Well the ipad I am reviewing is actually my mums but she is so hopelessly untechnical that I had to set it up and teach her to use it and so I know enough to review.

Firstly, the product itself is beautiful, as with all Apple products, they are minimalistic, perfectly crafted and neat to look at and touch. Due to its rather large screen, everything looks good. Bigger is better afterall.

I was warned against the iPad though because I already have an iPhone 4, so I saw no point into getting my own iPad because it would be like using apps but on a bigger screen and why pay ridiculous amounts for that?!

Just as with all of the i-series, to set it up, just sync the device with a usb into a computer and off you go, easy as that.

The iPad itself is slim and neat so I can see why business people like to use it on trains and for meetings and such, however I felt that after a while in my hands, the device put a bit of strain on my wrists so its best to rest it on your lap or use the great smart covers which also fold to become a stand as the weight is about over half a kilo and for my tiny girly wrists, its not great after awhile.

The update of the ipad 2 is much like the update from iphone 3gs to the 4, as the ipad 2 has a camera on the front AND the back and "Facetime", an apple-style skype to Apple to Apple users. Also it has a sleeper on/off button and volume buttons around the casing like the iphones as well.


It also films in HD but I felt a bit awkward holding a massive screen as a camera when filming, because when outdoors, I just think it screams "Mug me!".


Anyway, in my opinion, if you do not have the iphone, get an ipad so you can experience Apple's amazingness, however if you do, its just exactly what you have, minus the phone calls and with a bigger screen, so is it really that worth it?!
