  • iPad Unboxing
    Our full review should be up within 24 hours, but we didn't want to leave you guys hanging with no images from our end. We've got a few of them lying around, and a few more on the way when the 3G ones ship.

    In Apple's famous packaging style, once opened you see the iPad, and only the iPad. Underneath is simple white cardboard with a pull tab to get to the USB cable and power adapter.

    The iPad's screen is larger than I thought it would be once I'm seeing it - here's a couple photos of it next to a MacBook Air and a 15" MacBook Pro.

    And a few more for you to gain a perspective of the size and look of it.

    As a first perspective - you have to get used to it being it's own thing, not a large iPhone, in order to really get it. Again, we'll post up a full review this evening most likely, if not first thing tomorrow after using it a while, but it's most definitely more laptop than it is iPhone/iPod. There are marked differences between a laptop, a smart phone, and the iPad - it really is a new genre, closer to a netbook, but for a whole different user.

    We'll elaborate further later, just wanted to whet everyone's appetites that hadn't got an iPad yet.

    Oh - the thing DOES feel perfect though. Weight, size - it's very "holdable."

    Folks who got one - what's your thoughts?

      I agree. It starts with the nickel and diming people.. sure, it's a $5 set of headphones, but isn't that sort of part of the mobile multimedia experience? Don't make excuses for Apple NOT doing something they always do.

      Speaking of accessories.. why has noone complained of that god-awful ugly chud of an adapter? What happened to the cute little square?

      haters are just looking for reasons to complain. Apple releases a 5mp camera then it should have been an 8 mp, they offer 10 hours of battery time then it should be 14, or whatever. It's rather annoying. Life isn't perfect and neither will be a product released from any company.

      Well, I began using my iPad yesterday at 5 pm....and when I was ready to stop (mostly because of tired eyes) it was 2 am (battery life was at 55%).....the consensus is that the iPad is way different then an iPhone or iPod touch ......how? well...first off there are some apps made just for the iPad....that u can't get on the other devices....such as ABC Player, which plays all ABC show episodes....and Netflix...so, I can only imagine what apps are going to come out in the future that take advantage of the iPad and it's screen size and speed, etc.....oh yeah...I know what a jailbreak is....definitely...

      I will personaly take this off your hands. If you need my address pm me :]

      The iPad is much more kin to a laptop than an iPod Touch. Just because it has the same interface as the iPod doesn't mean anything anymore. The screen size puts this think into the computer category, not the iPod category.
