For regular people who have average interests in technologically advanced gadgets, the iPad is perceived to be just another expensive instrument from Apple. By average interests, we mean those who do not make it a point to research a newly launched product nor visit the manufacturer's website with passion.
Motivated by friend recommendations or family encouragement or some showoff at work, we decide to see what all the hype is about, so we go to the Apple website for more information. We aren't concerned with techie specifications. We don't care about processor speeds. We don't care about native support. What we do care about is: "What cool things can I do with the iPad?"
The iPad is a mobile computer; it is considered to be revolutionary because it is neither a laptop nor a personal digital assistant. It is unique in its own right, most especially because of its tablet frame. It is slightly larger than a netbook, by an inch or so, and it does not have a keypad. Its multi-touch screen interface is the basic input method for this device; however, it can also be docked onto a keyboard accessory for fuss-free typing.
In addition to its multi-touch screen, the iPad is also programmed to be multi-oriented, so the user can tilt the frame from portrait to landscape according to his preference. Multi-touch means that the user can "tap" and "drag" two items on the display at once by using fingers.
The iPad is mainly designed for information consumption in the form of web browsing, media, and gaming. Additionally, it can be used to create documents and similar content on a lighter level. The iPad is powered by thousands of apps that allow this device to perform at high-speed rate. For your convenience, Best iPad Apps 2012 lists the top 10 iPad apps in every app category.
Documents, spreadsheets and slide-show presentations can be created through iWork, which is Apple's answer to Microsoft Office. As for the entertainment apps, there are plenty to choose from.
The default web browser installed on the iPad is Safari, which is an Apple product. It should meet your needs but there are also others available in the App Store.
The iPad screen resolution is high enough to vividly display games, books, videos and photos and the speaker is sufficient but you can also buy stand-alone speakers.
Internet connectivity is powered by Wi-Fi and 3G. It possesses the highest speed in wireless Internet technology that overrides the speed of the hotspot offered in a specific location. To connect to a 3G network, the user must insert a 3G SIM card from a service provider. Once the owner has completed the 3G network service application, he can switch from Wi-Fi to 3G connection anytime.
App icons are used to organize the iPad display. The user can select his frequently used apps onto his Favorites section and these can be easily accessed.
The iPad is a cool device that has many uses. App developers are always coming up with useful and fun programs to entertain or enhance productivity. There is no telling where the technology will take us next.
