Re: The Apple iPad

Can you get spotify on it? I've stopped using MP3s since I got spotify pro, so all an iPad would have to have is that..

I pay 10 quid a month for unlimited high quality, legal music with no adverts and so yes it does (although you need to be in the UK to sign up the first time). The non-pro version doesn't.

so basically it doesn't work for most users :-/ I'm subscribing to Last.fm, which is ok but not great. Interestingly, they allow international users to subscribe (to the paid version) but they don't offer the client in the Swiss Android Market or the App Store.

Well, it does. Just get someone in the UK to sign up on your behalf or use a free VPN or something.

Ok, the VPN method could work for me - does it work using a Swiss CC?

As you need to register when you get a new prepaid SIM, Orange will know your number. Just call them up - they can look up your address.
No I bought it online from Apple.

I'll just buy another, no probs

Apple is legally required to submit your address data to the service provider if you buy a pre-paid card, so Orange will still be able to give you the number.

Anybody got any recommendations to make for a case for the iPad?
If anyone is interested, I got this one from this website.

http://www.podware.de/iPad-Zubehoer/...ec774e760b0bb9

Delivery was quick, more expensive than most cases but worth it I feel. Feels better quality than the apple case.

The closing tab isn't a button or velcro which is the only downside.

Re: The Apple iPad

Just bought this:

http://www.griffintechnology.com/pro...jolt-plus-ipad

Very useful, will allow me to charge my iphone while I have my GPS or the children's DVD player connected. Looks well connected. And when I get my iPad will allow me to charge it quickly as well.

If only they realised that it can't make calls so it's obviously not a giant iPhone!

nobody is saying it's a giant iphone: it's a giant ipod touch.
