Best Tablet PC on the Planet from an Android User....
on 25 April 2011
Call me Lazy but I purchased this for lazying about on the couch when I could NOT be bothered to boot up the "main DESKTOP" and sit in front of the huge screen.
Its nice once and a while to get away from the 24 inch Desktop PC Screen. Hence the iPad 2. - I don't know what I would do without it now TBH.
Anyways I never bought the iPad 1. because I just never got around to it, (however the new iPad 2), has a host of features at a slightly lower price and could not turn it down.
The iPad 2. has an "Apple made: A5 Dual core 2x 1 GHz ULTRA FAST CPU",- (double the speed of the iPad 1), and is so, so responsive its a beautiful article to work with, while sitting back connected via WIFI wirelessly linked to the Home LINKSYS router.
It has everything including "Garage band" which I've always wanted to boot, all for a decent price...My "16GB Model. mine cost just over 4 hundred".
I must admit its very thin, however it has a very tough Aluminium metal support: at the back, so its rock solid, NOT just made out of plastic, Like the white model would have you believe. No its a very study device indeed. and its still a trifle over priced compared to the Motorola Zoom, in my humble opinion. As the Zoom has many more features its also built very well however the iPad 2 has it by a hairs breadth quality build wise, even tho, the Motorola ZOOM is a beautiful device to hold and use.
However, if you want simplicity go for the ("iPad 2") with the best "capacitive touch keypad" in the world and more apps than anyone else, however, if you want unlimited features go for the Motorola Zoom with Android 3.0 OS, and if your cash strapped and still want a decent device go for the Samsung Tab -:(7 inches only) still nice to use.
If you do deicide to purchase from Amazon UK, be sure to buy a decent case with it, because its prone to sticky fingers, "hence the finger prints over the screen", and if you accidentally drop it, a case will help break the fall, providing you get a good one... however, there's many to choose from "Please don't buy the cheapest" - as they're a waste of money, buy something that will protect your new investment, "Apple iPad 2" for 5 years time with "an included screen" protector "essential" changing them regular every 3 months, as they're not expensive.
PS. everyone with Savy, and common sense, I can assure you unlike some others may have said: "You definitely DO NOT NEED any instructions" as the iPad 2 is in my humble opinion, is completely idiot proof. the "GUI is very intuitive" and there's really no need to read instructions, in my point of view... nope.!
Thanks again for reading folks, if you found my review useful Please leave me a Positive VOTE. - much appreciated.!! Thanks :-)
