Is the iPad a mobile device?

I

Now that the iPad has been released and I don’t have on yet. (Yes. As you can imagine . . . very happy about it.) I’m wondering if the iPad will end up being a mobile device.

I have an iPad on reserve and very soon I will stand in a long line with many others to get what can only be called the most anticipated piece of computing since . . . well . . . since the iPhone! I’ve also been playing games on my iPhone (Primarily Asphalt 4) and I like them a lot but I have to say that blocking the screen with my thumbs to navigate is somewhat less...
