Seven days after the special press event in San Francisco where the iPad 3 was unveiled, the reviews have began pouring in. With the embargo lifted, various top tech and general news sites have unleashed their hands-on opinions on the device, and we have a roundup of the top reviews from the tech pundits we know and love right here.
Yup! you read that right ! iPad 2 is here already, and it has been reviewed extensively, with a bit of humor attached. This has to be the best thing you might have ever seen from Apple.
We just stumbled upon a video on YouTube by 1938digital in which “fake” Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer reviews the latest revolution of Apple in his very own trademark style. In his review, Ballmer explains why the iPad sucks, and how a new Microsoft Tablet with Windows 7, Windows Mobile, Azure, the Cloud and God knows what else is going to rule this market.
Apple today has announced the much awaited international release date, and price plans for both the WiFi and 3G version of iPad. Customers in Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Spain, Switzerland and UK can get their iPads officially on Friday, May 28. International Pre-orders for iPad in the above mentioned countries will begin from May 10th.
We have finally got our hands on the iPad the other day. The experience so far has been nothing short of spectacular. I won't go as far as saying that iPad has replaced my netbook or desktop PC for that matter. But it has certainly created a new category among all the portable gadgets I own, and I now use it for some light gaming, web browsing, Youtubing and social networking (facebook app for iPhone on iPad sucks though) on the go.
There has been a lot of talk lately about the issues related to the iPad’s WiFi problem. Some users were complaining about the WiFi connection on iPad doing some crazy things like not letting them join hotspots, and providing weak signal strength. Apple has today acknowledged all these issues and has recommended some fixes as follows.
First of iPad reviews are now popping up on the Internet. From Wall Street Journal, to USA Today, to PC World, to New York Times, all have great things to say about the product. One thing however most of them have agreed upon is the fact that it is not really a notebook/netbook replacement, but rather a great companion which could do tasks like email, web browsing, music, videos, book reading and so on with great ease.
