The iPad: Inside and Out

The idea of a tablet computer has been around for years. Back in 1964, The Rand Corporation produced the Grafacon, also known as the Rand Tablet. This $18,000 computing device had two main components: a screen and a drawing surface. The user would hold an electronic stylus and draw on the surface. The results showed up on the screen. But that did not stop other companies from producing their own version of the tablet. And the most successful among them was Apple. They were able to produce three generations of the iPad. Now, customers love them so much that many opt to sell their old iPads and buy the latest version. But how much do they know about the iPad?

Contrary to what many people think, the iPad is not just a bigger iPod Touch. It is a multimedia device that has features which you can find in the iPhone and the iPod Touch. Its design is a mash-up of the iPhone and the MacBook. If you may have noticed, the display of the iPad looks like the iPhone, the iPod Touch and the MacBook Pro. The screen itself has the same touch technology as the iPod Touch and iPhone.

In the inside, you will see that the iPad uses IPS or in-plane switching technology. Because of this, the iPad is superior to standard computers with the TFT screens found in laptops and flat monitors. The IPS display has clearer display quality and color production. This, however, only exists in the first two generations of the iPads. If you want a better display quality, sell your old iPad and get the third generation.

What Do Experts Think About the iPad

Everyone was excited when the first iPad was unveiled on January 27, 2010. It was a commercial success for the Apple Company. Still, it received many criticisms, both negative and positive, from customers and pundits alike. Some even thought that the iPad was just rip-off of the iPhone, which they considered more efficient. Besides, apps were not enough to consider them equivalent to software programs on a personal computer; therefore, these Apple tablets were still inferior to laptops and desktop computers. It would not be enough to just rely on an iPad. There would still be a time when you would still use your laptop or a personal computer for work, study, or even games. Moreover, pundits noted that the worst part of having the iPad is that you can never replace its battery.

The only noticeable thing that distinguished the iPad from smartphones and laptops is the unavailability of the Adobe flash player. The iPad does not support Flash, which means you will be missing a lot of things in the Internet. But then again, will the absence of the Flash player affect your iPad experience?

Many also compare the iPad to Amazon’s Kindle Reader. The battle for supremacy and market share is ongoing. Some say that the Kindle is still the better e-reader because it gives you the closest experience to conventional reading. But then again, the iPad is more than just an e-reader. It can do more than what a Kindle Reader can do. The iPad is the better tablet because it is a full-feature digital media device.
