A: I recommend you isharesoft iPad Video Converter or iSharesoft DVD to iPad Converter.
If you're looking for an excellent, free, alternative I'd highly recommend HandBrake, which also runs on Windows, Mac OS and Linux.

A: Yes, and they are much better looking on the iPad.
They aren't really tabs, not like FireFox, IE and Chrome implement tabs, they are more like extra windows. But I agree, far easier to manage than on the iPhone. I wonder if 4.0 will bring this scheme over to the iPhone.

A: Yes; they are located at the bottom of the iPad next to the dock connector. There is a volume cradle located on the side of the iPad to adjust volume levels.
Should be noted, while the iPad has 2 speakers driving sound, they are not stereo. For stereo sound you need to use headphones.

Should note the WiFi only iPad determines its location through Sky Hook Wireless.

A: Yes.
This one is debatable. With the sun shining overhead or directly behind me, it's not very readable unless I am doing something to shadow the iPad. Certainly not compared to an eInk screen.

Thanks for the list though.
