it will have an airplane mode won't it?
They'll be sure to include a way to turn off the 3g/wifi radios for sure, not that they need to since the moaning about interference is just rubbish :) but still I'm sure it'll be thereOriginally Posted by britchick, post: 193116
any thoughts about holding this thing to use it? it's going to be a little to big to balance while you type? and if it's flat on your lap you're not going to be able to see very well. I was thinking of using it as a family web surfer that instantly switches on. will i be able to print from it?
i guess it's what will i use it for? i think i'm talking myself round to a macbook instead
I'd say go with the macbook You'll be able to use it for more. Plus when you've got it you have a nice OSX machine and then you will have time to save/decide whether to go with the iPad when it's 2nd version/revision is out
I'm betting the 2nd one will have a camera and the 'base' model will probably have a bigger memory too
It really does depend what you'll use it for, you're absolutely right.Originally Posted by britchick, post: 193332
I do think that everyone will be surprised how much more can be done on the ipad than is currently expected though. For some things, a touch interface is simply a lot more intuitive and immediate than moving a mouse pointer around.
As a family web surfer, place to show off photos, write some email and so on, it will be superb and unmatched IMHO.
I know we've said all this before, but if you look at the Apple development kit for this thing, there's a new version coming out almost every week with more things in it. I really believe that they're improving the OS to be a "full" computer os but very carefully made to be spot on for mobile devices. (This is why windows mobile looks so very very clunky and old next to an iphone)
you'll have to explain what you mean there?Originally Posted by britchick, post: 193350
I mean I'm sure the upgrade process will be similar to the current iphone yep if that's what you meant?
