The New iPad


Upgraded my iPad 1 to the new iPad this weekend.  As always, the packaging from Apple is a marketing marvel.

As you unravel the packaging you understand what Jobs means when he says “In simplicity, there is sophistication …”

Slimmer and lighter than my iPad one, the new tablet feels good in the hands.

Hooking up and connecting is a cinch as with all Apple products.  Charge up the battery, connect to wi-fi and you are in business!

The screen resolution is an amazing upgrade from the Gen 1 tablet.  For the brilliant and crisp retina display alone, the upgrade is worth it.  The 4G network is another great upgrade for lightning fast page loading and downloads.

I loaded the tablet with some great apps. Here’s the list so far:
Facebook
Twitter
Hootsuite
Zite
Pandora
Wall Street Journal
Bloomberg
Stitcher
Yelp
Flipboard
Crackle
500px

And of course, WordPress to blog!

Highly recommended!
