iPAD – A Quick Review

Design-wise, there actually is not much to review on iPad. There is only the 9.7 inch, 1024 x 768 multi-touch LED backlit screen that takes a lot of the majority of the iPad’s surface. But quite honestly, that is exactly what many people like with regards to Apple’s products. Minimalist, sleek, yet still extremely functional. But we will proceed to that afterwards. Let us first examine the iPad, from the exterior.

Unboxing the iPad

It is just a splendor to observe, without doubt. Even though un-boxing the unit may be the least splendid thing about the gadget, few individuals can state that much consideration was not given to the way the gadget is packaged. Given that it’s an Apple product, you cannot question the simple fact that a lot of time were put in over how the gadget would likely appear when packed. And customers aren’t let down for Apple’s thoughtfulness.

The presentation is outstanding. It complements the overall attractiveness of the gadget. For beginners,, the box of the iPad carries a feel of MacBook Air in it. If you liked MacBook Air or other MacBook products, you will definitely fall for the box of the iPad. It’s so nice, it is easy to hang it on a frame and showcase it in your lounge room.

Moving forward, within the package is the iPad itself, a thin info packet, that you just would possibly not use at all simply because even 2-year-old children can easily comprehend the simplicity of the device, a wall power battery charger, as well as the well-known USB 30-pin dock connector. For those who have opened any Apple products before, you might be acquainted with these things.

How iPad’s Size and Weight Measure Up

The closest comparison you can get is Amazon’s Kindle DX. Not identical, but nearly there. iPad measures 9.56 inches in height, 7.47 inches in width and .05 inch in thickness. It weighs 1.5 pounds for the WiFi model, 1.6 for the WiFi plus 3G model. In comparison, Kindle DX stands at 10.4 inches, is 7.2 inches wide, .38 inch thick, and weighs at 1.2 pounds.

For a device that does more than the Kindle DX does – if it alone is the point of comparison, the thickness of the iPad is forgivable, acceptable in fact. If the size and function of the iPad were to be used as parameters for judging whether or not iPad is better than Kindle DX, it is not a stretch to say that it is a killer. With its thoughtful eBook reading applications and the diverse selection of eBooks available for use with iPad, many say Kindle will soon be replaced with iPad.

Regardless of its ground-breaking thickness, a lot of people still seem to whine about the .5 inch thickness of iPad. For sure, it might feel uncomfortable and may prove more difficult to handle in one hand for a few hours than Kindle DX, but thinking about how and what the gadget does, this really is nothing more than nitpicking.

The Verdict

Very well, it is evident. There isn’t any other device available in the market which has what iPad has. Which does what iPad really does. The glossy glass face alone is really a winner. And we have not at all even discussed about the features of the device.
