Steve Jobs, president of Apple, said that the iPad is “the most important thing I’ve ever created.” Indeed, Apple, and its enthusiastic fans believe that it was “surprising and revolutionary device”, with its lightweight large Multi-Touch display and easy to use operating system, and that it will be a new era in the field of information processing.
But not everyone in the tech industry is delighted by the iPad. The opposite camp considers internet tablet less useful than a netbook, speaking disparagingly about the device and describing it as a failure.
In any case, there never had been a device like Internet tablet. Its operating system – iPhone OS (internet phone) is already familiar to millions of people and so easy to use that even children enjoy it freely.
In a sense, the internet tablet – it is really a great iPhone and, thus, is not entirely new device. The degree of settling in the iPad is quite low, but, nevertheless, convenient to the operating system makes it desirable for the consumer. Compare it with the very complex devices, released earlier that disappoint users who have to learn a new interface, and it’s clear that Apple has managed to create a successful business model.
Management at the head of Apple with Steve Jobs seeks to create a device, some features of which would provide the best opportunities for its use. Such intent often leads to omission of some necessary functions. In the case of the iPad, it has no features that you would expect from any modern laptop or netbook for the same price: high-speed processor, multi-tasking mode and USB-ports.
Regardless of your opinion of iPad, one thing is for sure: people want it. During the week, 450,000 people have spent over 500 dollars to get this new object of desire, which exceeded even the sale of the original iPhone.
As with all new products Apple, it seems that people want to buy them, even if they do not know exactly how they will use them. This is especially true in the case with the iPad. It’s not quite a full-fledged computer, and not very portable device. So what is this?
The absence of a physical keyboard, mouse, and compatibility with desktop applications suggests that it is not a device for creating information or perform a serious operation.
However, the internet tablet is perfect for consumer information, that is, viewing photos, Internet, movies, e-mail, computer games and reading books and comics.For these actions he was really good.
