We round-up the first opinions on the iPad and find out if it was worth the wait?

BBC

“The device, which looks like a large iPhone, can be used to watch films, play games and browse the web. ”

The Telegraph: Claudine Beaumont

“”iWork looks great — Keynote very slick. Makes iPad more than just a plaything.”

GIZMODO

“The backlight for the display is LED, but otherwise they use IPS technology, for better off-angle viewing, claims Apple.”

engadget

“Put this down as something else rumored that’s come to fruition today. Apple’s just announced iBooks, an e-reader app and bookstore for the iPad, using the ePub format. We’re seeing prices around $12.99 to $14.99 so far… looks pretty slick!”

GDGT: Ryan Block

“Will people buy it in droves? Is there actually room for a device between smartphones and laptops? That I don’t know — I’ve always been skeptical there’s room for a third category in there. But if there is a contender for this space, this is it.”

ubergizmo

“The Maps demo was really fast, so I’ll venture to say that they’ve got WIFI-N (or a local cache). We’ll have to see it in action for ourselves. But I repeat: Maps are really fast”

CNET

“The Apple iPad, freshly launched this evening, looks like it’s rocking a much-expanded version of the iPhone operating system, and that means our dreams of Flight Control on the big screen are coming true.”
