iPad Keyboard can be key

June 24th, 2010 No Comments

Q:teresawu asked:How do you like your iPad/keyboard combo? Have you been using that instead of your laptop?

A:

This questions actually addresses two things:

1.  I do like having the keyboard for when I sit down with the Pad.  But it’s a b!tch to travel with (although both pieces are lighter than a laptop), and I rarely bring it out otherwise.

2.  The real issue is with the Pad itself.

I’ve talked about it with some BFD’s in tech and we all agree, it’s just not everything we want it to be.

It’s great for emails on the plane, but not if you want to do any actual work.  In meetings, you can take notes quicker than you can on a PDA (or surf the web during a boring presentation), but typing at length can be irritating.

The apps fails ALL THE TIME.

Of course there are many amazing features, but as I said in an earlier post, it’s not a necessity now.  Go grab the new iPhone first!
