    iPad

    My wife just received an iPad 16G from her work. Any members here have one? What do you think of it? Beside using it for work, what else can be done with them?

    My brother has the iPad 2. I haven't had too much hands on experience, but he tells me he loves it.

    One thing I liked about the iPad is being able to play a huge range of games on a 10 inch tablet screen.

    Will she be able to download whatever apps, or is that monitored because it's a work related device?

    It's pretty much hers to use as she wishes and she can download just about anything she wants.

    I heard that in the upcoming iOS 5 the iPad will be able to swipe to different applications with a 4 finger swipe to the left or right. So basically like webOS and QNX except they don't turn into smaller windows.

    Well, IMO the iPad is more of a I-want-to-use-Games/the Internet-outside-of-my-house kinda device. There are some great apps that help you, like Wolfram Alpha's app, but other than that I see it as a portable time-wasting device

    With the PlayBook, just use the browser and go straight to the Wolfram site.

    I'll be sure to try it...if I ever get one. I'm not too keen on jumping on board the tablet bandwagon just yet. I'd rather get an upgrade to my PC, since when I'm outside the house, I'll be doing things I can't do inside my house, which means I won't be using a tablet in that case. The iPod Touch 5g, however; is slowly dragging me in to its trap of awesomeness...without even being released yet.
