I’ve read many reviews on the Internet and heard people saying that the iPad is quite heavy but I never truly believed it till I started playing with one for a full day. Yes, the iPad is definitely heavy.
It made me wonder what could possibly add to the overall weight? Could it be the thick glass touchscreen? Or is it the massive battery that powers up the iPad for weeks?
Holding the iPad with one hand becomes tiring very quickly. But it’s not like you have an option though. You have to hold it with one hand often, specially when using the keyboard. It’s not like you will be holding it with both hands and using your thumbs to type, cause I tried that and found it very uncomfortable.
I must say, the iPad is definitely a great entertainment device but Apple really should dramatically cut down on its weight. Maybe iPad 2 will be thinner and lighter.
