A little over 3 years ago, my boyfriend (together with my family) bought me an iPad. It was - and still is (I use it to this day) - a first generation iPad, and the first iOS device I ever owned. It was also the first time I laid my hands on a tablet outside of an Apple store. Was it a good gift? If you're thinking of doing the same thing you might be wondering if it's really a good idea. I'm going to tell you why I think it's a great idea.
