Somehow I got bit by the iPad bug. I don’t own any iProducts, however for some reason the iPad has really got me excited. I’m just sniffing around it to get all of the information however I can see myself blogging from my iPad like an expert iFan.
What I’ve learned about the iPad:
- It’s super slippery. You must be very careful with the iPad. Not only is it slimmer than slim, but it’s also slippery too and can easily slip out of small hands.You’ll want to purchase a case for your iPad as soon as you make your purchase. I highly recommend you research different cases before settling on one. They’re all kinds of choices however not all will meet your needs.
- A data service plan with AT&T is not required. However, the information you’ll read appears as though you must have the data service plan. Not so. The iPad comes with a built in Wi-Fi system. This means you can log on wherever Wi-Fi service is available. So if you currently have Wi-Fi at home, the iPad will work just fine. However, the purchased data service plan is great for traveling.Let’s say you’re going on vacation for a month and must take your iPad along with you because you’re now living the Internet lifestyle. You can purchase a monthly plan with AT&T for just $14.99. There are no contract agreements and you can cancel after your vacation. This is awesome! Additionally, you don’t have to go into the AT&T store to purchase it. Everything can be done all from your iPad.
- The iPad gives you the qualities of a Kindle plus email, blogging, web surfing, watch movies, and so much more. Forget the Kindle and any other mobile reader. As I mentioned previously I don’t have any mac products as of this blog post. I own a PC and a BlackBerry. And my BlackBerry is too old for the new Kindle app. Hence I’m eyeing the iPad even more as I like to read wherever I go.
- An added bonus, you can sync your iPad to your mac or PC. You’ll never lose information or have to transfer information manually from the iPad to your computer. I still haven’t gotten the BlackBerry software to play nice with Windows Vista.
- The iPad battery last up to 10 hours. When I saw this I almost rushed out and purchased an iPad on the spot. My laptop only gets 2.5 hours on a good day. And my backup laptop doesn’t do anything without being plugged in. If nothing else the battery time span is worth it for me as I’m always on my computer. The flexibility of taking it wherever I go is oh so wonderful. I look forward to taking my computer on the go without the cords, Verizon card, and all the other stuff I’ve got packed in my computer bag.
I’ll keep you posted on whether I decide to purchase an iPad. I know for sure the price will need to come down some and any kinks need to be worked out before I make it official.
Are you one to rush and get the latest gadget? Or are you like me and wait for all the kinks to be worked out and the price to go down before you take the leap?
You know, I’ve been going back and forth between iPad and Nexus. The biggest thing with me is that I want the two cameras so I can Skype instead of use the mobile all the time. And I prefer Google and Android. But iPad with its first in advantage has me feeling some pressure. The cost of these things is too much for me to not be happy once I get it. There’s just so many decisions to make these days. My head is spinning. I’ll be interested to see what you think once you purchase one.
