iPad is Coming to Canada on May 28, 2010

With the big buzz about Apple iPad before it came out, do you think now that it's officially out in the US, it lives to its expectations?

Apple iPad Case (CASE-ZML MC361ZM/A)Well, YES and NO, you were probably not looking for that answer, but that's the nature of this slick device.

Let's review some of the good, the bad and the ugly - ok, "ugly" and "iPad" are not synonymous. So let's just stick to the good and the bad! ;)

Well overall, it lives up to its expectations from the amazing slick look, speed in accessing apps, battery life and overall versatility. If you were thinking it's going to replace your laptop or desktop, it ain't!

Ok, let's get into some of the details:

If you like your iPod Touch, than you will definitely like what the iPad has to offer because of its size and functionality.

The iPad touch screen is phenomenal with its crisp quality and easy to read at various angles. It will leave some finger print marks on the screen though.

The iPad battery will give you between 7 to 8 hours of full use may be slightly more, which is great!

The over-sized icons on the screen seem to be a waste of space as well as the distance between the icons and excessive margins around the sides.

The inclusion of the iWorks utilities gives it some functionality of a laptop. However, it doesn't replace your laptop if you will be doing more than just accessing email and little word processing. Note that the iWorks app does not come loaded with the iPad, you will have to buy it separately.

The iPad is great for browsing the web, however, if a lot that you do on your iPad will require Flash technology, then you may be disappointed because of the lack of Flash support on the iPad.

The iPad has no webcam as most of the netbooks and laptops have today, so that may be an issue for you. However, the device is great to watch YouTube videos because of its crisp quality.

I'm sure Apple will be looking at addressing the above issues in their next generation iPad. We will have to wait and see.
