Default Re: iPad (iSpaz)

Battery life is exactly the same as a standard Eee 900a, but I only have the crappy 4-cell battery, so about 2 hours of browsing, prolly 3-4 idle.

It performs well, it has tandard netbook specs, 1600MHz atom, 1GB RAM, pos ssd, etc. I can play some basic games on it, but I currently need a keyboard to control them. Hopefully I will be able to figure out the accelerometer, so that will not be problem so much anymore. It will also have a few integrated keys later on, so I can use it as a gaming device. My goal is to be able to play RTCW on it lol.

Oh, and it was just a couple hours of work to build. Most of the time was spent waiting for the touch panel to come from china.

Try it for yourself. iPad is much more than an oversized iPod touch/iPhone.

I thought an iPhone was great after 15 minutes of use also. You never really know how you will like a product until you have had it for a while.

If it is as stable as the iphone, it is best to avoid. Hopefully that will be fixed tho.

I you just use it as a phone, it is. Mine gets constant freezes/crashes if I use the browser for more than about 30 minutes, and it often will lock up for quite a while when I watch videos. Not to mention the issues with its ability to play youtube videos. Yesterday I had to go through it attempting to load a video, then sayin unsupported format at least 10 times before it would play.

And yes I am on the newest OS, no it is not jailbroken/unlocked.
