Unboxing the iPad

Here are some pics I took while unboxing the shiny and new iPad.

Brand new, still shrink wrapped


This is the iPad, NIB, along with the official Apple iPad Holder and the always necessary AppleCare extended service warranty.

Box open, first view


Once opened, the iPad was just sitting right on top of the box.

Lifting out the iPad, the first impression is the weight of it. It has some heft to it. Here we see the back, still swaddled in it’s plastic protector.

Free of packaging and plugged in


With all of the plastic and box out of the way, I plugged the iPad into the MacBook Pro. That launched iTunes and the game was afoot.

The officai Apple holder for the iPad


Once I made sure it was alive, I disconnected the iPad and slid it into the holder. A snug fit, but fashionably black.

Booting up!


This is the first sync. I thought it went well, but it turned out that iTunes on the MBP decided it was a 2gb iPod, not a 32gb iPad. Irritating, but not fatal. Just started over.

And away we go…


So, this is the very first screen of the iPad. App icons are added to subsequent screens.

  1. Looks good Elmer.

    I also bought the Apple case, but I pre-ordered it so it has not come yet. I should have just not pre-ordered it and then bought it at the Apple store, but then I would not have had the privilege of having received the iPad first thing in the morning on the day of launch.
