PostSubject: iPad 2 anyone??   Fri Mar 04, 2011 10:47 pm

For Christmas this last year I recieved an Apple ipod touch 4. I absolutely love it and it goes everywhere I go. I asked for it so I could listen to music while I go for my walks. But I use it for so much more. I have been snooping around the Apple site and was dreaming about saving up for an iPad but now this week they brought out the newer faster version. I have a vision problem and so I was thinking that the ipad would be easier to read as it is bigger.
Does anyone have the original ipad or planning to buy the newer one? I also love that they have a protective cover for the new one and wonder if they will fit on the older ones.
Still dreaming!!

I just got an iPad for Christmas, so I don't think I'll be getting the new one anytime soon. Although, I did joke with Tim that now he'd have to get me the new one since mine is now outdated. Laughing I love it and use it ALL the time. Kelsey has the iPod touch 4 also, and we always say hers is just a mini iPad, except that it also has a camera (the original iPad doesn't). So, if you like what you have, you would probably like the iPad. The newer version is even slimmer, so probably very lightweight. They do sell protective covers for the original iPad, not sure if the ones for the new version fit the old one. I got a special case for mine so, I can stand it up if I want to watch a movie, or elevate it into a more comfortable typing position. Put it on your next wish list. Wink

Thanks Pam, now I want one even more. I'll be saving up. Maybe you and I could do facetime on the ipods. That would be fun.

That would be a lot of fun. I'm sure Kelsey would let me use her iPod, especially since I let the kids use the iPad all the time. grinsmiley

This video will make you want it even more! lol




I admit it looks really really nice and heard it cost $500... pretty good for a tablet.
Even though I like Apple and own an ipod 4th Gen, I am an Android girl myself. Using the HTC Incredible... it's amazing how much I can customize my phone. I mean, it's like I have a totally different style and look for work, for the weekend, for entertainment... or my basic default. I can do a lot of multitasking. I love HTC and their Sense user interface. They have come out with the HTC Flyer Tablet which I wish I could have. I really love the stylus, how you can basically take screen captures of anything, and make notes, then share that. I like to change things around, and HTC lets me do that. Here is video of it:




HTC Flyer's magic pen transforms anything. It can draw, paint, write, and even retouch pictures. It can be a highlighter for the reader (and by the way all your highlights will be collated when you're done). The HTC Flyer can link audio to the notes you take for work, and it can add voiceover to a storybook you're drawing up at home. Work or play, it's magic for the whole family.

Marilyn, did you end up getting the iPad2? Smile

If I could I would really like to get the HTC Flyer



I really really really like the fact that you can use a pen with it. I would feel more comfortable keeping my information in a tablet than in my phone because of the fact that there are more chances of losing your phone or damaging your phone vs. a table that would just be at home or places with WiFi.

Right now I have some apps on my phone that have confidential information (bank accounts, health records, passwords, etc), it's great to have that info at your fingertips... but it is also a little scary thinking what would happen if I lost my phone.

ALTHOUGH... I do have it set to wipe out if it ever gets stolen or something lol And I have also protected those apps as well.

Still, it's nice to see those apps in a tablet (bigger screen) and get a feeling of being a little more protected.

The iPad 2 only became available in Canada on Friday. The lineups were huge. I will be waiting for awhile to get one, have to save up first but hopefully I'll get one soon.

I do have a cell but I have to admit all this new stuff coming out baffles my mind. It has happened so fast that I will never catch; and on somethings not sure if I want to. I'm a simple type person I guess. HeeHee

I don't really see the sense of a iPad. I'd rather have a laptop...

I guess they have basically generic pad covers now. My daughter got a new iPod, and I was able to buy cover sheeting at Wal-Mart. I dunno one from the other. I just know she took $200 of the fast-food money she made to buy it.

That iPad looks cool though. I'd like one myself, to be honest. You can watch shows and everything from what I've heard. Her iPod shows vids, but I dunno about movies. Technology moves so fast, the last one that I bought her is a nerdPad now. Blue

I do have to say that I am jealous of the iPad people though because one Calendar app I like, "Pocket Informant" looks amazing in iPad.



I loved it on my Blackberry but I don't like it on Android Blue

I am also jealous that Ipad has the Netflix app which makes it easy to watch movies! lol
