iPad at Club iPhone in Vienna

On 4/22 the monthly Club iPhone showed two real Apple iPads (16 and 32GB) imported directly from the USA at the Eat restaurant in Vienna, Austria. Much smaller and lighter, than I had expected, but nethertheless too big to hold comfortably with one hand while riding a bicycle or travelling. Might be perfect as a surfstation at home.
