Well, the “big” decision was made. I would get a WiFi+3G iPad with 32Gb of storage space. Sort of the deluxe “mamma bear” iPad.
Since my last blog a couple of days ago Apple has announced that the 3G version would go on sale on Friday, April 30, 2010 at 5:00 PM EDT in Apple stores, first come, first served.
O.K., now that presents another dilema. The nearest Apple store is 50 miles away. No advance reservations are being taken so I’ve got to show up sometime before five that day and stand in line.
What time should I show up? At 10 AM when the store opens? Noon? 1, 2 or 3:00 PM?
I’ll keep you posted as I have a week to plan my strategy. All of your suggestions are welcome! Of couse I’ll do a live blog and include photos as I stand in line. Stay, as they say, tuned.
Quite frankly I can’t decide. Make no mistake I want one. As a Tech Geezer I’m drooling over the prospect of owning one.
But I’m like a kid in the candy store with too many choices: Wi-Fi only model, or the one with Wi-Fi and 3G? Then there’s the question of storage space: 16, 32, or 64.
Simple easy to set up and use. Lots of iPhone and iPad apps can be set up to use Flickr. Search for iTechGeezer on Flickr to see my photos. More each day.
I recently purchased a Eye-Fi 8GB Wi-Fi SD card. So small, so cool! I put it into my Nikon camera and it now stores and uploads my pictures and video to my Flickr account and also Geotags them. Full review soon on my web site: iTechGeezer
