calendar syncing so useful at work that it's rapidly becoming a productivity tool. At last I can see my personal calendar and my work calendar in one interface, so I can stop putting my personal appointments in my workplace calendar. Since I leave my workplace calendar open for all in the company to see, this restores a good measure of privacy. Battery life supports taking it to meetings. Have free wifi in the office complex, so works well for me.
