    Hi everyone!

    I've just today ordered my first iPad, the Mini. I thought I would start small, with a modest spec, and see if I like it. :)

    At first, I'll mainly be using it for Twitter, email, as a personal organiser, for reading, and for making notes and doing research for my writing. But I'm I'm sure it won't be long before I'm exploring apps.

    This looks like a fantastic source of advice for the Apple/iPad beginner.

    Thanks ever so much for the welcome, everyone. My Mini doesn't actually arrive until the 19th, although I'm fantasising that it might actually come sooner. At the moment, I'm trying to learn as much as I can about iPads and the operating system, so I'll be able to put the Mini to good use as soon as I get my paws on it. Many thanks for those helpful links, Gabriel. I'm new to all things Apple, really [apart from one geriatric iPod] so they'll be invaluable.
