Insider's Guide to the iPad

womanwithlaptop30719408.jpgThe announcement of the iPad on January 27, 2010 has changed the technology world forever. This computer device that is driven by the touch of your finger is amazing and has generated a lot of hype, disappointment, and respect from customers all over the world. If you have heard of the iPad and you want to learn more about it, keep reading on as we have developed an insider's guide to the iPad.

What is the iPad?
The iPad was developed by Apple along the same family lines as the iPod, iPhone, and so many other amazing devices. This device is a 9.7 inch multi-touch LED screen. It has a pixel resolution of 1024x768, making it clear and crisp. It comes with an A4 processor, making it one of the fastest wireless devices out there. It also includes 16-64 GB of flash storage and 802.11n Wi-Fi support. If you are a fan of Bluetooth, the iPad also offers Bluetooth 2.1, to help you stay connected.

When you pick up the iPad, you will notice how lightweight it really is as it only weighs 1.6 pounds, which is lighter than a lot of cell phones. You have 2 different buying options with the iPad, you can purchase the WIFI only version or you can upgrade to the WIFI and 3G version.

Battery Life
How long does the battery last? With its crystal clear display, it's easy to think the iPad battery will have a short battery life but it actually lasts for about 10 hours.This makes it ideal for watching movies and other things on the go.

iPad Cost
So how much can you expect to pay for this fancy device? This isn't a cheap device as the starting price is about $620. The latest versions with extra memory actually run upwards of $1,000.

Criticisms of the iPad

When any new device has as much hype as the iPad, there are going to be a number of critics looking for something wrong with it. The iPad is amazing and it is important to keep in mind that this device is not a Netbook and it never was intended to be a Netbook. The iPad is simply an entertainment device that is used to help you stay in touch with the world and to enjoy your favorite books, movies, blogs, etc. A lot of people have found that the nice aspects of the iPad is the ability to subscribe to and watch any MLB game you want right in the palms of your hands.

One frustration a lot of users complain about is that Apple has their AppStore on the device and you are going to need to pay Apple to download any of the apps and you cannot access them from other platforms.

While Apple does boast that the device has a 10 hour battery life, many of the users find that flash dramatically interferes with the device and can take away the battery life. The other downside is multitasking problems. Since you are restricted to the Apple Apps, you don't have the option to do a lot of multitasking although Apple is promising a "task manager" interface that will help you with this problem.

Another downside to the iPad is the cost. At $700 it's not exactly affordable to most customers, especially when you add in the cost of the memory and other things to see its true value is only about $280.00. You also need to purchase flash memory chips for the device and they cost you about $30 for a 16 gigabyte chip or $60 for a 64 gigabyte memory chip.
