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 32 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.

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.

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.

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.

At the time, several months ago, it had iOS3 installed.
My skepticism seemed well-placed, because I struggled to find many useful apps for work. Sure, there was DropBox, basic email, and various (flawed and basic) word processors, but that seemed to be about it.
Of course, we found loads of apps for the kids, and they have loved it ever since. It has been fantastic for teaching numbers, animals, shapes, colours, letters, and so on, to our 2-yr old daughter.
Nevertheless I considered selling it on.
Then iOS4 was released, and for me this changed things a lot: the multi-tasking features made it considerably more useful, especially for work: now if I was listening to internet radio I could leave the app and start something else without the music fading. OR I could leave Skype/Fring running in the background when writing an email.
Finally I then found some very good apps that made it worthwhile: some useful work apps (even TeamViewer, where I can remotely access and control a colleague's networked PC/Mac anywhere in the world), more educational stuff for the kids, some fantastic newspaper apps (FT, The Economist, to name but two), and various reference apps (science, cooking, languages). The one app I found recently that I love is 'Air Video', which allows you to connect remotely to a PC/Mac on your home network (even if not at home) and stream movies from it: it works flawlessly!
I had an iPhone at the time I bought the iPad. Soon after iOS4 started working on the iPad, the iPhone started to feel fiddly and restricted. The much bigger screen and far superior battery of the iPad made the iPhone obsolete in my life. I therefore got rid of the iPhone and replaced it with a cheap Nokia with a much longer battery life.
So, the iPad has found a niche in my working day: it is my device for everything mobile except making phone calls from my O2 account (that is what the Nokia is for). For general purpose computing at home or a remote office, I have a MacBook Pro, which is of course a considerably more powerful machine that does many things that the iPad never will. But this is not such an easy computer to use on the move (e.g. on a plane or train), and this is where the iPad comes in very handy indeed. On the move, I now use my iPad over the superb '3' network in the UK, via a 'Mifi' dongle.
Other stuff which the iPad does brilliantly but is not well publicised:
Sat Nav: I run Navigon on it quite successfully.
Television: via the TVCatchup streaming service, or via iPlayer, it makes a fine portable TV.
Portable Radio: lots of useful internet radio apps.
Portable speakerphone: I use Fring and Skype for this functionality, and very well it does it too (better than the iPhone actually, because I think the iPhone's processor would struggle a tad with this).
Stuff I think could easily be improved:
1) The email app has handy features but I find it unforgivable that not even the font can be changed. Hopefully iOS5 will solve this.
2) The various word processors available are still very basic. For me, Office2 HD is the best.
3) iOS4 was buggier than iOS3 when it first came out (problems seem resolved now).
If you don't need
1) All-day battery life,
2) The processing power of a high-end laptop,
3) Fancy apps like 'Air Video' and 'The Economist',
then a light laptop like the MacBook Air makes a viable and much cheaper alternative than MacBookPro+iPad.
Have been looking for a tablet for sometime, to replace my Black 'n' Red A4 note pad, for use in meetings, but also something I can watch videos on, play a bit of music and ofcourse surf the web.
So far, I've has this for about 6 weeks, and not one problem. The wifi works great (some minor issues but that's down to the network I am connecting to), the screen is very bright and easy to use. The onscreen keyboard ACTUALLY works well, which I was a bit unsure about, and the App Store has everything you need (well it does for me so far anyway).
Some Bad Points
- Finger prints - typing away in meetings means finger print marks get on there pretty quickly. Get a screen protector and wipe the screen every so often (once a week for me).
- Camera - Not really that important I don't think. Haven't tried skype yet, but don't plan on taking any pics with it.
- Curved back - Doesn't make it easy to use flat or at an angle. Get a case for it. My TeckNet case was only £10 and it's perfect.
- Don't let people 'play' with it. I've had guys in my office just come over and start playing with it and they don't know what they are doing. If they want one, tell them to get one of their own.
- Flash - Is this really a problem? I've been on internet and not noticed it yet, so for me it's not an issue (yet).
- Do your research. Figure out what you are going to do with it and find out if people actually do that with it. For general notes in meetings, videos, music and surfing it's great.
-Get a case - This is a must.
- Get a screen protecor - This is a must.
The Good Points
- It works..... Straight out of the box and no problems.
- Apple - If there is a problem, take it to them and they will fix it.
- iTunes - I actually like itunes and it is very simple and easy to use.
- App store - got great stuff on it, like Dropbox and DocumentsToGo.
- Size - It's big enough to use, but not too big to creeat a barrier in meetings. Can easily watch films or TV shows in bed.
- Wifi - So far no compliants. Used it on my work network and home network (when PC broke). No issues.
It's so simple even my wife can use it well....
All in all a great product. A bit steep on the price, but this is Apple. You get what you pay for. A great quality product that works. And if there's a problem people will sort it for you, and will have a smile on their face when they do.
But after using it for just a few weeks i have found it amazingly useful. When you can't be bothered to wait for you computer to boot up it its just there turning instantly on for you to surf webpages in amazing detail. The videos have made every flight i have made a much easier experience
