We have no idea how many iPads Apple were sold on April 3--estimates are approaching 800,000--but we do get the sense there might now be enough and if you have your hands on one of these, you justifiably are an early tech adopter. So we invite you to share your first impressions with the world, other iPad owners and those who are still waiting to purchase one.
We will use a Mingleverse Mingle room, a browser-based 3D telepresence service, for our iPad event. You can join free of charge and can move freely in a virtual room that allows us to share images, online video and a live video feed. It is a great communication platform with text and audio chat that should enable all of you to get an interesting first look at the iPad. So Apple and god will, we will get our hands on an iPad as well and wait until the mingle to unbox the tablet.
The mingle will take place April 6th at 5 PM PST. The spots will be given away on a first come – first serve basis. We highly recommend a reservation of your space as we cannot guarantee availability later on.
To participate in the mingle, you simply need a web browser and a headset, if you want to communicate with others in the room. If you have a webcam, you can use that too!
