I have had the Apple iPad Wi-Fi 16GB since it was released in the UK on May 29th 2010. I remember the date exactly because it was my birthday and it was bought for me as a birthday present. I wanted one because I had bought into all the hype....it was a gadget that I probably didn't "need", but one which I really really wanted! And yes, I am spoilt and so what I wanted.....I got!
In case you haven't been on the planet for the last year I'll just briefly describe what an iPad is. An IPad is basically a handheld mobile computer device which is really a cross between an iPhone 4 and an Apple Mac. It has a number of uses, which I endeavor to discuss in detail, but largely my rationale for buying the iPad was to have mobile internet access, to have access to apps, and also for its multi-media potential. Essentially it is a gadget - but it has the potential to be a very convenient and handy gadget!
The back of the iPad is silver and has the traditional Apple icon in it's centre which lights up when the iPad is in use. On it's side there are a number of small switches and ports, the function of which I will discuss later. These switches / ports are very discrete and so they don't get in the way when I'm holding it.The iPad is 24.1cm x 18.5cm x 0.9cm in size and weighs just 600g . Having used the tablet over the past year, I have discovered that it's size really is one of it's main bonuses as just slips into my bag and it really isn't a hassle to carry around (like a laptop can be at times). It's a nice size to hold, being a similar size (although heavier!) than holding a sheet of A4 paper.
The iPad looks very stylish and I think that this is one of the reasons that it has been so popular. It was indeed a big draw for me as I liked the idea of "posing" with my iPad and looking tech-savvy and modern. I don't know if I achieved that image, but I gave it my best shot!
The screen is 24.6cm diagonally from corner to corner and has a high resolution at 1024 x 768 pixel resolution at 132 ppi. The screen looks very shiny and glossy and this jumps out at me every time I look at it.
