Design – The design is not quite revolutionary – it is very similar to the design of the iPhone.
Specifications – The machine has a 1 GHz processor and offers several versions. It is made to suit everybody’s expectations and why not even surpass them, something that we all expect from Steve Jobs and the company.
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 Apple’s machine. 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? Is the iPad the best tablet for reading books?
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.
This review should include something for newspaper lovers, right?
Many online magazines and newspapers have been highly enthusiastic about the prospect if the iPad – it offers their readers a new kind of experience concerning reading and this seems to be crucial for 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 review. The price and availability are probably its main issue. So 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 ).
In a iPad vs Kindle comparison, 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.
Multitasking: this will be quite an issue for the device – 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 device is easy on the eyes and looks good in your hands but it’s far from perfect and its everyday use is questionable.
