My first iPad

I am not an Apple fanboy, but I’m not a total hater either. In fact, I have been the proud owner of various iPod Shuffles over the course of the past 8 years. The Shuffle is my music player of choice particularly because of the little clip that is perfectly designed for listening to music while working out.

All that being said, I wasn’t interested in shelling out $500-$600 for a tablet. Fortunately I didn’t have to because I ended up winning a iPad 3 32GB version last month at work. Overall I am impressed with the product. I had used an older version of the Barnes and Noble Nook as well as a Blackberry Palybook. Each of those had positives going for them; the Nook is slightly more flexible because of the Android OS and the Playbook offers greater security and connectivity for office email.

The iPad, on the other hand, blends greater usability and a more integrated experience. The Retina display is nice but I can’t comment on its improvement from the previous iPad 2. I have already downloaded a few apps both for home and work to test. With a few weeks under my belt, I am looking forward to exploring the iPad further.
