iPad-2

I waited in line at Perth Myers store for around 2 1/2 hours to purchase an iPad-2. I have to say Myers seemed a little overwhelmed with the seemingly simple task of selling what most people already knew what they wanted! But I now have a 32Gig 3G White iPad2 !

I’ll give a more detailed review in the next week or two, but first impressions are very good. I installed iBooks and downloaded a couple of books. The speed is excellent! I installed the free TeamViewer app to try, but at this stage I’m not sure if will do the job of remotely accessing Windows machines. It’s a bit fiddly getting the mouse, keyboard and desktop all working nicely!  But I’ll persist as TeamViewer is my remote access choice for Windows.

The only thing I’m having problems with is the ‘Smart Cover’ (I purchased the Blue Polyurethane one, that is featured in the video).  It just doesn’t seem stable – particularly when the iPad is in the more vertical position.
Update:  OK, after studying the video, I worked out where I was going wrong.  I was rolling it up with the Blue side out – If you roll it up with the blue inside, it works perfectly !  Duhhh!

For travel I’m considering get the Padac’s Bluetooth Keyboard and case… It is released late next month!
Link removed – product is now obsolete!

All for now!
