A Large iPhone/iPod Touch...,
This review is from: Apple iPad (first generation) MB292LL/A Tablet (16GB, Wifi) (Personal Computers)
Okay, this review is for us regular folks (who know and use technology but aren't real techies)...
First, I really do enjoy it. The screen size is wonderful and I love being able to just touch the screen to make things happen, as one can do with the iPhone and iPod Touch. and the batterly life is fab...
Having said that, I gotta say that the iPad is a large iPhone/iPod Touch minus the camaera, video, and calling capability. So, if you do things on either one of those devices and ever thought to your self, man, I wish this screen was larger, than this device is for you.
However, I defn would not purchase this thinking that you are going to get rid of your laptop or desktop PC. While I use mine frequently and do enjoy it, there are somethings that I just can't do as well on the iPad as I can do with my laptop.
now, the iPad VS the Samsung Galaxy Tab
yes, I have the tab also and like both for different reasons. The Galaxy Tab DOES have the camera and video capability and 3G comes standard. But, the biggest difference I noticed is the Galaxy has a 'Swipe feature that is REALLY cool and it is much cheaper. But, it does have a smaller screen and there isn't a way to convert my iTunes music so that I can listen to those files on this device.
