The iPad is out and many a word will be written about it. I’m not immune to that so here’s a roundup of what I’ve said about it:
For what it’s worth, I think it’s going to be interesting. For around £750, it looks as if you could have a top of the range 64GB iPad complete with keyboard dock and case. At the cheap end it could be around £400. (the exact prince conversion comes out cheaper but when did Apple pass up a chance for a little European markup?) But £400 for a backup text input machine alone makes it interesting. I doubt it’s versatile enough for reporters out of the office, but for authors and so on? Who knows – Charlie Stross is saying some interesting things about it.
