Well - this forum is fantastic - eyes are sore from staying up late and reading through lots of things
I'm an Android phone user and am getting a tablet. My mum and dad both have android tablets....mum loves playing her flash games etc...and browsing the net - basically thats it. Dad likes developing and customisation so his android tablet suits him just fine.
Me on the other hand - well always been a bit of a basher of apple - did have an ipod when they first came out - really old looking now lol... but never got the ipod (came close to it), nor iphone. Instead I got HTC Desire on 2 year contract last july so still a year to go. I've been meaning to get a tablet for ages but have been unbelivably busy at work so haven't had the time to research etc. The last week or so I've been researching and although I do like my android phone...I would much prefer to get an apple ipad rather than honeycomb android as I'm a big app user and don't believe apps for android tablets are as advanced as I'd like. I may even decide to get the new iphone next year when my contracts up if I like my ipad2 (which I'm sure I will)..
Anyway - I do have a few questions and thought this is definitely the best place to ask - especially as I'll be using this forum a lot when I get my new ipad2 (I use the android forums alot too for my phone).... I can't remember all my questions but here goes...
1. I'm going to buy my ipad2 in the U.S in 10 days (going off on hols)....I'm a bit confused about activation etc... I'm buying the 32gb 3g AT&T version - now I know that local sims are compatible so I'm ok with that - but I'm confused about activation. I've read I need to get it activated in the states in order for the 3g to work in the U.K (have heard mixed comments about this but I want to use it in the states anyway) .... If I get it activated in the states while I'm there (apple guys doing it) will I have problems with using a UK itunes account - is it best to get my itunes accountt in UK before I go?? (I actually think I have one - needa check)... Will I also be able to use it in the states on wifi before I go home? If someone could clear that up for me or give me some simple, easy steps??
Ok that was my main question...I did have others but they have went from my head...but I know I can come back and ask you fine people
