Email

The email app is great if you just want a central place to link you POP/IMAP/Exhange/GMail accounts instead of jumping from place to place. Overall, it's a very basic client, but it does the job. Read more about the iOS 5 email app.

Web Browsing

The Safari browser on the iPad is startlingly similar to what you'd find on a computer. The aesthetics are virtually identical to the computer-based browser, and the functionality is very much the same. This is a very good browser to cut your tablet-using teeth on if you're making the jump from computer to tablet. If you would like to read an in-depth description of the Safari browser on iOS 5, check out our description in our iOS article.
