iPad Frenzy: Are you as excited as the others?

Salam to all,
The picture is taken from website.

Last night I watched this news on TVNZ about the iPad frenzy in New York and Seattle. People who were so excited in buying the latest technology device, lined up in front of Apple stores even before the stores were opened for business.

Do you know what is iPad? Frankly speaking, I was not really aware about this latest hype as I don't really follow or buy the latest devices unless I really need them. Well, of course money is the biggest issue for me. The latest gadget or device would be so costly and I would think 100x times as there are other important things that I need.

Here's a bit of information about iPad from Wikipedia:

The iPad is a tablet computer developed by Apple Inc. Announced on January 27, 2010, it is positioned in a category between a smartphone and a laptop computer.[10]

Similar in functionality to the smaller, less powerful iPhone or iPod touch, it runs a modified version of the same operating system (iPhone OS),[11][12] with a user interface redesigned to take advantage of the larger screen.[13] The iPad has a 9.7-inch (25 cm) LED backlit multi-touch display, 16 to 64 gigabytes (GB) of flash memory, Bluetooth, and a 30-pin dock connector to sync with iTunes and connect wired accessories.[5] Two models have been announced: one with 802.11n Wi-Fi and one with 802.11n Wi-Fi and 3G (which can connect to HSDPA cellular networks), and Assisted GPS

Both models may be purchased with three different storage capacities.[5]
As Apple's first device to use its iBookstore service and companion iBooks ebook reading application, the iPad has been compared with Amazon's Kindle and Barnes & Noble's Nook.[14][15][16]

So, does it sounds interesting? Will you become interested to purchase one for yourself? Or buy it as a cool birthday present for your loved one? kalau nilah hadiah harijadi, tak pasal2 ada yg kena sakit jantung sbb terkejut. maklumlah hadiah yg agak mahal. hehehe

Before you get so excited and want to join the others who had purchased it, you have the right to know about that an  iPad doesn't have a built-in camera, USB drive and CD slot. Thus it makes it offer a limited software which might not be so desirable by certain people.

If you are wondering how much does this cost? Let's see what I've found from website:

For now, Apple is selling versions of the iPad that can only connect to the internet using Wi-Fi. Those models start at US$499. (NZ$706.) Versions that also have a cellular data connection will be available by the end of the month. They will cost US$130 more, with the most expensive at US$829. tengok tu mahal nok mapuh. baik aku sipe duit wat beli mugo lain hok pekdoh lg.
All right. Now what say you? Are you excited and can't wait to get this new device for yourself or you are like me who would rather wait until the device is proven useful first. But the downside of that by the time I want to buy one, there'll be another cool device which might be 100x better and hype. huhu. One thing you have to remember is, technology like this is evolving and easily become obsolete.

Salam Kak Nur.

Ini satu contoh review product yang baik dan menarik. Akak boleh check it out di eBay ada program tulis review dengan kita dibayar USD1 untuk sebuah review. Bagi saya, ok lah USD1=RM3++.

Oh, mulanya saya teruja jugak dengan iPad ni sebab dalam filem 2012 tu ada scene lelaki arab guna benda macam ni. Tapi itulah, dia tak guna Window kan? Lagi pun orang kata iPad adalah iPhone yang dibesarkan saiznya.

salam ustaz,

terima kasih. K.Nur tulis suka2 je. Tak sangka buat product review ada org bayar ye. Nanti akk tengok di e-bay. Thanks for the info.
