    Old news for some on here but it was my first play on one so I'm excited.

    Was at a cardiology meeting all morning and a collegue there had one and was taking notes on it using 'notes' which he then uploads directly to his appraisal and even Notes was an impressive app.

    Had a play over coffee and we were nattering away

    Its amazing how the brotherhood of giggling apple fanboys instantly brings friendship amongst strangers.

    So I only held it for about 10 minutes but it has already , genuinely blown me away and I had very very high expectations

    It is quite a bit heavier than I was expecting, but if anything that just makes it feel more classy and solid.

    Typing felt very natural and I had none of the lag I was execting and I'm a pretty quick typist at about 40 - 50 wpm

    There was no internet access there so didn't get online - he had iBooks which was just brilliant as was the marvel comic book app

    He had a musical score app that Thomas will just love

    The medical apps were also just astonishing

    I am now if anything more imaptient than I was yesterday

    I was totally ambivalent about them when they were first introduced, but after having a play with them...

    Definitely want one :)

    I hate to say "I told you so!".









    No, I don't really hate it.

    I told you so!

    He said he had it with him all the time , and I can genuinely see me doing exactly the same - hadn'y thought of using it as a medical resource but the apps are designed to be used by docs at work - and although some of them are iPhone apps as they are predominantly text based this really doesn't matter as I can put up with slightly pixelated text - haven't used them on the iPhone as they are just too small to be really usable

    Hmm of the top of my head I'd say about 10 inches long and about 8 inches wide - but thats just off the top of my head - I suspect there are much better stats online
