Today I got my hands on the Google Nexus 10 in order to do a proper comparison with the iPad, and to stay up to date on the iPad’s closest competitors. As you’ll recall, I already did a review of the Nexus 7, and came away with a favorable impression of the device.
For the Nexus 10, a lot is the same as the Nexus 7, but a lot has changed as well. The most obvious difference is the form factor. This tablet competes directly with the iPad as far as size is concerned. You’ll also notice a fairly original design, and one of the best, if not the best, screens on a tablet that you’ve ever seen… Read More
It’s a little weird that I’m unboxing what is basically the same product that I unboxed back in March, but that’s the way the product cycle rolls these days.
True, the new iPad 4 features a CPU that is twice as fast, and graphics that are twice as fast. It also features an updated FaceTime HD camera for high def video calling, along with the new Lightning connector. With all that said, practically everything else is exactly the same as the iPad 3, and it comes in at the exact same form factor.
As you can see, for the first time I opted to get an iPad in White. This will help me to quickly tell the difference between this and the previous generation iPad.
What about you? Did you decide to get an iPad 4, or are you holding out for a more drastic upgrade?
I went to several Walmart’s last night at midnight in search of the elusive iPad mini, but alas, no dice. Fortunately I already had one ordered from the Apple Store as a backup plan.
I literally just received my mini in the mail via FedEx about 30 minutes ago. As always, I could hardly contain myself, but I made myself wait before tearing open the box so I could showcase this unboxing on video for you guys.
Have you received your iPad mini yet? What do you think about it thus far? Stay tuned, as we’ll have tons of comparison articles and videos in the coming hours and days.
There’s really not a lot to say here, because if you’ve ever used a Smart Cover before, you know exactly what to expect. With that said, there are, as we’ve previously noted, some changes with the way the hinge attaches to the iPad mini.
The magnets are now wrapped in polyurethane and micro-fiber, presumably to prevent the Smart Cover from scratching the mini’s surface like full sized Smart Covers have been known to do. The all enclosed hinge also serves up a cleaner look when compared to its big brother.
What do you think? Have you ordered a Smart Cover to go with your iPad mini?
Just about an hour ago I was able to get my hands on a brand new 32GB Slate Black 5th generation iPod touch. Here is our official unboxing video of Apple’s revamped mobile gaming everything device.
The first thing you’ll notice about the new iPod touch is how thin it is when compared with the iPhone 5. If you thought Apple’s new iPhone was thin, wait until you get a load of the 5th generation iPod touch!
The second thing you’ll notice is how drastically better the 5th generation is when compared to the previous generations. The new iPod touch is leaps and bounds above any previous touch when it comes to build quality. Even the screen looks amazing. What do you think? Oh, and uh, the Lightning cable is $19, not $29 like I mistakenly stated in the video.
I always thought that unboxings were only for video, but I guess they can appear in photo form as well. We look forward to bringing you a video unboxing, but in the meantime, these shots are admittedly pretty mouth watering. Read More
That distinctive scent felt upon unwrapping a newly purchased Apple product from its packaging? File this under the you-better-believe-it drawer: a trio of young artists from Australia have created a new fragrance that replicates the smell of a new MacBook Pro.
Based on a few ordinary aroma ingredients from suppliers in the south of France, the fragrance aims to recreate that unique and sexy olfactory experience associated with unboxing a shiny new Apple product.
I don’t know about you, but I always stick my nose inside the box immediately upon unwrapping an Apple product (I also flip through magazines backwards and smell the shiny pages, too). Read More
There’s really not much to say here. If you’ve ever used or seen an Apple TV 2, then you know exactly what to expect here. Physically the two devices are indistinguishable.
The only difference between the 2nd generation Apple TV and the 3rd generation Apple TV is that the latter supports 1080p resolution courtesy of a new A5 single core chip. Other than there, everything inside the box, all of the connectors — everything — is the same… Read More
While the rest of the world has to wait until later this week to see Apple’s new tablet up close, the folks over at Tinhte.vn appear to have already gotten their hands on one.
As noted by MacRumors, the Vietnamese site posted a video last night of the first unboxing we’ve seen of the new iPad. The slate’s packaging doesn’t seem to be much different than that of its predecessor, but you can immediately spot the new Retina display… Read More
Apple’s engineers and designers are world-renowned for their attention to details, but to what extent? Well according to Adam Lashinsky’s new Inside Apple book, the iPhone-makers have their own unboxing room — yeah, unboxing room.
If you’ve just ordered a nano, or you already have the latest hardware refresh, that means you’ll need to upgrade the firmware to receive all of the new features Apple touted at yesterday’s media event.
In this video, we unbox a brand new iPod nano, upgrade the firmware, show off all 18 watch faces, and touch on various other new features like the enhanced Nike+ app, and new Home screen layout… Read More
