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.

Agreed, iOS 5 is a good step forward for Apple. I still wouldn't buy anything running it due to the low choice of hardware (too expensive and too little hardware shortcuts to lengthy touchscreen actions), the locked-down software (in tons of way. I know you can bypass nearly everything but that's like modding a frying pan to turn it into a wind power generator) and the desperately crippled "application grid only" home screen, but I have to admit that for people who don't care about all of that, it's pretty good.
