Apple Ipad, is it worth it?

Recently Apple released their “IPad”, a device that looks like an oversized IPhone.

This first release comes with a 1GHz Processor, which should be plenty for most users as the IPad currently cannot run more than one application at once. Hopefully future upgrades of the software will allow the user to run multiple applications.

The 9.7″ Display is a huge benefit for those who travel, enabling you to comfortably watch a movie or read an e-book while on the move.

Apple haven’t forgotten about the internet, having bundled the IPad with Wifi by default and 3G as an extra. It supports GPRS, UMTS, HSDPA and edge. The Wifi adapter supports a/b/g/n. They have also included GPS and Bluetooth 2.1 with this device. Safari is included as per usual with apple devices. The IPad also has an email client bundled with it.

Unfortunately, there is no built-in camera, nor an expansion slot to plug one in! This is definatly a big minus factor, as most users would enjoy video streaming or video chatting with their friends.

There is also no slot for a memory card, so upgrading the memory is not possible. Although it does come  with either 16Gb, 32Gb or 64Gb of memory builtin.

It has a SIM card tray, but apparently doesn’t support calls or sms’s.. Only uses the sim card for internet connectivity. If someone knows of a hack or app that allows calling/texting please email me..

You can expect to get the IPad for between $400 and $900.

EDIT I found an Interesting article here.

  1. It will be interesting to see what happens when the Joojoo is launched. If it’s not buggy, there’s a whole lot more features that make it compelling.

  2. The Joojoo looks very good, except it has less disk space (Hopefully you can swap the SSD with a larger capacity one! 🙂 ) Built-in camera is very attractive, plus the usb port which will allow you to plug extra peripherals (Keyboard, memory stick? )
    Nice one. Can’t wait for it to be released!

  3. Cool blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere?

    A design like yours with a few simple adjustements would really make my blog
    stand out. Please let me know where you got your design. Appreciate it
