First Encounter with an iPad...iPad
A very kind coworker knew that I was interested in actually trying out an iPad, so he left his with me while he was in a meeting yesterday so I could play with it for a while. Some quick impressions:
1. It's heavier than I expected, but also less awkward to hold than I expected.
2. I would want to get a dock, but it was perfect serviceable both on my lap and placed flat on my desk.
3. Typing was a million times easier than I expected. I am not a touchscreen keyboard fan, but this was by far the easiest touchscreen keyboard I've ever used. After just a few words, I was typing accurately without having to look at it.
4. It was fast. Much faster than my netbook or my smartphone.
5. The Marvel comics app is incredible, and I'm not even particularly into comics.
6. I knew the video would be great, but I was impressed by just how great it was. I used the ABC app to watch the beginning of an episode of Castle, and it looked better on the iPad than it had on my TV.
I tried out as big a variety of stuff as I could, so if you have any questions, let me know and I'll try to answer!Posted by Kat at April 24, 2010 09:36 AM
