Apple So, yeah, uhm, I bought an iPad 2 today. I still don't think anyone really needs a tablet, but that doesn't mean I didn't want one. I wanted to wait until the HP TouchPad was announced, but now that it has, it seems it won't be coming to The Netherlands any time soon. As such, the iPad 2 it was. A few quick fist impressions.

even the ipad 1 is snappier than most

A friend and i saw the Motorola Xoom featuring android 3, packing a good tegra2 with a fresh os release .. it was so far beyond the ipad 1 it wasn't even funny. My friend, a fairly big Apple opponent was all sigh since there was no comparison possible at all. The bestest android was still laggy around the edges, felt like a geeky tech demo with no soul or system wide vision. While the ipad released endorphin through your brain with the right amount of excellency in graphic stack / framework combination, aiming the nicest touch/visual response I've seen. Browsing between documents, rotation of the layout .. everything felt in place. Thinking of the other lower quality tablets and the not available dual core ipad 2 left a weird smile on my face.

p.s : Even thought it's still a large amount of money, I can't stop thinking about replacing the acer netbook I got my mother with an iPad, I'd bet 100$ she'd be happier, less anxious, more productive 'computing' user than ever
