iPad Questions






A question about iPads. I am thinking about buying one. Having researched as much as I can, have I got this right.


iPad 2 with just Wi-Fi… not the 3 G…does not have the ability of using a mobile broadband. If I were in the UK, I would be dependent on others Wi-Fi connection? At present if I take my laptop anywhere I can buy a mobile broadband connection to use through a USB port, but not with the iPad 2 Wi-Fi…correct?


If I buy the iPad2 Wi-Fi with 3G, I should buy it set for AT&T, which gives me a greater choice of servers abroad, who use the GSM chipset, correct? Given that I may have managed to get all of this right!!! Does it all still apply, as I am buying it in Canada, but still want the capability of using it in other countries?


Last question! I have read bits and pieces that Apple may come out with the iPad 3 in the next few months! Anyone heard more definitive rumours? If there is such a thing!.

I wish that I could help you...I'd like an ipad too:/
I think that you should ring up your local Apple people and talk to them or contact them through the Internet. There is nothing like getting information from the horse's mouth.

What turns me off a little is that I haven't got an apple computer so I'm waiting...waiting...for microsoft to bring out a good version of it's own. I think that it would be better if my computer and pad were fully compatable.

The Apple store is always so busy, I can barely hear myself asking the questions, but the idea of phoning them is a good one! Thank you.

I was thinking an iPad was a good way to see if I liked the idea of a Mac. My daughter's laptop is a Mac, and she loves it. I also thought it would be easier and lighter to take, if we ever get back to doing some travelling! Sony just released a tablet, but from what I see, it isn't as good as the iPad.

I wish I had one so I could offer advice. I'd love one.

I do have someone who is on my flist that I know has one, I could ask her if I can email her your questions if you like and see if she knows the answers.

Thank you!

I am going to try phoning the Apple store at the beginning of next week, it will be a mad house over the week-end. I don't always find going into the store helpful, too much noise! If I am still unsure after that I may take you up on your offer.

Have a good week-end.:))
