"Fun, flexible device"5.0 starson by sanguinjay
Great battery life
Growing App market
Cons: Too big for a pocket
App market still a little small
Summary: I picked mine up shortly after the iOS 4.2.1 release. I have used it mainly as a second computer at home, but it has come in handy as a lighter alternative to taking my 15 inch laptop on the go. The battery has been more then impressive. At home the brightness is set to the lowest setting ,otherwise it seems a bit like a torch, and it can go a day or more without needing a charge. I pick it up to play a few games, check my email, log on to facebook, watch movies and videos, and sketch a bit, with long periods of standby. I will fall asleep with it next to me in bed. I pick it up and check facebook and the battery is still strong. The GPS is good more accurate then it will ever admit itself to being, it can pin point my location to less then 20 feet while inside my home. AT&T coverage is pretty lousy in my area, but they are expecting to improve that here soon, but when I am covered it is more then fast enough to check my email, Facebook, and instant messages to friends.
The downside of the device has to be the apps you can get for it. As of this review many of my most needed apps such as yahoo messenger, Facebook, and Skype have yet to release iPad optimized versions. They look perfect on the small screen of my iPod touch 4g but look atrocious blown up to fit my iPad, though that is of no fault of Apple, developers need more time and incentive to focus on the new device.
