Once downloaded, iTunes: Backed up the iPad, prepared the iPad for the software update, updated the iPad and finally verified the updated software.

Total time elapsed was under 4 minutes!

Downloaded for iPhone. Update was about 8 minutes.

iPad download almost 600 MB, while iPhone update was 423MB.

Why the huge difference?

Just tested Personal Hotspot with Wi-Fi iPad and Bell iPhone 4 and it worked perfectly.
Sign, no love with iPhone 3GS. I dared to dream

I do like the fact that Lock Rotation is back on the side switch but nothing of interest for me.

EDIT: Got my 3GS paired to my iPad and am cruising net

Repakable, not surprising, guess I got in earlier.

I assume they released iOS 4.3 earlier to avoid strain on the servers when iPad2 goes on sale Friday.

I have now updated an Iphone, iPad and a iPod touch. Combined it's over 1.5GB of download. I can't believe they can't make it more efficient.
