Tablet computer systems have been in existence for quite a while, but they had not caught on the wider consumer marketplace. Almost all of them have been pitched for highly specific reasons in the corporate setting. It was Apple that created the tablet computer that reached more than 3 million customers within only 80 days. It was the Apple iPad. The field of tablet computing was never the same again.
Developing a New Mobile Gadget Genre
Reading the specs of the iPad, one needs to ask why it had never been done before. But a closer inspection indicates that iPad needed the prosperity of the Apple iPhone and the Kindle to create market receptivity to it. Multimedia, internet surfing and interacting on the iPad bring a unique experience.
Powered by a 1 GHz Apple A4 SoC which had the ARM Cortex A8 processor inside it and running on the same platform as the iOS4 that would soon run the brand new apple iPhone 4 after it, the iPad was the less powerful laptop. However, it wasn’t designed to replace a laptop. It had been intended to be better than a laptop in the multimedia and internet surfing departments, with half the load of the lightest laptop at 1.5lbs and half as thick.
You could state that a laptop could easily get the job done, together with a cell phone. But Apple took the gamble and gave the world that which was better than typically the most popular smartphone available, the apple iPhone, and gave it the size that made the laptop a big internet and multimedia gadget.
In the words of Apple Boss, Jobs, the Apple iPad is “much better than the usual laptop, much better than the typical smartphone.”
Much better than the Apple iPhone and Laptops
The Apple iPad has a few outstanding features no laptop has. Its 9.7-inch Insolvency practitioner (In-Plane Switching) Brought backlit display just outclasses all laptops. With XGA resolution and 16 million colors, watching a film on it while on the highway doesn’t have competition.
You can view clips or images in any orientation because of its 3-axis accelerometer. You do not even require a keyboard even though this is optional from the proprietary 30-pin docking connectivity. Its capacitive touch screen with multitouch and gesture input capacity is all that’s necessary. If that feature was the important thing that catapulted the apple iPhone to legendary status, wait until you have it on the iPad’s bigger screen.
It will get better with a battery life that enables you to watch three full movies end to end, which no laptop can perform at this time. You receive 10 hrs of movie watching or 140 hrs of non-stop music listening on one full charge.
Internet surfing is a fulfilling experience on screens bigger than the largest screen on the cell phone. The Apple iPad offers Wi-Fi compatibility 802.11 a/b/g/n and the choice to go HSDPA over a 3rd generation for better surfing experience. The Apple iPad turns into a phone just by utilizing a headset or its speaker and microphone facilities.
