    iPad 2

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z_I9OEV6_Ak < < Official iPad 2 video I’m very tempted by this! Like many others out there the “weight” of electronics are a big factor for me. I can just about lift my current laptop a few inches off my lap with great difficulty. Although I know iPads are as noway as strong technology wise as laptops having an ipad for bed use would be much more practical than having a laptop weighing my legs down. Anybody else tempted?

    Yes…….So very tempted.

    Been to two different Apple Stores to have them demonstrated.
    The ultimate in Touchscreen Technology. Always on, instant
    internet access, multi touch-pinch to zoom in, perfect music and video player,
    camera, wifi, e-mail, e-books, audiobooks, thousands of apps from iStore, wireless
    printing, superb new features Facetime and Airplay that you see
    on the current adverts.

    They are though horrendously expensive or I would have bought one.

    Actually they are very rugged and do compare completely favourably to
    a laptop. They are a ten inch and updated version of the iPod touch. I have
    dropped that many times and it just will noy break.

    They are so successful fifteen other manufactorers have brought out
    simlar touchscreen tablets at £ 400 – £ 700 pounds.

    Wish I could afford it. When my laptop goes this is the answer rather than
    another laptop.

    If you cannot afford the iPad or the 15 clones……

    There are a whole range of Android Tablet computers that
    do about 90 % of what the iPad does. They cost from £ 60 to £ 150.

    Not able to afford an iPad I put in a silly bid on e-bay for a 7 ” Eken
    Android tablet and was amazed to get one. It surfs internet, zooms,
    e-mail, playey music and video and has quite a few apps you download
    from the Androis Market Place. The Android operating system though is
    “Open Source” and anyone can write apps for it. Apple keep it all
    to themselves and that is why it is expensive.

    Asda currently have a 7″ Android tablet computer for £ 99.

    They do a lot of the functions but just not as spectacularily.

    Here is the list of other touch screen Tablet Computers :-

    Blackberry Playbook
    Acer Iconia Tab
    Motorola Xoom
    HP Touchpad
    Samsung Galaxy
    Asus Transformer
    Dell Streak
    Binatone Homesurf
    Viewsonic Viewpad
    Hannspree Hanspad
    LG Optima Pad
    Archos 7
    HTL Flyer
    Creative Zoom
    Commtive Linx

    It shows the success of the iPad how
    many imitators have appeared in just 18 months.

    I bought an iPad2 back in May. I went for the 16gb wifi model which was £400.

    It’s perfect for me as it’s light enough to hold and keep on your lap. I have a desktop PC which I use for more intense stuff, but for browsing the net around the house this is perfect.

    I am so undecided about getting a tablet [prolly an iPad] or a kindle … I am so rooted at home that just being at my iMac is so straight forward and it means I can type .

    In the future when a dvd drive can be usb’d, I might consider it esp for lazing in be watching tv or a dvd/film, if the screen could handle day light better, might go as far as using it as an ebook too.

    But for now my trusty iMac and I will carry on :D
