Apple iPad Review

 

APPLE DIDN'T CALL the newest iPad the iPad 3 or the iPad HD—just the iPad. And that's fitting, because while it's a handsome upgrade to the best tablet on the market, it's not a huge leap forward. If you've used any iPad for more than 10 minutes, this...

iPad Review (2012)

 

iPad Review - The New Ipad is here and it features improvements that were much anticipated, namely a very high resolution display, a much better camera and support for 4G LTE.

Many were expecting a “leap” from iPad 2 to the new iPad, but although we all want “more”, “now”, the reality is that this is going to be a evolutionary process going forward. This time around, Apple has addressed a few priorities like the screen...

Review Apple iPad 3G 64GB

 

Entertainment Tablet. Is the iPad the heralded revolution? Can it

Precise touchscreen use; Outstanding IPS screen; Silent; Good battery life; Appstore and iPhone compatibility

Arrow keys are missing (virtual and hardware); Only Apple Apps permitted (no alternative browser); Few expansion options; iOS4 not yet available

At the moment, there aren't any serious ones, soonest the iPhone4, upcoming: Samsung Galaxy Pad and MSI tablets.

Mute Button Going Away on iPad

 

Don't worry, don't worry, you'll still be able to shut the sound off. We're just not sure how you'll do it and how quickly you'll be able to manage it. But but but, you say, I've spent hours poring over every physical detail of the iPad from the...

Besides a mute button is a bit of unnecessary on a dedicated e-reader/media device with all that touch screen real estate. Instead, Apple has altered the functionality of the switch to be an orientation lock. That means just because you shift a little...

The sharpness and clarity of the new iPad's improved display smacks you in the face as soon as you turn it on. It's an upgrade that forces a nagging question: Where does Apple go from here?

Apple iPad Wi-Fi + 3G (64GB)

 

Integrated mobile broadband makes Apple's excellent tablet much more useful on the go, but the additional expense doesn't make sense for everyone.

There’s no question that having 3G inside the iPad makes it a more compelling device. You can surf the web, stream video (albeit at lesser quality), and download apps while mobile. We also think an iPad with integrated mobile broadband is simply more...

Product Specifications

Apple iPad Wi-Fi is a magical and revolutionary product at an unbelievable price and the best way to experience the web, email, photos, and video. All of the built-in apps on iPad are designed from the ground up to take advantage of the large multi-touch screen and advanced capabilities of iPad. And they work in any orientation. So you can do things with these apps that you can't do on any other device. The high-resolution, 9.7-inch LED-backlit IPS display on iPad is remarkably crisp and vivid. Which makes it perfect for web browsing, watching movies, or viewing photos. With iPad, there is no up or down. It's designed to show off your content in portrait or landscape orientation with every turn. And because it uses a display technology called IPS (in-plane switching), it has a wide viewing angle. So you can hold it almost any way you want and still get a brilliant picture, with excellent color and contrast. The multi-touch screen on iPad is based on the same revolutionary technology on iPhone. But the technology has been completely reengineered for the larger iPad surface, making it extremely precise and responsive. So whether you're zooming in on a map, flicking through your photos, or deleting an email, iPad responds with incredible accuracy. And it does just what you want it to. One of the first things you'll notice about iPad is how thin and light it is. The screen is 9.7 inches measured diagonally. So overall, it's slightly smaller than a magazine. You can use it anywhere. And a slight curve to the back makes it easy to pick up and comfortable to hold. With built-in 802.11n, iPad takes advantage of the fastest Wi-Fi networks. It automatically locates available Wi-Fi networks, which you can join with a few taps. iPad also comes with Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR, letting you connect to devices like wireless headphones or the Apple wireless keyboard.
