    I use a projector all the time in my classroom. Another thing that drove me from the Xoom is the total lack of support for real world functioning for me. I need my device to be able to connect to my wireless projector. I found this article How to Use a Wireless Projector With an iPad | eHow.com and I'm wondering if anyone here has attempted to do this and how smoothly it went for them? Is there another/better way to connect wirelessly to a projector?

    Edit:
    NVM, I found this thread http://www.ipadforums.net/ipad-2-forum/24164-can-ipad-2-connect-projector-wirelessly.html once I did a search and found the answer.

    Cincy,

    Glad to see you over here (I posted some on Xoomforums.) I, too, am getting rid of the Xoom and I already bought an IP2. I'm interested in this thread as well, as it's been a long time since I had my original Ipod Touch.

    I think at some point the Xoom/Honeycomb will be competitive with Ipads, but I don't think (at least for me), it is there yet. Great hardware, designs, just not mature enough yet. :)

    You asked about apps, etc. One thing, if you don't have it yet, the developer YouVersion has an excellent Bible app, with numerous translations, reading guides, etc. It's called "Holy Bible". You can now download for offline use as well, even participate live with other users during services, etc. Pretty slick!

    Hey NCTurner, I sold my Xoom on Ebay with BT Keyboard and the case for $700. The way I saw it is if the Xoom was the "Flagship" device for Honeycomb, I wasn't going down with the ship. Plenty of good ideas in the Xoom, not many of them actually work they way they were advertised.

    Thanks for the heads up on the YouVersion Bible app, I'm sure it will be one the first that I put on my iPad 2 when it comes in (May 4th is a long wait btw).

    Hmmm, interesting. I like the idea, but they don't say what the resolution is. I am guessing it's composite, as I see the normal red/white/yellow connection. That would be REALLY nice if it would stream HD! Thanks for the link though.

    Cincybearcatfan, I have a Droid 2 and i love it. Anyone want to make something about it? Good, I'm glad we got that out of the way.:D

    But the iPad to me is amazing, I wouldn't even think of going to an Android tablet. I can't offer you any help on the projector you're talking about but I wanted to let you know you're not alone over here. What's amazing is how well you can really get both of them working together. Last night I was texting my brother while we were watching a baseball game with my D2 and talking to people on Gtalk with my iPad.

    Sorry if I drug you a bit off topic, I hoe Sweet Poison doesn't smack me with her stick. Enjoy the forum.:)

    I have not tried skyfire because I've read it really doesn't work well for Flash.
    IPhone apps will often show up about half screen but in the lower right is a 2x button that makes it full screen. YouVersion is an example of one I find runs smoother in my Ipad than my Inc, triple sized screen alone is a big help.
    You can authorize up to 5 computers on 1 iTunes account.
    Yes you can use an app on more than 1 Ipad.
    What I did was set up another windows user on my desktop since my wife and kids have TOTALLY different sync desires than I do. I'm about apps and photos, don't have but 3 songs on my Ipad,they could care less about photos but sync lots of music. Drop box might be what you want for cloud documents. It's compatible with Ipad, Android and Windows

    I have an EVO, iPad2, and Zune too! I love them all for different reasons!


    Cincybearcatfan, I have got a iPad 2 for similar reasons. I want to be able to watch videos and do things more easily on my iPad that I don't want to do on my Android phone because of the size. Plus, I wanted to try something different and the iPad has had rave reviews. Here's what I've found:

    • I can say that I have Skyfire on both my EVO and iPad for Flash viewing. I haven't come across too many problems viewing flash or videos in general.
    • I've found I'm definitely spending more money on apps on my iPad vs my EVO. Sometimes there are no free or even cheap apps available. The Amazon Android App Store on Android hasn't helped either...making the gap bigger. :D
    • I've also found that doing some simple things on Android aren't so easy on iOS. They're may be solutions out there, but I can do lots on my EVO that sometimes I struggle to do on my iPad. For instance, file editing and moving through a File Browser seems to be much easier on my EVO.
    • I find that there are a lot more quality games on iOS compared to Android too.
    • Android has more customization options and I find my self missing the ability to add some simple widgets on homescreens. I don't go crazy with widgets. However, being able to see the weather, time(bigger), and date are some things easily added on Android but not iOS.

    I've come to realization that there are certain things that the iPad does well and my EVO does well. Now if I could just get the two to create my perfect "baby"! :D

    Add another Inc lover, new ipad2 owner and fan (for all the reasons previously mentioned plus the glaring absence of a Cisco VPN client on Android), and a PC user to boot. I'd also add I'm from Cincy originally... for what it's worth. Right now I've loaded the pad with so many ways to access my files on the exchange server, I'm still trying to figure out what's best. I have Remote Desktop, Dropbox, Docs2Go, FileBrowser, and AutoCAD WS. Love Dropbox. RDP is a bit clumsy. Docs2Go would be the answer if it synced with my exchange server, I suspect. BTW... Pocket Informant for a calendaring for me. And imalts to track my Single Malts. Finally... I found that I uninstalled a handful of apps from my Inc once I had the pad as they are better on the pad and I just didn't need them to be that mobile. Thanks for this thread by the way.
