PC Magazine reviews the iPad

Reviews of the Apple iPad are starting to emerge. PC Magazine has given the Apple iPad the "Editor's Choice" recognition stamp. Here's a brief summary of the highlights.

Bottom line:
A difficult-to-pinpoint target customer and a few pesky omissions are overshadowed by the excellent overall experience you get with Apple's iPad. And it sets the bar high for competing products in this nascent Internet tablet category.

Pros:
Sleek design. Gorgeous, sharp, accurate touch screen. Improved iPod, Safari browser, photo and e-mail apps. iBooks look fantastic and titles are easy to purchase and download. A plethora of downloadable apps.

Cons:
Lacks Flash support. No camera or video recorder. No multitasking capability. Cover Flow is missing from the iPod app. Doesn't ship with a case. Earbuds aren't included.
