My iPad 2 Experience

I have had my own iPad 2 for a week and needless to say I am impressed.

Impressed with the look ( we ordered white ones ).

Impressed with the speed ( this thing is fast - really no start up time ).

Impressed with the options of use for the camera ( already Facetimed a doctor across the state - the opening of the classroom has started ).

Impressed with battery life ( can't wait to see how long we can push the use without recharging ).

Impressed with so many free apps that can be used in the classroom ( looking forward to creating pages on the iPad2 of similar apps ).

Two months and the students are going to be impressed with the iPad 2.
