Consumer review by:



The size is a little much, but easy veiewing nice sized interface, easy reading, not much at all for storage my little archos 9 has a 500 gig drive so that will spoil you. it is a little faster than the archos the screen is alot more responsive, had some trouble with webpages with flash. (HID) support is almost non-existent and that is a very important issue for me. I like my Headset and usb cam, for video conference. I think notioninks on the right track with the adam we will see.

Responsive, Easy to use

A bit slow on some appz, Web browsing loads flash slow, Limited compatibility, Limited storage, Poor software bundle

Consumer review by: will evolve into the computer of the future!


The Ipad is a great instrument. Computers of the future will go this way! Great working tool and playing tool. I don't have to keep going to my Mac for information. Anywhere in my house (at the dinner table, watching tv, sitting reading, etc.) Ican use my Ipad to get Email, check on information I read in the newspapers or on TV, Skype a friend, check my bank accounts and so on and so on. Plus I use it in conjunction with my portable Verizon Myfy and I can get on the web just about anywhere. Don't know an address for your car GPS...check it on your Ipad. Many great uses. I love it!

Compact design, Long battery life, Fast, Adequate storage, Good compatibility, Great software bundle, Easy to use

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...

It was packed with tons of stuff, but you can't please everyone. Probably the number one let-down when the iPad was at long last revealed was the fact that there was no camera, despite numerous rumors that there would be. Whether Apple pulled the...

The last piece is most interesting of all in that above paragraph because it suggests, despite what we all learned on the 27th, that there just might be the ability to run background apps in the software after all. Of course, it's the camera and its...

iPad review (4th generation, late 2012)


Last week at an event in San Jose, Apple CEO Tim Cook introduced two new iPads. One, the iPad mini, is a legitimately new product.

Display is still best-in-class ; Apps launch faster and smoother than ever ; App ecosystem is unrivaled

iOS is lacking some features ; Lightning ecosystem is relatively small ; Still pricey with LTE

A definite upgrade, but if you bought the last one you'll be just fine

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.
