Apple iPad on its way!

ipads I’m sure that you are only too aware that as of this morning, 3rd April, the Apple iPad went on sale in the US. Still no word on the actual launch date here in the UK or when we’ll even be able to pre-order.

We were keen to review the iPad as soon as possible so appealed to our US followers on Twitter to see if anyone could help us out and get one for us. I’m really pleased to say that we had a few offers of assistance and thanks to Ching-Yao Yu we’ll have an iPad to review within just a few days, as soon as it gets here from Maryland via FedEx!

Massive thanks to Ching-Yao Yu for helping us out.

Please head over to the forums to start submitting your comments and questions and we’ll do our best to answer your questions and it’ll give me some ideas as to what to cover in the videos that I shall undoubtedly be recording!

Here’s a heads up from WMpoweruser. Microsoft will not be controlling the the hardware specs of Windows Phone 7 devices. As they point out this is a good thing for one reason, no huge Zune style connectors. However, it does mean will will still have to endure what is a pet hate of mine, incompatibility between plugs and cables provided with various devices. At least we won’t have to suffer the annoyance of the iPhone with all cables looking the same but only working on one particular generation.
