iPad Arrives - Cool Platform

Fed Ex delivered the newest 3G 64 gig IPad today - ahead of the development tools and accessories we ordered.

All I can say is - this device is amazing and awesome combined (thanks 'bachelorettes' Jillian (my neighbour) from last year and what's her name from this year for the descriptive words).

What made an impression on me was the size - or lack of it. The device is running at about the size of a baseball cap yet it's highly functional and easy to use. While I wait for delivery of the 3G SIM card, I managed to connect to my WiFi network with ease. Running through the Internet - I must say it is a shame that Apple can't put their ego away and allow the support of Flash. Puts me in mind of a little kid in the play ground refusing to give up his pager that he's had all of his like while all the other kids are surfing the web on their smart phones.

At least Safari supports HTML 5 - although I did find some bugs with this Safari Mobile that Apple still has to fix.

Never the less - the iPad is waaaaaay cool. Our development team is waiting with baited breath now that they've heard I've received mine. We've got some way cool GPS based apps ready to load and try on this truly game changing device.




Apple does it again.
