The iPad went on sale for the first time one year ago today, on April 3rd of 2010.
Wow. I guess magical tablets grow up almost as fast as children. And time definitely flies when you’re having fun writing about a great device.
This time last year I was already at home with my shiny new iPad. I was Number 7 in the reserved line at my local Apple store on iPad Release Day, having arrived at around 6:30AM, I was out of the store and on my way home by 9:40. A much smoother and shorter experience than on iPad 2 launch day.
When I first laid hands on the iPad I thought it was an amazing device. My appreciation of it has grown throughout this year and grew again when I got my new iPad 2 a few weeks ago. It has become by far and away my most used mobile device, and is catching up with my MacBook Pro for most used device overall.
Happy Birthday iPad – and many happy returns.
