What You Get Out Of Apple’s New iPad
Apple’s iPad is the newest addition to the 'i' series, following on from the iPod, iPhone and iMac. Computer users all over the world waited with bated breath for its release early in 2010 and there was tons of hype surrounding the product. There was uncertainty whether the iPad could live up to the hype but when you see what it has to offer you can see that it does all this and so much more.
At first glance the iPad features a slim design with a smooth finish. It is lightweight, weighing in at only 1.5 pounds for Wi-Fi only, and 1.6 pounds for the one featuring both Wi-Fi and 3G. This makes carrying it around that much easier. It features a height of 9.56 inches, a width of 7.47 inches, and is 0.5 inches thick this makes handling convenient whether it is on your lap, on a table or in your hands.
The iPad is fitted with the O.S 3.2 operating system, which is the same one featured in Apple’s iPhone. One your device is set up you will have access to hundreds of different apps from Apple’s website. This will allow you to personalise your iPad and get the apps that will help you with your business or simply improve the way you connect with people and enjoy your movies and games.
The touch screen in the iPad is very similar to the one fitted in the iPhone but incorporates certain advances, making for an effective interface. The screen has a 1024 x 768 resolution, which makes for stunning picture clarity. When viewing photos you can zoom as you please and view them in high resolution. When watching videos you won’t have to be distracted by keys and other buttons. The entire screen is dedicated to your movie.
With the technology fitted in the iPad itself you will get decent enough sound to go with your music, videos and games, but for a real kick you can get iPad accessories. The headset comes with a microphone and remote. This allows you to control your media without having to access the iPad itself. This makes watching movies and listening to music that much easier. It is also a great option if you are out in public and don’t want everyone else bothered by what you are doing, especially in quieter places.
Your iPad will allow you to synchronise data between it and your PC and other devices. This saves you from having to manually transfer everything over to your iPad. All you have to do is set your iPad up and connect it to your PC and you will then get an option for synchronisation. This is perfect for movies, videos and pictures that you always want to have on you.
Music and books
iTunes is one of the most popular apps around, and you definitely won’t be a stranger to it if you get the iPad. With iTunes you can get the latest music and listen to them before you buy them. Again, you can synchronise this with the music on your PC. If you love reading but don’t like carrying all your books with you then iBooks is the perfect app for you. You can buy books and read them wherever you are. This is also great for the environment.
You can see that the iPad has a lot to offer. Whether or not it will be suited to you and your unique lifestyle will depend entirely on what it is that you are into. Give the iPad a try and see where it will take you.
