Let’s see…it’s like a iPhone, but it doesn’t have a phone…or a camera…or GPS…and some sites won’t render (Flash), but it costs 2.5 – 4 times as much as a iPhone. And Apple still hasn’t put multitasking into its devices.Â I know…right?Â Still no multitasking.
If you’re on the market for an ebook reader then the iPad is a strong candidate.Â I guess having an ebook would be cool, but I’d end up breaking that beautiful screen 5 minutes after getting it out of the box.Â (It looks super-fragile.)Â If I didn’t break it, I’d leave it behind on a train or plane.Â You do that with a book and you’re out $15.Â Do it with an iPad and your out $500-$800.
Nonetheless, I will admit to a slight bit of screen envy.Â But iWon’t.Â Will you?
