    So I posted the other day about getting a new iPad air for my son.
    For myself, I used a Galaxy Note Pro, which had its issues but was really spitting cool.
    I dropped it.

    There was a huge spider in the bathroom, I want it to take a picture with my Note Pro and it slipped out of my hands, shattering the screen all over. The tablet sputtered but would no longer turn on.

    So I went to Apple, looked at the iPad Air and figured well, I'm here already, so...
    I had been told by Samsung that repairing my tablet would be over 350 dollars and they couldn't do it right away, I decided it was time for me to come back to Apple.
    So I bought 2 iPad Air + 2 smart cases.

    My wallet is traumatized, somebody hold me please, lol.

    However...
    THIS THING IS SO FREAKING COOL!!!

    And with Apple care, if I ever break my screen again, it will only be 80 bucks.
    I will no doubt miss the Note Pro, but I am glad not to be with a google product anymore.
    I got help from Support to set it up, everything is perfect.

    I will surviiiiiiiiiiiiiiive!....

    I am surprising my son with his new iPad tonight.

    Having trouble with activation: The sim card for the Note Pro is huge and won't fit in the iPad, so the verizon tech is trying to help me out. It looks like I have to drive to a verizon store to finish this. Urgh.

    No way.
    I mean... never say never, but I do love my Blackberry Q10, it does what it does without a glitch, it's perfect.

    I'm glad not to be with a google product anymore because I've had nothing but trouble with those: everytime I refused an update (this happened with several android products I've had) the update was ultimately forced on me and wound up messing up my device.
    Everytime I disabled google+ it re-enabled and was a battery hog as well as very invasive.
    There were so many issues I had to address every single day, sometimes several times during the day that it became really tedious.

    The Note 3 is a fabulous device... On Jellybean, that is. As soon as Kitkat took over, it became a worthless brick.
    And you can't go back.
    Well, it was my phone, I paid for it in full, how dare google force this on me?
    It's like vandalism, honestly.
    So with Apple, you can't reverse an update either but at least they don't force it on you.

    My Note Pro was a very cool tablet.
    It had Kitkat but it was built for it.
    (I'm a firm believer that android devices work best with the OS they shipped out with)
    It had it's issues, though but I had very cool features, yet I kept wondering what the next update would do to it.

    Honestly, if Blackberry made a good tablet I probably would have gone with that, but they don't.
    I've been playing with this one since I got it yesterday and so far I really like it. And the keyboard has been hugely improved.
    Oh, and I forgot to mention: it's got 128 GB.
    I can put all my work related stuff on there without worrying about running out.

    I'm not much of a "gotta get the latest newest thing" kinda person, I don't particularly care about the fingerprint thing either, I just want a tablet that works well for my needs.
    And my needs include work, school and play.

    So far I'm pretty pleased.

    Glad you are happy with the new iPad. I don't believe in cases/covers for devices as my frndz who used cases have also dropped their device and it got damaged. Only advice i can give is even if you have bought the best of best cases you need to be a little careful with your devices.
