Thereâ€™s something about holding a new Apple device that feels unreal â€” and thatâ€™s not whatever Fanboy-side I have rearing its head. Apple devices are ubiquitous; their silhouette and feel and weight tends to become engrained in the brain. When Apple goes and shaves a few millimeters off, holding the new device is just a bit of a system shock. Thatâ€™s certainly the case here. Apple shaved 33% off of the thickness, and it really, really shows.
It seems Kumparak had a similar experience to Brian Chen. Didn’t think it was going to be a really big deal, but I think I’m going to be surprised when I get my hands on the iPad 2.
