The Apple iPad tablet goes on sale in Singapore and Hong Kong in July. Here are some tips to prepare yourself for the iPad:

  • Get the 3G+Wi-Fi model of iPad, not the WiFi-only model. The iPad has severe limitations on the type of files you can load into the device so it's better to access your files via 3G when you need them.

  • Get a Micro SIM from your mobile operator. The iPad uses a Micro SIM, which is a smaller version of the SIM card.

  • Buy the official iPad case from Apple. The iPad has a tendency to slip out of your hands with its smooth back surface; there isn't a handle on the iPad. The case makes your iPad less slippery and more comfortable to hold.

  • Sign up for a MobileMe account so that you can track the whereabouts of your iPad if you lose it. Also MobileMe allows you to wipe out the iPad memory remotely if you have sensitive data in your lost iPad.

Don't forget to have fun while working on your iPad. Labyrinth 2 HD for iPad is a casual game that's very easy to play and looks great on the iPad.
