Apple iPad: Hands-on review

The Apple iPad has finally landed, it has been a long road but we are finally here. We have been following the Apple Event from the start, well even a few weeks before and we are now ready for the first hands-on review of the device, thanks to some help from Engadget.

Looking at the device you can see that the screen is gorgeous, Engadget picks up on the fact that the response of the titling is superb and feels very thin in your hands. The iPhone and the iPad are very similar when placed side-by-side as well as the way they function.

Before you get too exited about the device there are a few things that you need to know, the first that it is not as light as you would expect. We know it only weighs one and a half pounds but it just feels heavy in your hands. Engadget does not want to put the device down too much, and notices how stunning the 1024 x 768 display is.

As for that Apple 1GHz A4 processor, it is very fast at loading WebPages. Apple gives us great things in one hand and takes it away with another; this is evident with the lack of multitasking.

We have just learned that the iPad is running iPhone OS 3.2, we have to wonder how long it will be before it makes it to the iPhone?
