2 weeks now and I absolutely love it. This past Friday evening, I started out having a call using Skype (I have a SkypeIn number and a world subscription). The iPad has speakers and a microphone built in. I didn’t have to use the headphones.
What else though. Here goes a partial list:
- Netflix. I stream movies to it.
- Email. I check mail first thing in the morning with it. No need to go down and get my laptop. The iPad sits nice on the bedside table.
- Facebook. Sure, the app is an iPhone one. But, it works well.
- Tweetdeck. For Twitter activities on 3 different accounts.
- Pandora. A nice new iPad app.
- iBooks, Apple’s book reader
- Kindle. YEP, there’s a soft Kindle app for buying and reading amazon ebooks.
- Live radio via specific apps for 920WGKA and WSB. I also have iheartradio and ooTunes apps for many more stations.
- Kayak, for travel
- GoToMeeting client
- Discovery Channel Videos
- ABC shows
- Solitaire (who would have thought)
OK, there’s lots more. It is more than a toy now. Now quite where I need to live for work. Better than the iPhone for most internet things. Even a better phone when at the desk.
I’d recommend this to anyone.
