Apple iPad review

The Apple iPad… There it is, after some months of rumors and predicted speculations with Steve Jobs’ keynote speech, last January, as the highlight, Apple’s newest product is on our desk, to play the leading role in this Apple iPad review. With unknown strategic precision, Apple’s marketing department has managed to put a product onto the market that knows two extremes from the very start. It is seen as spectacularly successful by the Apple fan side, and as senseless, not-adding-anything-new by the other - often non-Apple-owner - side.

Apple iPad review
After having charged the Apple iPad via the USB cable, which goes quite slowly for that matter, we gave it a first run. Coincidentally, it was sunny out when we were testing it, so the iPad was also taken with us to try it out while relaxing at a café terrace. This made us realize that the iPad’s display gives a bit of trouble with reflection. It depends a bit on the way in which the sunlight falls on the display, but when it starts reflecting, the iPad must inevitably be moved to a different position. Another point is, how to handle the iPad? There does not seem to be one answer to that question. Some will use the Apple iPad on their laps, while others will benefit from the many optional accessories, such as the iPad dock, which can be used.

Review Apple iPad
The Apple iPad’s screen format is 9.7-inches and has a resolution of 1024x768 pixels. Our experience with the iPad display is positive. With the exception of the sometimes bothersome reflection, the image reproduction is of absolutely high quality. The image angle is larger than what you are used to with a standard laptop or netbook, but the display does its best indoors, without any direct light on the display. The color reproduction is excellent, with great color saturation and contrast. It is remarkable how well the display handles high contrasts. The black is a deep black, with a whiter than white experience next to it! It’s great!

iPad review
The Apple iPad is a revolutionary new tablet that changed the way we look at today’s tablets. The Apple iPad offers a high-resolution, 9.7-inch LED-backlit IPS display that is remarkably crisp and vivid. The iPad is a perfect device for web browsing, watching movies, or viewing photos. The Multi-Touch screen on the iPad is based on the same revolutionary technology on iPhone.
