So…Did You Get an iPad?
I didn’t! (Not for a lack of wanting one, though.)
Apparently lines for Apple’s new gadget were astronomical on Saturday, when it was first released. People are going crazy over Steve Jobs’s new creation! I can’t wait to play with one. Do you remember when the iPhone first came out–after all of the lines were over, of course–and peope would just go to the Apple store to fiddle around with the phone? I feel as if things will be the same for the iPad.
If you’ve been living under a rock for the last few months, let me fill you in: the iPad is basically a giant iPod Touch: it has Wi-Fi capability and does everything an iPod Touch does. It has applications, games, programs, etc., all in a 9.7 inch LED display screen. Oh, and one more thing, it has 3G capability as well–something the iPod Touch does not offer. Naturally, you’d have to buy a plan, but who cares? You’d get internet everywhere! Awesome.
My only issue with this device is that it does not have Flash capability, and with so many websites these days operating on Flash, it might become problematic for the iPad. However, it doesn’t seem as if people are using the iPads in lieu of a computer, so maybe it won’t be such a big deal after all. And for a $499 price tag, it’s much less expensive than a nice computer, anyway.
So are you gonna get one? Will you wait for a second generation version of it? Ooooh I bet playing games on it will be fun! I know, I know. I’m a child.
