Apple iPad Case

The Mac Observer
29 December 2010
  • Conclusion: My biggest complaint about Apple’s iPad case is that it shows dirt and smudges — in fact, it feels like a dirt magnet. I keep my hands clean, but my case still looks like I need to work on my hygiene skills.
  • Pros: Works as a case and stand, fits the iPad well, comfortable to hold, durable
  • Cons: Difficult to keep clean, unstable when using as a digital photo frame

  • Summary: Verdict: Is it worth it? Put it this way. If you never bought one, you wouldn’t miss it. But buy it and you’ll soon wonder how you lived without it.
  • Pros: Brilliant user interface, lovely LCD screen, great form factor and design, WiFi support.
  • Cons: Quite an expensive gadget, expensive accessories, no Flash support.

Apple iPad Review

2 September 2010
  • Conclusion: Of course the iPad is not solely an entertainment device. It offers serious functionality such as such as simple-to-use email and a fine e-reader for, y'know, "books." At the same time, it lacks the goods under the hood to make it a viable alternative to a true "tablet computer," for mainstream work...
  • Pros: Big, gorgeous screen, Works with current iPhone/iPod touch apps, Up to a 64GB of memory (and 8+ hours of battery life) in a slim package, Movies, music, internet and more, big enough to share and intuitive to operate
  • Cons: How are we supposed to hold it for long periods of time?, Onboard sound is severely limited, No flash support, Charging is not as simple as it could be

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

LAPTOP Magazine
7 May 2010
  • Summary: 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.

Apple iPad (Wi-Fi + 3G)

PC Magazine
6 May 2010
  • Conclusion: The iPad is revolutionary, but it's not a true handheld device. That means you should think twice about whether you really need AT&T 3G before plunking down the extra cash for this version of the nation's best tablet.
  • Pros: Sleek design. Gorgeous, sharp, accurate touch screen. Improved iPod, Safari browser, photo, and e-mail apps. A plethora of downloadable apps. Flexible and affordable 3G service plans.
  • Cons: Costs $130 more than the Wi-Fi-only version. Some applications don't work over 3G. AT&T is the only U.S. carrier with 3G support. Watch our Apple iPad video review

Apple iPad 2010

CNET
4 May 2010
  • Summary: Thanks to its simple, iPhone-like user interface and responsive screen, Apple's iPad is the first tablet computer with the gadget x-factor. It won't replace your laptop for anything but the basics, but, for Web addicts, iPhone fans and technophobes, it's a tasty slice of gadget goodness
  • Pros: Huge capacitive touchscreen; Wi-Fi connectivity; attractive design; App Store is filling up with apps and games; compatible with iPhone apps; intuitive user interface; fast and responsive; easy to sync and back up.
  • Cons: Awkward to hold; heavy; no camera; no Flash support; limited multitasking capability; on-screen keyboard can't compare to a physical keyboard.

eReader Central
30 April 2010
  • Summary: The Apple iPad isn't an eBook reader, which makes it very hard to compare it to other eBook readers. It doesn't use e-ink technology, it's heavy, you can't read out of it in bright places, and the display will strain your eyes eventually.
  • Pros: Amazing design, Most intuitive interface yet, Full-color screen, Wi-Fi and 3G wireless, Will do just about anything
  • Cons: LCD display is hard to read from in bright places and will eventually strain your eyes, Battery lasts only ten hours, Heavy, Costs almost twice as much as the Kindle 2 or Nook, Additional 3G wireless fees apply (around $130)

  • Pros: Original, gorgeous design, Fast performance, Extremely long battery life, Superb touch capability
  • Cons: Very few ports, Attracts lots of fingerprints, No Flash support

  • Excerpt: The Apple iPad is out and all the reviews are hitting the web fast. We take a turn at the entry level 16GB WiFi model to see if it is really worth it.
