The Apple iPad has been out for a few months now and it’s really starting to gain some popularity. At first it was thought of as just a new tech gadget that people would let collect dust after the novelty wore off. But the iPad is showing that may not be the case. Every week that passes brings out new app with a new way to utilize the iPad. The following is a quick iPad review and I’ll also show you how you could get a free iPad.
One of the things that makes the iPad so interesting is that it’s almost like a laptop computer. But it kind of is a cross between a Macbook and an iPhone because of the apps. There’s no keyboard and there’s no phone capabilities but those are the only two things that make this different from an iPhone or a Macbook. It’s thin, portable, light weight and it has WiFi built in. You could bluetooth a keyboard to it if you wanted, and you could also get a Skype app for it as well. So it really has no limits and is a lot more like a Macbook and an iPhone than most people think.
Probably the most attractive thing to users is all the apps that are available. There are literally thousand upon thousand of apps available for the iPad. You can get any app that’s available for the iPhone and there are a few more that are exclusive to the iPad itself. For instance, there is a new app available called MaxiVista. This is a great app because it blurs the lines of compatibility between Macs and PCs. If you have a PC and you run windows this app is compatible. What it does is it allows the user to set it up as a second computer monitor on a PC. This is great for musicians, people who work with spreadsheets or people that trade stocks online for example. The iPad is really starting to show it’s potential.
Even though the iPad has only been out for a few months there’s already talk of the second generation iPad. This really isn’t a surprise considering that when the iPhone 3GS first came out there was talks beginning of the next iPhone right away. What is interesting is the fact that the second generation iPad could be out as early as the end of this year. There’s rumors that it will be available with smaller OLED screens, which would allow it compete more with the likes of digital readers like the Amazon Kindle (even though it seems to really have dug into the Kindles market already).
