Several people have been asking me what I think of the iPad, and I’ve been meaning to write something long-form – a quasi-review, if you will – up here. Long story short, that still hasn’t happened.
What’s the short-form review? It hit me this morning, when I plugged in my MacBook at the office and unlocked the screen.
Staring at me were my Chrome windows from the last time I was using my MacBook: Friday afternoon, when I was troubleshooting the DSL, and a window from Saturday when I was working on setting up a third 802.11 base station with WDS at home.
Other than that, I’ve been using the iPad all weekend.
Work? Long writing spells, like Strategic Plans and the like? Totally MacBook.
Everything else? It’s either the iPad, or when it’s being used or just “too big”, my Nexus.
We’ll see what Ice Cream Sandwich has in store tomorrow, but this past weekend with iOS 5 is the first time I’ve seriously considered looking at the iPhone for my next upgrade.
