New iPad owner. Love it! But need help with WiFi...
So my Palm Pre is getting a little long in the tooth, Sprint does not offer iPhone, and I am not a fan of Android. Nothing I want to waste my upgrade on.
One of my biggest wants is a smooth platform with a competitive and varied market for Apps. Bingo, I'm now the proud owner of a 1 week old iPad. Glad I got it just in time to start using 4.2.1! This is a glorious piece of hardware with great software.
But I have 2 concerns...
Despite never having any problems with tethering from my Pre in the past, the iPad refuses to get a downstream of more than 150kbps from my Pre's mobile hot spot. Other computers and devices get up to 2mbps. It's very frustrating especially since this seems to be a common problem exclusive to the Pre/iPad tethering combo. I've asked many sources, so now I'm hoping you iPad owners may be able to help.
Second, I'm wondering what to do about some apps. I've always had my eye on some iOS games since they're launch. Zenonia and it's ilk especially. But now that I got an iPad, instead of an iPhone or iPod, I'm wondering if it's just a matter of time before those games are ported to iPad, and should I wait instead of buying the zoomed in iPhone versions.
Can't wait until some smart fellow gives us a 4.2.1 jailbreak. In the mean time I'm learning all about my new awesome device and having a lot of fun!
