So, I waited in line for about 4.5 hours on Friday to get an iPad 2. By the time I got to the front of the line, the Apple Store was out of the AT&T 3G models, which was pretty disappointing since I’d had my heart set ona 32GB 3G model. I almost left the line then but decided to stick it out since I’d already been there for several hours. At about 6:00 p.m. I walked out with a 64GB Wi-Fi only version in black.
First and foremost, I love my first-generation iPad. It’s primarily my ebook reader and doubles as a very portable tool for browsing the web, checking my email, and slashing fruit with a virtual sword (not to mention killing those dastardly green pigs). This week Apple announced the second-generation iPad with a few new features and a slimmer design, though not with any particularly earth-shattering specs overall. Despite this, I’m probably going to upgrade even though I don’t *need* the iPad 2.
I (finally!) updated my site over the weekend and added my most recent iPad case review but hadn’t pointed it out here in my blog. The latest subject of my geeky scrutiny is the Quirky Cloak case for the iPad. You might recall that I did a video overview of this case when I first received it, and then I put it through its paces for the next couple of weeks to fully test it out to see how well it worked. And I’ll admit that I was completely relieved to finally be able to remove it from my iPad after that period.
Since the DODOcase, the first moleskine-style case for the iPad, was released earlier this year, a few companies have developed similar cases to bring a little competition to the table. Portenzo is one of these companies, making a case that looks almost exactly like the DODOcase along with offering other colors, options, and case styles to boot.
