Default iPad review

I have been trying to get some information about the new iPad and just came across this review. Looks promising.

It appears that no iPads have been released for review yet, so we are left to deal with the jokesters. Mostly — David Pogue gives his first impressions on his NY Times blog.

One key paragraph:
“… it's too early to draw any conclusions. Apple hasn't given the thing to any reviewers yet, there are no iPad-only apps yet (there will be), the e-bookstore hasn't gone online yet, and so on. So hyperventilating is not yet the appropriate reaction.”

Decent review and he didn't even try to make a funny on the stupid name--The Washington Post had a brief and very funny piece on the name late last week...I'll see if I can find it...

I bet you mean this piece: “With a name Like iPad can Apple’s new device possibly have wings?

And they also had an overview, something like Pogue’s: “Is it worth the wait?

All in all, the Post seems to have better coverage than the Times.

An excellent review, but as it is a UK site maybe it was censored....

Rob Pegoraro is WP's computer/tech journalist and he does a pretty good job I think...I meant to mention his review--particularly because of the Kindle comparision--and got sidetracked...

Or maybe I don't have something installed--given the dearth of captioning on 99% of internet videos, it would probably be lost on me anyway so I'll take your word for it...'-}}
