iPad Review


You are probably wondering if you should spend $599 or more on iPad. Does the iPad essentially revolutionize the concept of a tablet computer?
The iPad is the newest device in Apple's family. Apple announced on January 27th, 2010 launch of an entirely new class of computer - something what could be the most significant product launch in its history.
It looks that nobody is quite sure how to categorize the iPad. It is something in between a traditional laptop computer and pocket computers like the iPod Touch. In other words, the iPad is something in between its iPhone and wildly successful MacBook line. It is a larger and faster version of its iPod Touch.
The build quality of iPad is excellent and nothing feels cheap. The aluminum back feels great under the finger. The device weight is 1.5 pounds and it is comfortable to hold it at most angles.
There is an audio jack connector for headphones, and a microphone for apps that need it. The speaker is on the bottom of the device and the maximum speaker volume is too soft for me (I prefer to use the headphones). If you wish to adjust volume, the volume button is accessible and active whenever the iPad is playing something.
Beside the standard 3.5mm audio jack, the only external connector is the proprietary Apple connector. A number of accessories can be connected to that connector, and this is the only wired way to connect iPad to the outside world.
The most of iPad surface is taken up by a 9.7-inch, capacitive, multitouch LED-backlit display surrounded by a glossy black bezel. The display is sharp and colorful with a resolution of 1024x768. The contrast and colors are very nice and the brightness distribution is very stable regardless of the viewing angle. The glossy glass panel in front of the display both protects it and enhances contrast. Such glossy displays are notorious for reflections, but I didn't find iPad reflections to be an issue. The iPad is easy to tilt a few degrees if reflections are bothersome.
Apple gives the iPad a really fast processor. The iPad packs Apple's custom, PA Semi-designed 1GHz A4 system-on-a-chip -- a single Cortex A8 core coupled with a PowerVR SGX GPU. Things open fast, scroll fast, load fast. Surfing the Web is much better than on the tiny iPhone screen.
The battery is a built in rechargeable Lithium-polymer battery that will give you up to ten hours of usage.
You operate the iPad by tapping and dragging on the glass with your fingers, just as on the iPhone. Few years ago it was hard to imagine that you can operate computer without help of the mouse.
The iPad runs iPhone OS 3.2- basically, it is an iPad-optimized version of the current iPhone OS, adjusted for the iPad's larger screen and new apps. The use of the iPhone OS and its clever data-entry scheme ( virtual keyboard, multitouch gestures ) turns the iPad into much more usable device than any Windows-based tablet PC we have seen.



Read Kindle Books on the iPad


If you spend a lot of time sitting on trains or planes, you probably want to kick back with a book, or a magazine. The iPad is the best media device of Apple's three gadgets (including iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch) to read books and magazines.
You can download and read books from Apple iBooks or from Amazon Kindle store.
The iBooks store currently has about 30,000 free books and about 60,000 books from most major publishers. Every book in the store allows you to download a free sample (sometimes more than 50 pages long) Price of books is between $9.99 and $14.99.

Kindle store, of course, offers a far larger selection of books than iBooks with more than 620,000 paid and free books including the latest best sellers and new releases. Books at Kindle store are less expensive and their price is typically less than $9.99. The Kindle app is optimized for the iPad, providing users the ability to read Kindle books using this easy-to-use interface. The real advantage of the Kindle app is that you can read and sync books with more devices. Amazon Whispersync enables you to automatically syncs your last page read, bookmarks, notes, and highlights across all of your devices, so you can pick up right where you left off no matter what device you are reading on. Therefore, you can start reading a book on the iPad at home, for example, and then continue reading on your iPod Touch while you are waiting in line at the airport. Kindle store gives you free book samples; so you can read the first chapter for free before you decide to buy it. Then, books you've purchased are wirelessly transferred to the iPad via Amazon's servers.
