Apple iPad, we finally got it! What do you want to know?

by 69 comments

The iPad is definitely not as hot as it used to be in the beginning of the month, but hey, getting one in good ol’ Europe was a hard enough task let alone sneaking it under the siege of an erupting volcano with a name only a mother could say right.

Anyway, now that we have it, you can bet we’ll be reviewing the iPhone’s big brother here in our blog. But only after we’re done playing with this new toy.

So far one thing’s for sure – it’s fast. The Apple’s iPad is Read more »

The international Apple iPad premiere delayed for the end of May, sigh

by 435 comments

It seems the USA fellas grabbed all the manufactured iPads and the rest of the world must wait until the end of May to get their hands on some officially imported units.

I don’t know if Apple didn’t really hope for such hype or just did their calculations wrong. Either reasons, the iPad is out of stock almost everywhere in the USA and willing customers are eagerly waiting for the next shipment.

Unfortunately, the previously promised international iPad launch that was scheduled for late April is now delayed until the end of May. The new launch date and pricing will be unveiled on 10 May.

by 184 comments

by 1,021 comments

You might have noticed earlier today that the Apple Store website was down again. And as it usually happens after it went back up again a new product was available for order.

Now my editor doesn’t allow me to open the discussion of why Apple alone in the world needs to take down their whole company website to announce the availability of a new product so I’ll just give you the good news.

The Apple iPad is now available on pre-order and if you really, really want to be among the first ones to have it, you might wanna order it right now. Read more »

Hott MD500 4.8″ Android Tablet aims for the “iPad-killer” thing

by 14 comments

So the Apple iPad isn’t even out yet and here goes the first device trying to kill it. Or at least that’s what the guys from Hott have said about their 4.8″ tablet dubbed MD500. Running Android (with a few home-brewed customizations) it packs an ARM9 CPU. Check it out in action in the video after the break.

Hott MD500Hott MD500Hott MD500Hott MD500

Coming with a much thinner bezel and at the incredibly sweet price of 92 US dollars (to distributors anyway) it does seem worthy of some attention but I doubt things will be as sweet in the end as they sound now.

Anyway with the lukewarm reception the iPad is getting so far it’s even unclear yet if it will be the device to beat, so we will have to wait and see how this battle develops.
