This is the first time I've tried to blog on a train with my iPad and blu tooth keyboard. It's a bit weird as theres a slight keyboard delay and the t key was sticking causing unwanted repetition. The keyboard case I got for the iPad is generally excellent and makes the iPad itself far more productive.
Tablets , by their nature , are good for browsing and watching and research but more difficult to actually do productive work on. While still getting used to the idea of not having a mouse but touching the screen for mousey type actions, I must say the iPad is very usable.
Charlie brooker described it as a "content deiver device" and a "twattometer" before deciding he could do without one.
I'm still in the very early stages of learning about it, but I only have an iPad 2 and its fast , responsive and easy to use. I have lots of complaints and narks about it but I have used it more in the month that I have had it that I did the Advent Vega in the 15 months that I had that.
It's an excellent e-reader and there are lots of free books avaiable , then you have Garage Band the app that persuded me to get one.
It's still early days but so far I am very impressed.
Just need Apple to accept the have faults and rectify them instead of pretending everything is perfect.
Seriously I would recommend one of these to anyone.
