So after writing a post about using an iPad at a conference, here I am at the RSC SW Conference in Exeter and I have left my laptop back at home and I have only bought my iPad.

Will it work for the whole day?

Will I be able to use it to make notes, check URLs, Twitter and Blog?

What about wifi? Well I have bought my Google Nexus One with me with it’s portable wifi so hoping that will work if the wifi doesn’t. I also have the iPhone as a backup.

I am not presenting so that is one less thing to worry about, though I can present with the iPad as I have the VGA connector.

It will be interesting, more later…
