Idea was to have Bb access Mail Web ...While traveling overseas and teaching!
3G is good for when a WiFi is not near. $29 a month unlimited. 3G plan does NOT work overseas Choices: a country SIM card or a special plan, which I bought VERY EXPENSIVE PLAN!
The international “Data Roaming” plan worked but very very slow Workflow was to turn on, download emails, turn off data roaming Read emails, answer, then quickly turn data roaming back on
Purchased a 60 cents a minute WiFi plan VERY SLOW Have to work quickly like experiences in Venice
Still in testing It works for asking and answering discussion posts Not for any Bb heavy lifting!
Near a wifi? GREAT! Safari, mail, all work fine and fast. 3G is slower if not near wifi but works. More and more apps for iPad are going up. EASY to carry. Light in weight. Connected to my email, contacts, and calendar through MobileMe (all of my computers sync up nicely) Easy to read books and magazines and do web research
NOT a replacement for laptop or desktop! A big harder to carry than an iPhone/iPod but text easier to see On screen keyboard not as easy as regular keyboard (but can hook a Bluetooth keyboard to it) iPad app not quite ready Can write, but not like on computer
