The iPad has landed (plus the traditional unboxing)


That's one happy nerd right there. Yes, I gave in and bought an iPad. I honestly do believe this contraption has a significant role in the future of publishing books, magazines, music, videos, and games. Plus it's a fascinating mobile device that manages to be more than a giant iPod Touch. Just to make it clear: Yes, I'm a long time Apple user (my first Apple was a IIc). No I'm not a fanboy. I've owned and built PCs before. Yes, so far, the iPad is everything it's cracked up to be. But first an unboxing...
 



So there you have it. The iPad has landed. I've been busy downloading apps and reading comics since I got the thing. A little disappointed by the local app store, but there are ways around that. I'll tell you more when I have time to post!

Hi. I hope you'd write an entry on the features and benefits of the iPad. I'd like to buy but I don't know what the hype is about haha. I'm too lazy to read the other websites but I'm sure your blog will be easier to read than the other gadget-related blogs. Hope you'll write a review soon. Thanks!

Very soon, Cathie! iBooks and iWork and the Philippines app store all went up recently so I'm squeezing them into the review, but I'm babbling now...
