A tablet for work and play-the iPad

After months of rumours, Apple announced their new iPad. Like a big iPhone (without a camera or phone), the 10” touchscreen is like a normal ‘tablet’ PC injected with Apple DNA. So it’s smooth, shiny and sexy, pleasing to the eye and the touch, easy to pick up and connect – why is it being panned by some critics?

The main reasons are that it seems too big to walk around with, not of any noticeable business use and just a £500 boy’s toy or glorified e-book. However, the first iPhone wasn’t exactly good at what it did, but with the App Store it became a global sensation, so who’s to say a ‘killer’ app isn’t just around the corner and the same will happen again. 140,000 apps. And counting.iPad will work with almost all of the apps designed for the iPhone. Just download them from the App Store. Or, if you already have apps for your iPhone or iPod touch, you can sync them to iPad from your Mac or PC. Then run them in their original size or expand them to fill the screen.
