I am sure a few people will roll their eyes when I tell them I finally bought an iPad but all I can say is I had no choice. Literally, there are no other viable options presenting themselves and though I hear promises of late 2010 or early 2011 nothing seems to pan out. As a customer, I had reached the point that, despite my loyalty to other brands and my general dislike for how Apple does business, I needed a product that was not being offered elsewhere and I had to ‘cross over to the other side’. I had really been banking on the Microsoft Courier – but that fell apart. What does this mean for the brands I usually buy? Since I am loving the iPad it does not bode well. Though I will still need other devices, I am no longer monogamous. From now on my relationship status is “It’s complicated”.
Fittingly posted from my iPad.
