Will he or won’t he (buy an iPad)?
On the Mannerisms blog, he was against it, and then for it, and now he is agin it, again…
* Portable But Not Pocketable: Why iPad? (January – against)
“Do I want to pay another £30 a month to a network operator? Do I want to carry around a ten inch screen? Do I want to read books on a bright screen?”
“The Wifi-only version is the one for me. I can put it on my bedside table – where my iPhone used to be – and read news and mail in the morning; in the daytime, I will put it on the table by the sofa to pick up and read as needs be.”
* iPhone Much Better Than iPad (May – against)
“You really wouldn’t want to carry an iPad around. It’s slippery. Those smooth surfaces and rounded edges make you think you’d drop it. That’s $500 down the drain. Nor would you really want to carry it around in a briefcase when it adds 1.5lb to the weight of your bag.”
