Those who have preordered Apple iPad would have had some hands on with the device.All customers who have preordered Apple iPad would have got their iPad by this time and ofcourse celebrations of Easter with the new iPad.
This article will summarize some the initial user comments
First comment immediately after unboxing the iPad is that some felt its little heavy as like other HP notebooks.But the pack was initially having all the accesories along with the keyboard.But ofcourse iPad is really sleek and weight less in the tablet computer series
Some felt uncomfortable in holding the iPad.But may after days pass by and because of its features comfortness would really not matter.
If complete multitasking is enabled in iPad then there are many chances that laptop might get replaced with iPad to a great extent.But for now there is no effective multitasking in iPad though there are plans to include the same in future.
With iPad its now very easy to carry your entire reading library wherever you go like as you do with music and videos with iPod/iPhone.
Greatest comment is that users who have purchased iPad feels that its really fast and browsing is really made easy with single command and swipe transitions are also really good and effective than iTouch.
With iPad not supporting Adobe flash and with some websites not reliable in small netbook screens some felt difficult to view and read contents in iPad on some of the websites.
Though iPad can be used more or less like a laptop when viewing movies,reading books and playing games.But there is a really difficulty in using word,excel or powerpoint for classroom and business purposes.The problem is that there is no local storage of files.You should mail the documents and open the same from the mailing applications.So iPad is now really very useful in receiving all sorts of files like word,excel,video files,e books but not very comfortable in doing a new one
Easy synchronisation of data with iPhone ,iPod and iTune
Some users have commented that its now easier to sleek,thin and less weighing device than to carry a netbook.But it all depends upon the task you do with the netbook.If you are mostly engaged with surfing emails,reading books,sending and receiving mails etc then iPad is a great choice.
About the keyboard – Many feels that its easy to type with the virtual QWERTY keyboards and comfortable than all the smartphones.
