Apple's iPad is truly a magical device. Since this community is focused on reading and books this review will focus mostly on that use of the iPad but the device is great for a number of things, reading just being one use.
Apple, Amazon, and Barnes and Noble all have eReaders designed for the iPad, each with its respective store. Each of the three software pieces has its own strong points but all are great for reading. Browsing for a new book is especially fun in iBooks as a store is built right into the application. Apple uses many animAtions and color images to make the experience as good as possible.
Reading is great on the device. The backlight allows you to read in the dark, not disturbing anyone else. The color display also allows you to look at color images embedded in your literature, a weak point of the other ereaders on the market. Battery life is great- not as great as the kindle, but amazing for a backlit LCD.
If you have the extra money I definitely suggest buying this device over anoer ereaders as you are getting a lot for your money. You can read websites, check your email, itch movies and run applications. I am loving mine!
