Apple iPad: Revolutionary Device with Advanced Technology A truly revolutionary device, the Apple iPad is perfect for your mobile computing lifestyle, including browsing the Web, reading and sending e-mail, enjoying photos, watching videos, listening to music, playing games, and much more. It features a brilliant 9.7-inch, LED-backlit display with IPS technology that delivers crisp, clear images and consistent color and a highly precise, capacitive Multi-Touch display that's Amazingly accurate and responsive--whether you're scrolling Web pages or playing games.Measuring just 0.5 inches thin and weighing a mere 1.5 pounds, the iPad is easy to carry and use anywhere. There's also a slight curve to the back. Which makes it easy to pick up and comfortable to hold. This version of the Apple iPad comes with 16 GB of internal flash memory and ultra-fast Wireless-N Wi-Fi networking. The iPad runs almost all apps from the App Store, including apps already purchased for your iPhone or iPod touch. And the iPad comes with 12 new innovative apps designed especially for the iPad, including Mail, Photos, Maps, Notes, and YouTube. When you're zooming in on a map, flicking through your photos, or deleting an email, the iPad responds with incredible accuracy. Reading and sending e-mail is on iPad's large screen and almost full-size "soft" keyboard. Import photos from a Mac, PC or digital camera, then see them organised as albums, and enjoy and share them using iPad's elegant slideshows. Watch movies, TV shows and YouTube--all in HD. The iPad syncs with iTunes just like the iPhone and iPod touch, using a standard Apple 30-pin to USB cable, so you can sync all of your contacts, photos, music, movies, TV shows, applications and more from your Mac or Windows-based PC. Other features include up to 10 hours of battery life, Bluetooth 2.1+EDR connectivity, and built-in speakers plus 3.5mm headphone jack. 9.7 inch LED-backlit Display The high-resolution, 9.7 inch LED-backlit, IPS display is remarkably crisp and vivid, making it perfect for web browsing, watching movies, or showing off photos. It's also been designed to work in any orientation--portrait or landscape. Multi-Touch Capabilities The Multi-Touch screen on the iPad uses the same revolutionary technology that's in an iPhone. But for iPad, the technology has been completely reengineered for the larger surface, to make it extremely precise and responsive. Landscape or Portrait View IPS (in-plane switching) display technology provides a wide, 178-degree viewing angle, enabling you to hold it almost any way you want and still get a brilliant picture with excellent color and contrast. Powerful Performance Designed by Apple, the new A4 chip provides exceptional processor and graphics performance along with long battery life of up to 10 hours. Apple engineers took the same lithium polymer battery technology they developed for Apple's notebook computers and applied it to the iPad. As a result, you can use iPad for up to 10 hours while surfing the web on Wi-Fi, watching videos, or listening to music. Apple's advanced chemistry and Adaptive Charging technology deliver up to 1,000 charge cycles without a significant decrease in battery capacity over a typical five-year lifespan. Stay Connected With built-in wireless-N Wi-Fi, the iPad can take advantage of the fastest Wi-Fi networks around. It will also automatically locate available Wi-Fi networks, which you can easily join with a few simple taps. In addition, Bluetooth 2.1+EDR enables you to connect to devices like wireless headphones or the Apple Wireless Keyboard. Environmental Design Continuing Apple's dedication to designing and creating environmentally responsible products, each iPad enclosure is made of highly recyclable aluminium and comes standard with energy-efficient LED-backlit displays that are mercury-free and made with arsenic-free glass. iPad contains no brominated flame retardants and is completely PVC-free. iPad Apps iPad will work with almost all of the over 140,000 apps for the iPhone. That means popular apps for gaming, video, Amazon Kindle, cooking, photography -- whatever it is you're into -- are at your disposal. The process for getting new apps is exactly the same: Just download them from the App Store and start using immediately. Or, if you already have apps for your iPhone or iPod touch, you can sync them to iPad from your Mac or PC. Then run them in their original size, or expand them to fill the screen. And developers are working on new apps designed specifically for this amazing device and all the things it can do. The iPad also includes 12 new innovative apps designed especially for the iPad: Safari The large Multi-Touch screen on iPad lets you see web pages as they were meant to be seen--one whole page at a time. And with iPad, navigating through the web has never been easier, or more intuitive. Mail In landscape, you get a split-screen view, showing both an opened e-mail and the messages in your Inbox. To see the opened e-mail by itself, you just turn iPad to portrait, and the e-mail automatically rotates and fills the screen iBooks You'll be able to buy everything from classics to bestsellers from the built-in iBookstore. Once you've bought a book, it's displayed on your Bookshelf. To read it, all you have to do is tap on it and it opens up. Photos The new Photos app displays the photos in an album as though they were in a stack. Just tap or pinch to open the stack, and the whole album opens up. Then you can flip through your pictures, zoom in or out, or watch a slideshow. Video The large, high-resolution screen makes iPad perfect for watching any kind of video: from HD movies and TV shows, to podcasts and music videos. You can also easily move between wide-screen and full-screen with a double-tap. YouTube The YouTube app organises videos so they're really easy to see and navigate. To watch one, you just tap it. When you're watching in landscape, the video will automatically play in full screen. iPod With the iPod app, all your music is literally at your fingertips. You can browse by album, song, artist, or genre, with a simple flick. To play a song, just tap it, and the now playing screen will show the album art at full size. iTunes Just tap on the iTunes Store icon, and you can browse and buy music, TV shows, podcasts--or buy and rent movies--wirelessly, right from your iPad.

Notes With its expansive display and large, on-screen keyboard, iPad makes jotting down notes easy. In landscape mode, you get not only a note-taking page but also a list of all your notes. Calendar You can see an overview of a whole month, or the details of a single day with Calendar's Day, Week, Month or List views. iPad will even show multiple calendars at once, so you can manage work and family calendars at the same time. Contacts A new view lets you see both your complete contact list, and a single contact, simultaneously. Need directions? Just tap on an address inside a contact and it'll open Maps. Spotlight SearchYou can search across iPad, and all of its built-in apps including Mail, Contacts, Calendar, iPod, and Notes. It will even search apps you've downloaded from the App Store.

Then you can run any of those apps in either their original size, or you can expand them to fill the screen.

Very reasonable I thought.
So I ordered one, very late at night, and made one small query by e-mail the next day which was promptly answered to my satisfaction. The iPad was despatched around 2pm and arrived for breakfast the next day, and at £2 or so this has to be a bargain.
Opening the sealed box I found 2 new and sealed plugs and a similar USB cable and documents. The iPad was flawless and indistinguishable from new.
Firing it up I was confused by the appearance of just a USB cable on the screen and 'iTunes'. Where is the operating system? Now what?
Eventually the penny dropped and I downloaded iTunes from Apple onto my W7 laptop, plugged in the iPad and Bingo... it sprung into life.
I was told there was an update of the Operating System available so downloaded that. It took a while because it is a large file. It was then installed automatically. I had to create an account in order to access Apple Store and this is password protected. You will need to use this every time you want to access the Store for Apps etc and download freebies for eg. I downloaded lots of free games for my grandsons and listened to 30 sec snippets of music for free: excellent.
The screen is far far superior to other (Android) tablets, but you are locked in to Apple products. Programs using Adobe Flash won't run (so download Puffin browser (59p).. sorted). Some sites I use won't accept Safari which is a nuisance, and I haven't solved that yet. My earphone jack doesn't fit and there is no USB or HDMI port, however the sound is very good indeed, much much better than the usual squeak from a laptop.
You can't increase the internal storage so work out how much you need before you buy. iPads with more memory are wickedly expensive, as is adding 3G. I use my HTC phone as a portable hotspot.. Sorted.
The screen orientation is swift and smooth, pushing Apps around from screen to screen is easy and setting up syncing with Outlook, IE9, and my photos was very simple and easy to do. It found my wireless network and quickly joined the network once I had typed in the password. Collecting e-mails from my 3 accounts elsewhere was a piece of cake and all-in-all the software was very easy to use and worked without a hitch.
I bought an iPad 1 with 16GB Wifi. Since it works flawlessly and I have used only 2GB so far, buying more at vast expense would have been a big mistake. iPad 2 is a bit faster I believe but the screen is the same I think so I don't think I'm losing anything by buying the 1 version.
All in all a great easy-to-set-up easy-to-use product at a great price thanks to DigiGood. In fact, I was so satisfied, I bought another!
Recently, when buying an iMac, I took another look.
Then I took my digital camera in and asked the store to demonstrate loading images from it. Brilliant!
I bought a 32gb model plus camera kit.
Since then I find new surprises with it every day.
The grandchildren love it for browsing and games.
I have discovered books - using Kindle reader (free) but also the iBooks application that comes with the iPad - not to buy books as they are overpriced, but to read PDF files. Fantastic as I can have my camera documentation readily available.
Email is a breeze.
Browsing the Web comes of age on this device and the keyboard is surprisingly ... Well, superb!
videos are amazing, music great..
I've bought the iWork apps as they are useful to me.
Bottom line is that I have no need of my net book now.
the Toshiba NB300 CAN pick up the Wifi better, it is true, but there is only one blind spot in the house for the iPad. It has worked well in family and neighbour houses on their wifi.
I have worked in the computer business since 1965 and I think I have been more impressed with this little baby than almost anything else - including Cray supercomputers!
Money well spent, in my opinion. The future of non-technical computing is the tablet, I think. for the technical and business stuff, the PC, and for the images and music, the iMac. Shortly the PC will move via Bootcamp to the iMac.
This 1st edition machine even though in good condition is practically useless as it won't download many of the useful aps rated upwards of iOS 5.1.1.
So in my situation a bad purchase .
1. Surfing the internet at the dinner table or watching TV.
2. Accessing email in the above locations.
3. Playing fun and distracting games in the above locations.
4. Interacting with social-media without losing touch with your family.
That's about it, but these are not to be underestimated. Rather than this being a bad review of the ipad, I'm actually a big fan. How many times have you been discussing some forthcoming purchase with your spouse, or a holiday you wish to go on, or a job that needs doing, and your first thoughts turn to research on the internet? The ipad is ideal for this without having to disappear upstairs for half the evening. It lets you maintain relations with your family yet still use the web and respond to emails. The games are great fun, and many have a big educational value to young children. As a teacher, I use mine with pupils learning phonics, learning to form letters correctly, learning spatial awareness, number bonds, the list goes on. There are educational apps for almost anything you want to learn about, and hardly anything keeps their attention more than a multi-media app on a touch screen.
The one let-down that remains even with the ipad 2, is the lack of Flash capability which renders some websites totally unusable. This is a great shame and as far as I'm concerned, is its greatest down-fall.
In conclusion, I will remain an ipad user, and for me personally, the second version doesn't offer anything I want. But I think Apple have created the holy grail of new inventions, i.e. to create a need from a product, rather than to create a product to fulfil a need.
