The iPad is the latest gadget by Apple that combines the interface of the iPhone with the functionality you could find on a personal computer and turning it into a tablet computer. The boom of tablet computers has made it so much easier to have a device that you can carry just about everywhere with all the functionality you could expect.

And what kind of functionality are we talking about? First of all, for the fact that you have access to the Apple Store and with it, to the numerous apps that are being developed for the system every day. That way you can be assured that whether you want to use the iPad for, you’ll have a solution ready for you.

One thing that truly stands out in the device is the screen, which is really clear, vivid, with great darks, and one that you can use even in the sunniest places, unlike most screens. It’s truly amazing what Apple has accomplished with it. Every time I look at it I still get impressed at how good it actually is. I own the iPad 3 and the retina display really makes a difference in terms of what is the standard in any type of display.

A great thing about the iPad is that you can browse the web with it and still take it everywhere you want. It’s like being able to take the world wide web with you. And you know as well as I do that the information in on the Internet. Taking it everywhere means that you’ll be able to get access to any piece of information on the go (for as long as you can get an internet connection, which isn’t too hard these days, with all the technology around us). I’m sure you’ll take advantage of the fact that you can read your e-mail, chat with your friends, read your latest e-book, listen to your favorite music, and watch that movie that you’re lacking time to see.

The portability is really what it’s all about. The battery life is also great and will last for an entire day as you’d expect. But it can be costly. Unless of course you opt to go to the free route. You may have the luck to get access to a testing unit from Apple. It’s a fully fledged model that isn’t a work in progress. Simply, you’ll have access to the latest firmware updates before everyone else for testing purposes.
