For less than $500 it is a great device. Wonderful to read from. "Great for news, email, finances, calendar and Facebook. He adds: for most of the things I check regularly it is great. Most things I do on line I do through a browser so this is perfect."
He loves the speed of the iPad and the ease of using it. "Google apps really fly. Can't think of many reasons not to use them all the time".
So he must have some reservations: "haven't quite calibrated my finger yet!"
And as a learning device: "perfect! Comfortable and easy to access multilayer resources. It is new, not a phone, not a lap top or a tablet PC. And it has slipped right into my life in less than an hour."
