    Hi

    I am considering of buying my first ever IPAD and even ditching the laptop afterwards but I have some questions please

    Can the latest Ipad multitask?

    For example;

    Can I use video chatting app Skype while using safari to surf the net?

    Can I open up two safaris resize & use them simultaneously or use two apps simultaneously

    Can I play my AVI & MKV files? (My understanding is Ipad can’t directly play these but there are some apps available that play them after simple drag & drop in iTunes? If it is the case I am more than happy to pay for an app to achieve this)

    Can you confirm if you have a crystal ball to confirm when & if widescreen IPAD will be available? :D

    I don’t want to buy one if the new version with widescreen is due very soon!

    Thanks

    to have multiple windows on screen at once i believe you would need to jailbreak and seek out the app that enables that and resizing. doesnt happen as stock.

    A widescreen iPad is most unlikely.

    You can have two tabs open in Safari like you can in any other browser.

    There are threads on here about MKV. AVI is no problem as there are several apps that will play them.
