Apple iPad: How do the apps shape up?

We take a look through a range of iPad specific apps, including the basic mail, safari and iPod applications.

We've been lucky enough to get our hands on the Apple iPad well before its Australian launch in "late April." We've had a brief but exciting play with the iPad and we're ready to give you the low down on what to expect! Let's take a run through some of the specific iPad apps, from the basics to some cool and free iPad apps in the App Store!

iPad home screen


The iPad's home screen. As you can see, its very similar to the iPhone, except on a much larger scale. The dock takes a leaf out of Mac OS X with a 3D background, while the larger screen means there is more space for app icons. The small icon you can see next to the battery percentage indicator is the screen rotation lock.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
