I got an iPad !!

Just a quick note to let you guys know that I finally managed to get an iPad, even though it’s not released in any of “my countries” yet. As you might know, I live and work in Malta, but being Danish, I sometimes visit Denmark to catch up with friends and family. Right now I’m on vacation in Denmark and I had the opportunity to take a road trip to Hamburg and purchase some iPads. I had to show up in person, since Apple just told Germany not to ship iPads out of the country.

If you’re from Denmark and you want to do a similar roadtrip, try to call ComSpot in Hamburg, they might still have some 32GB WiFi iPads left and most likely some 64GB too, but I think they’re too expensive. 3G models are sold out everywhere I asked.

My iPad is a 16GB WiFi model, exactly what I wanted, so I was lucky to get one of the last available ones. I bet all Mac stores in Germany will get a new shipments of iPad next week, since I just purchased one, but that’s typical my luck πŸ™‚

So far I must say that it’s pretty cool, considering it’s just a big iPod Touch – but the huge screen makes a big difference!! I’ll be posting more thoughts on it soon when I’ve had time to play around with it some more.

Stay tuned!

  3. Amazing indeed!
    I think you can gain a whole new experience with iPad, which is really attractive for all Apple fans.

    • Yes, definitely. I’m also looking very much forward to testing it out in as many things as possible.

      But you don’t really have to be an Apple *fan* to enjoy or purchase an iPad πŸ™‚

  4. I’m so envious! πŸ™‚ I love looking at iPads on commercials, but haven’t tried one myself yet. Please keep us posted about how useful you find it.

    • I will be sure to post a review (long or short, we’ll see) when I have had a chance to test it out some more πŸ™‚

    • Count me among those who are going green with envy. πŸ™‚ All I can do for now is watch the commercials and pray it becomes available in my country soon. I just heard about the iPed, it’s chinese cheaper counterpart, but that just won’t do. I want the real thing.

  5. I finally got to see an iPad in person, and it’s kind of cool I must admit. I don’t see myself running out to get one, but it wouldn’t be the worse thing in the world to have.

    • I initially didn’t want one either, but all the hype got to me plus I was curious to try it out (being the gadget freak I am) and for a review on TechPatio as well πŸ™‚

    • Yes, iPad FTW πŸ™‚

      Let me know if you have any great iPad apps/games worth trying. I like to try out apps/games that really take advantage of the big screen, compared to iPhone.

  7. I wouldn’t mind getting one but I reckon it would have to wait until my iPad touch dies because until that happens I can’t see myself spending that sort of money.

  9. I can’t wait to get my iPad. I want to wait to the second gen comes out. Is there any reason why I shouldn’t wait?
