I woke up this day n did my routine morning stuff… err.. pray and get on my laptop hoping I saved last night’s work. I didn’t! Thankfully the PC decided to give itself a brain and sleep… anyways that’s not why we are here!
Figured I’d get my hands on the much talked about iPad and get 1st hand impressions …/ah… d battery just dropped to 99%/… yea as I was saying … there’s been so much noise made bout the iPad I just had to check it out myself! The closest I could get my hands on belongs to my lovely neighbor “Kemi Adetiba” … The BBM toasting begins! … she has a real personal connection to her ipad… in her words it’s her “bigger blackberry” so it really meant a lot when she said I could have it for 30 mins.
Ewo!… This thing is big o… well at least I’d enjoy watching movies on it… the ipad greets me with a password lock… reassuring me that personal media items are well protected [somebody sell Paris Hilton an Ipad… and show her how to lock it!] …/battery nw at 98%… and wow… twitter notifications pop up once you’re mentioned! Cool.
Getting past the password lock, there’s the desktop that iPhone/iTouch users will be familiar with. It comes loaded with apps like Calendar, Contacts, Notes, Maps, Youtube, iPod and yaay – a game center… I hurriedly clicked that… disappointed to see that there’s no Street Fighter, Pro Evo Soccer or a mini God of War…
Hit up iPod and was quite pleased with the sound quality… ah! Time is going o… Just burnt 3 mins jamming sum Banky W!
Now checking out videos … I can officially say this is the strongest reason for me to get an ipad… the quality is badt! Watching Wiz Kid – Tease me… mad video! Big ups super director Kemi! Hope someday i’d be able to toast her to do a Funbi video.
Yepa! 30mins up… ah! *nw rushing to check out the other features*… Mail seems nice n organized… hooked up with my WiFi network easy.. thers also the option for a 3G sim…. Safari browser… nice… OMG! It can’t open flash based sites 🙁 … Tried opening peak talent show but the flash banner didn’t show … smh Stevie… goat u no chop, kpomo u no chop, fish u no chop, u say u want beef with ADOBE.
Oh well… gotta go! Would do a detailed review when I buy my own *sigh*
Shows over! … you can go now… no leaking of personal pics or videos… Aunty Kemi is HOT o *runnin to hide* 😉
CONCLUSION: the iPad na jst over sized iPod touch jare!… great video/music experience, decent battery life. They should sha bring down the price or get swept away by the coming Blackberry Playbook.
