Apple iPad WiFi + 3G review

 

Portable browsing and downloads reaches the iPad

Expert review by:

Apple iPad 3G review

 

Now out in the UK, we look at the iPad Wi-Fi + 3G - is it worth the extra cash?

Great user interface ; Fantastic app experience ; Great screen ; HD video looks brilliant

Not convinced about the keyboard ; It's pricey ; Tariffs not cheap either

Chances are you've already made up your mind whether or not to get one, so if you have your choice is just whether to get an iPad 3G or just the iPad Wi-Fi. Whichever iPad you choose, it does many things very well.

There are two ways I could write this Apple iPad review: the pessimistic way or the optimistic way. For a device that has polarised the gadget community as to whether it is the "second coming" or merely "sucks", the thing that both approaches have in...

Watch movies, play games, read books, great screen

Will cost you to fill it with useful stuff, can't multitask yet, limited to what Apple offers you

A fantastic device that is an emotional luxury. But be warned it will need feeding with content to keep you entertained and justify its existence

We get hands on with the new giant iPod touch

light, looks beautiful, zippy to use

Expert review by:

Apple iPad

 

Bigger than Jesus, or just a big iPod touch? We find out.

What it does do is demonstrate the potential of the tablet as a segment. In time, with a few software updates, tweaks to the hardware and a more compelling library of content to draw on, it could well deliver on the hype it currently receives. It'll...

Apple iPad review

 

Apple all but created the tablet market with the original iPad and, two years and 55 million sales later, other manufacturers are still struggling to compete. The latest iPad raises the stakes still higher, thanks to a huge 1,536 x 2,048 screen...

LTE is unlikely to take off soon, but the retina display alone makes this new model worth having and the fact that neither battery life or price has changed makes it all the more impressive

Expert review by:

Apple iPad hands-on

 

Apple's third iPad brings a higher resolution display, as well as a souped-up processor and 5-megapixel camera. It's looking very promising, though it's slightly thicker, and feels noticeably heavier to hold.

Retina display ; Improved 5-megapixel camera ; A5X processor ; Voice dictation

Slightly thicker and heavier than the iPad 2 ; 4G tech won't work in the UK

Expert review by:

Apple iPad 3G 64GB review

 

The iPad is probably the most overhyped portable computing device since the iPhone. Although it's tempting to dismiss Apple's 9.7in touchscreen tablet computer as nothing more than a large iPod Touch, it's much more than that thanks to its larger,...

The iPad can be both delightful and frustrating to use at the same time. Think carefully before buying, especially if you already own other portable computing devices.

Always read Comments about Tablet Computers

 

In recent years, a growing number of consumers have discovered the many benefits of reading up on reviews of products before buying. For the more expensive items such as camcorders, televisions and digital cameras, making the wrong choice can prove to be a costly mistake. If you buy a TV that doesn’t have the features you need, for example, you may end up having to buy another one soon after.

Independent advice from previous purchasers is available from alaTest at the click of a mouse, and can make the difference between finding a perfect tablet computer and one that doesn’t match your needs. With the convenience and portability of the incredible iPad, it pays to do a little research into its many applications.
