iPad 2 is calling my name every day. So far resisted, but I played on my girlfriends dads the other day and its the perfect couch companion. Its also going to be super useful for what I do at work. I use Drop box and EverNote alot so making notes on experiments on the fly and attaching pictures, diagrams and documents would do some wonders for my organisational skills.
- GoodReader is the best app I have (together with Instapaper), but it's only useful if you have lots of pdf (or related) files.
- Flipboard is free and really excellent for keeping up with your social networks and news feeds.
- Solar/Star Walk I can both recommend if you're into astronomy even remotely, not sure how well it works without a GPS though.
For your plane ride back I can only recommend putting a shit ton of movies and/or series on it.
The iPad 2 arrived in India on Friday, and I can't believe they're sold out! I'm being asked to wait between 10 and 20 days. I've been calling multiple stores to try and get my hands on it. It'll be my first Apple device. Hope to have it by the coming weekend. I'll be watching this thread closely.
I rang the Apple store in Leicester's High Cross shopping center mid afternoon - "yes we have a few of all the iPad 2 models". Quickly finish up at work, drive to the shops, get there and guess what? All gone. All of them even the 64gb 3G models which cost a bomb.
I've ordered one off the apples store website, but even thats showing June 1st as estimated delivery so I may cancel and chance my luck with the store again. They're just selling like mad. Apparently its LG's fault for making shitty screens.
