There are a lot of people who make a living out of reviewing the latest gadgets and being extremely harsh on them. Apple iPad either hasn’t faced those critics yet or it’s so powerful that has left the critics speechless. The iPad has received glowing reviews from various sources. It seems Apple has so far aced it with the iPad. While the device is not perfect and could have been much better, all the positive reviews that the iPad has gathered should not be good news for Apple competitors.
Here is an early review of the iPad courtesy of USA Today (it may make a believer out of you):
The first generation iPad seems to have convinced gaming and e-book junkies. At least if we go by the early reviews. The sad news is that many top gadget blogs did not receive a review unit from Apple. So was Apple hoping to control these early reviews by snubbing top gadget review blogs?
If you have picked up an iPad, you have already seen the iPad store. There are plenty of apps available for the iPad already. You can always go beyond what Apple is offering by jailbreaking your iPad as well. Apple may be a bit controlling and has some bad habits, but it has done a decent job with the iPad at this point. Considering that the iPad is a first generation device, Apple has so far passed those early tests. Of course, we will have to wait for all reviews to come in before declaring Apple iPad a winner.
Your turn: have you received your iPad? How’s been your experience with it so far?
