    Hi all! First things first, a little bit about me. My name is Tracey and I'm a misplaced New Zealander living in Las Vegas with my hubby, 2 grown sons and more pets than you could shake a stick at.

    I'm a new convert to the iPad, having fallen into ownership by accident. A customer sold me an android tablet, which I fell in love with ... mostly. A few days later she came back and told me her husband was very upset because she'd sold the wrong thing. Being the doll I am, I traded for their unopened iPad 2.

    I have things I prefer about both devices, but for the most part, the iPad wins. It's lighter, easy to use and more responsive than the Iconia was. It was a bonus that stuff just worked, such as streaming media services, whereas Netflix, Hulu etc wouldn't on the Iconia. The only two things I preferred on the latter were the camera and the customization. I very much miss my thumb keyboard and the fact I could see commonly used things right there on the screen.

    Anyway,that's probably more than you needed to know. I look forward to getting to know everybody!

    Good to hear from you. You’ll find a whole bunch of iPad enthusiasts in this Forum who are only too willing to help other iPad owners and to hear of their experiences. Don’t be afraid to post any questions you may have or use the ‘Search’ button near the top of the Forum web page. I usually find I discover one new interesting and useful piece of information about my iPad every day - and often not even what I was looking for!!

    Hope to hear from you soon with your thoughts about the iPad.

    Have fun and enjoy your iPad

    If you don’t already have it you can download a copy of the iPad manual for free.

    Please read the rules too!!
