Best Gift Ever: Apple iPad 32GB with Wi-Fi & 3G

Apple 32GB iPad With Wi-Fi & 3G

First Apple gave us the iPod; then it was the iPhone. And now with its highly-anticipated, much blogged about tablet, the iPad, Apple is once again changing the way we work and play. Beyond its amazingly thin size, the iPad features an ultra-sharp touchscreen and incredible features that will let you discover apps like never before.

Introducing the Apple iPad. It's the best way to experience the web, email, photos, and video. All on a big, beautiful Multi-Touch screen. With just the touch of a finger.

I must thank my sweet hubby for this wonderful Christmas gift, the iPad. He is so full of surprises. It was something I didn't expect, but he knew I wanted one. I'm posting here on my art blog because I will be using it mainly for my design and multimedia. So far I am getting used to it and finding my way around the apps and programs. When I start using new apps, I will post my reviews and let you know what I think.

My Thoughts
What I like is the sleek and thin design of the iPad which makes it very portable with touchscreen ability. I also love the variety of apps available for the iPad. Streaming of videos online were fast.   It's like a netbook almost, but the iPad doesn't have the full capability as my Tablet PC or laptop. If you're just into lite web surfing, listening to music, watching videos, ebooks, or other basic stuff, this is an awesome gadget. I wish it would be powerful enough to create animations and complex graphics. It still doesn't beat my old Tablet PC. The only thing that troubled me was that if I want to add my own music or videos, I need to sync it every time.

- long battery life
- built-in speaker and microphone
- huge selection of apps to choose from

- lightweight and sleek design
- fast photo viewing in any angle
- similar to iPhone or iTouch
- touchscreen feature
- WiFi capability

- can't really multitask
- no camera option
- no HDMI output
- no SD card built-in
- GPS not supported
- Flash video not supported
- battery is built in and it would be a hassle to replace

Brandon wants to see what's inside too.

I saw the logo on the bag and I made a first guess: iPad!!! I looked inside the bag and found this.
