iPad and I are BFFs! yay!

Ok, so four of us went to lunch today.The three of us were tagging along to play at the apple store while the fourth was getting an iPad case. Well the first to fall was Mike, his birthday is next month and he is already a Mac guy so it was really not too big a surprise. My birthday is in 13 days and as Mike was finishing up his purchase the lady asked me if I had any questions. I looked at her and said “umm… Ok set me up like Mike”
And the rest is history.
So my take of the iPad in the last 3 hours? Here it goes:
Its actually pretty cool. It definitely is a niche machine. I have tried out plants vs zombies HD which is formatted to the iPad as well as marvel comics. Both are amazing. The non iPad formatted apps are definitely lacking in resolution if you ask me. My Twitter app twitterlator pro has not been formatted for iPad and so definitely looks either small or grainy if I press the 2x button.

Setup was easy. I plugged in my iPhone and made a backup and then turned on and plugged in the iPad. After choosing to register the iPad I was asked if I wanted to restore my apps from my last iPhone backup. I did that to see what my iPhone apps would look like. Frankly, most iPhone apps just don’t have the resolution to pull off the 2x button if you ask me and look like crap. Let’s hope that apps like Facebook, mashable and Twitter apps like twitterlator pro get updates soon.
The iBook reader is very easy to use and prices seem ok for digital book content. The “hitchhikers guide to the galaxy” isn’t available yet but I won’t hold it against them.
After messing around with netflix (which by the way rocks!) and all the other apps I mentioned I a, still at 83% battery. I am even typing this using the wordpress app that HAS been updated for the iPad.

So, my take so far… Fun, useful for what I want to do and very speedy. 4 out of 5 for me right now. I will blog more about this after i get more air time in on the device and i will let you know.

See you all soon!

HP Slate takes swing at Ipad

HP Slate tablet IPad Killer?

Today the HP Slate Demo Video ended up at Engadget as well as Mashable.com. So, my take on this is that HP is now trying to take some of the wind out of the sails of the IPad. It obviously is trying to use the Fervor over the IPad as well as some peoples dislike over Apple’s latest tech offering to shed some interest their way.

The HP Slate is bringing its A game to the show with its fully decked out specs:

The Base Spec HP Slate will have 32GB of Storage and sell for $549.00 . Other notable stats are 1 GB of RAM, a  1.6Ghz Processor using Atom and the screen comes in at 8.9 Inches with Multitouch ability. The Screen resolution will be 1024 x 600. There will also be a 64GB version as well.

So all in all not a bad little device. price point is still in the ballpark to compete with the IPad as well as all the other Slates, or tablets yet to be announced. ( you heard me MS! ). I would welcome any HP rep that would give me the opportunity to review the Slate and let me write a post about it.

On the Same track as the Tablet PC market:

I had the opportunity to ask Microsoft for any news concerning the Upcoming Courier. and I got the following boilerplate response:

In regards to your Courier request, please refer to the following statement, attributable to a Microsoft spokesperson:

While it is in Microsoft’s DNA to continually develop and incubate new technologies to foster productivity and creativity, we have no product announcements around this topic today.

–          Microsoft spokesperson

wonderful.. thanks I think?

So,  What do you think of the HP Slate? Ipad Killer?
