Disadvantages: Camera - picture quality not great
I do a bit of selling on EBay and with the run up to Christmas, I decided to go the whole hog and get rid of all those toys which were just gathering dust. Although my other half liked the extra cash coming in, he constantly moaned her could never get on the laptop as I was always on it. This is when the hints started to come 'well if I had an IPad you could use it for EBay' and then when my dad purchased one, it got even worse.
I eventually gave in and brought him the 32gb version at Christmas,
We paid £479 from Tesco's, however I think with the release of the IPad 3, the prices have now dropped to just under £400.
I must say, although I was dubious at first, I think its one of the best things her has persuaded me to buy, and it is rarely out of either one of our hands. If we haven't got it, we have downloaded some educational apps for my 4 year old and she loves playing with it (although I must admit, my other half looks like he is going to have a heart attack every time she is on it!!!)
Set up was really easy, but that may be due to the fact we already have 2 I-Phones and it was identical to setting them up. It also connected really easily to WiFi and once you have done it, it remembers you details every time so you don't have to annoyingly connect and log in every time
The battery life is for up to 10 hours, which may seem like a lot however I didn't realise how much me would use and I would say that 3months on, we still have to charge it up every other day.
For anybody that has used an IPhone, it is more or less identical except it is slimmer (oh and of course bigger). It has all the same functionality: you can check you emails, listen to your music on the IPod, browse the web and download endless apps.
The only downside I would say is the Camera, not once have we managed to take a picture that did not look grainy or blurred, my I-Phone 3GS actually takes better pictures that this.
Can be considered expensive but I think its really worth it, the only thing I would have done was hang fire on purchasing until the next version came out as I would have save £80
Summary: Fanastic, sleek, portable - its great!
