The other features that are common with iPads are in built speakers that will enable one to hear audio form an I-pad without any external aid.

iPad technology also integrates a camera in the product and gives users a means to take photos and record motion pictures.

This device uses I phone’s technology and adds more to it since it can even be used with IPad accessories such as; keyboards, earphones with or without microphones and VGA, composite and component connectors.

Main features

Design – Apple iPad – The design of the iPad is not quite revolutionary – it is very similar to the design of the iPhone.
Specifications – Apple iPad -The iPad has a 1 GHz processor and offers several versions. It is made to suit everybody’s expectations and why not to even surpass them – something that we all expect from Steve Jobs and company.

Operating system – The operating system and the software don’t offer us anything new – if you have worked before on Mac, then you won’t have significant problems adjusting to the iPad – it’s quite easy to use and very intuitive – something that has been highly appreciated by non technology geeks and by just many normal people without any special skills in computing etc.

Apple iPad for reading

What about reading books on the iPad – yes, that will be possible – via subscriptions to various sources. The ebooks will have a special format and will be provided by a library store. The Apple iPad review should include something for newspapers lovers, right?

Many online magazines and newspapers have been highly enthusiastic about the prospect if iPad – it offers their readers a new kind of experience concerning the reading and this seems to be crucial for the online media these days. Many newspapers and magazines have been experiencing trouble reaching out to more and more readers and that puts the industry at risk. Monthly subscriptions are available for many international magazines, newspapers or blogs.

Let’s say something about the price in this Apple iPad review. The price and the availability of the iPad are probably its main issues – the tablet is not for somebody on a budget. The price can vary depending on various subscriptions to the sources used for downloading ebooks or music (check out the prices of iPad and Kindle ).

Conclusion

The iPad is far superior to the Kindle concerning functionality but there are still some things that are missing from the menu according to many consumers’ reports –

Voice: it is not possible (for now) to use the tablet to call somebody or to receive calls.
Flash: The tablet doesn’t manage the technology of Adobe, which will be troublesome for the users needing daily access to the Web and its applications. No camera.
The multitasking: this will be quite an issue for the iPad – running more than 2 applications at the same time will pose some problems and can seriously slow down the machine.

So, how to conclude this Apple iPad review? All in all, Apple’s iPad is easy on the eyes and looks good in your hands but it’s far from perfect and its everyday use is questionable.

Thanks for reading our Apple iPad review.
