The iPad Is Here
Personally, I think the iPad is "meh" at best and if I was going to get a tablet, I'd get something else. That being said, there were folks lined up at Best Buy this weekend to get one (thanks Michael at StandAloneCode for the vid):
Best Buy apparently started with 10 units of each of the models: 16, 32, and 64 GB. Then UPS dropped off another 20 of each. So by the time they opened, they had 90 to work worth. Any idea if they sold out?
They still don't support multi-tasking, but there's a reason for it.
Robert played with the iPad for a bit and posted a quick review on it, based on one he saw over at Connecting Point.
And 24 hours after it was released, the iPad has already been Jailbroken.
In other local Apple news, this was also the same weekend that the iPhone was officially available. I was over at the
Mountain View Mall Cascade Village Shopping Center the day it opened on a completely unrelated matter, and the new AT&T store was absolutely packed. Did anybody here pick up one? Personally I'm waiting for my contract with my phone to run out before I decide what I'm doing, but it probably won't be an iPhone, because AT&T's plans are ludicrously expensive compared to Sprint's.
