About ten years ago, Bill Gates attended a major electronics show and held up a new type of computer that was rather odd looking. It had a flat shape, but even more odd, had no keyboard. He then told a skeptical audience that within five years, that item he held would become very popular.
Bill Gates was introducing a device Microsoft called the Tablet PC. Microsoft’s invention never lived up to Gate’s prediction. It was really little more than a netbook, and not all that powerful. Now Apple has a similar version of Microsoft’s Tablet PC with the Pad. So why would the reaction to the iPad be any different??
Let’s take a look at what we have here. Apple has taken a computer, eliminated the keyboard, and flattened it out. It has decent power for something that size with a CPU about the size of the netbook computer. The iPad is thin being just one half inch thick. It’s lightweight, at 1.5 lbs. It’s operating system is a tad more efficient than that of an iPhone. It has an excellent touch screen that is ultrabright with awesome image clarity for a screen that is just 9.7 inches.
The iPad has versatility, being able to do web-browsing, e-mailing, storing photos, play music, play games, word processing, spreadsheets, presentations, and even show e-books. Now, we know that there are plenty other devices that can do these things. In fact, lots of them can do them even better than the iPad.
However, the beauty of the iPad lies in what you can do with one compared to what you can’t do with all the others. To start out, it is very portable, you can pick it up with one hand. It will fit on a person’s lap comfortably. It can be handed to another person as if it were a book. It will fit on a small coffee with room left for a coffee pot and four cups. It can be stored in a small bag. it can be handled with one hand and be used on a car, train, or plane. I think by now, you get the picture of what it can do. It obviously can be useful when considering how versatile it is. Do you want one yet?
So why is it so superior to the earlier Microsoft Tablet? Well, the answer can be found by looking at the technological capabilities of Apple. Apple has display technology that has no equal in the business. It has unmatched expertise in low power electronic engineering. Besides these things, it also has it’s patented multitouch technology that is the envy of the industry. Other companies attempts to match this technology have always been a dismal failure. All these superior technologies have been incorporated into the Apple iPad. Is it any wonder that it is such an amazing computer device?
So, can you see why the Apple iPad is such a big success? Do you want an iPad NOW?
