So yes. I got myself a shiny iPad.
And yes – I think it's THAT GOOD!
True, I'm excited, it's a new gadget, but there are by far more things that I like about it so far than things I do not like. I predict it will become a strong productivity tool for my daily activities.
Here are my first impression notes, a longer review will soon follow:
- Amazing design
- Amazing battery life
- Pure fun
- Performance… I can't explain how fast this thing works
The not so obvious:
- Keyboard is so good it allows me to type faster than with my netbook (which I'm definitely getting rid of)
- Emails, internet, AppStore, Notes, Youtube are all working very well, and the integration between the apps is surprisingly good.
- Many productivity apps that are mostly well made, polished and stable: todo lists, notes, analytics, presentations, etc.
- Reading news/blogs etc. was never so much fun before.
- So easy to jailbreak (what? who said that???)
And I know, no multitasking yet, no flash, no camera. For now I did not find any problems without all of them, but I'm sure I will have much more to share within a couple of days/weeks.
Potential for true love? You bet.
