Apple iPad: A Super Sized iPhone?

Apple Computer has just launched its touchscreen tablet computer that further obscures the line between a smartphone and a laptop. "More intimate than a laptop and so much more capable than a smartphone", the iPad is intended to serve as an instant-on Internet device which can used for browsing and e-mail, an e-book reader, audio-video media playback, as well as computing and gaming.
The much-anticipated tablet offers a 9.7-inch, capacitive multitouch, LED-backlit glass display with a 178 degree viewing angle. Interaction, input and navigation is exactly the same as that on the iPhone or the Touch -through intuitive finger taps, swipes, pinches and stretches. There is no physical keyboard. Apart from 12 next-generation multitouch native applications, it has the ability to run most of the 1,40,000 apps available on the Apple App Store currently. Then there is a new iBooks app to browse, buy and read books on a mobile device and a new multitouch version of iWork (Apple's office suite). Like with the iPhone and Touch, the 0.5 inches thick, 1.5 pounds iPad employs iTunes to sync contacts, photos, music, movies, TV shows, applications etc. to a PC or Mac. All apps and content you download from the App Store, iTunes Store and iBookstore will be automatically synced to your iTunes library. The iPad can be hooked to a new iPad Keyboard Dock if you want to use a full-size traditional (hardware) keyboard. The iPad will be launched in two versions: one with WiFi and the other with WiFi as well as 3G. The 3G version will be able to notch up speeds of up to 7.2 Mbps on HSDPA networks. The iPad, powered by Apple's A4 claims to offer a battery life of up to 10 hours which is built for a 1,000 charge cycles lifespan without a significant decrease in battery capacity over a typical five year lifespan. The WiFi only iPad will be available in March 2010 worldwide. 3G models will be available April onwards. The iPad can't multi-task, offers no Flash support, wireless syncing, handwriting recognition, and has no webcam winking at you. Yet two factors give it a definite edge: a humongous library of existing apps and very good value for money if you are on the lookout for a netbook or an ebook reader... because it is both and more...

Apple has always been surpassing customer expectation with such wonderful products. This time its the Ipad..!!


My initial reaction when I saw the Apple iPad was confusion. What functionality does this device offer over and above the Apple iPhone? And what market is Apple aiming this device at?

Too bad the iPad is just an update of the technology that has been available for more than five years, but the Apple fans probably don't know about it, so it's OK.


I am thinking of porting my blog to the book reader on Apple's iPad, at http://lucianspedagogy.blogspot.com/ (on doing well at school and Uni by using essay-writing miracles).


The iPad, reflex by Apple's A4 claims to offer a sequence life of up to 10 hours which is built for a 1,000 charge cycles lifespan without a considerable drop off in string capacity over a emblematic five year natural life.

@Smith_harry:
Thanks for adding that bit of information.


In short, Yes! It's just an iPhone on steroids. But I think Apple have now realised this and are planning significant upgrades.

For this reason, I won't be buying an iPad just yet...


Oops I meant flash, not Java, was up too late programming...
