As a mummy blogger I feel I should know all about iPads. I’ve seen them on the telly looking very cool and a bit magical with all the slick hand movements but thats about as close as I have ever got to an iPad, When those lovely people at three mobile asked if I would like to borrow one to review, I was delighted to.
Technology isn’t really my thing. I have a little netbook and a pc but my mobile doesn’t even go online and my hubby is a tech expert and sorts out almost everything for me.
The iPad is pretty straightforward though. Immdiatley online due to the nifty little three mobile sim card included and access to all you could want. Oh it feels so lovely. It is light, flexible and intuitive really. I found it an absolute delight to use.I loved the way I could be online anywhere, that a big keyboard sprang up on screen when I needed it. I loved that I could flick my fingers and make the page bigger or smaller, focus in or out, shift it to the left or right! Great stuff.
I downloaded twitter, checked my mail, looked at my blog (the whole page for once!) easily I checked out the bookstore and browsed the films.. I have to say if I could afford it I would definately purchase one. How great to just slip in your bag and when you have a spare few minutes be able to access so much.
