Undoubtedly one of the hottest technology items on the market this year is the Apple Ipad. It has now set the bar for what tablet devices should offer in the way of online connectivity and book reading. The iPad will change the way people interact with content on the web or their favorite book or movie. Because it is so portable you can literally take it anywhere and with a 10 hour battery it will still be going after a long day. More and more applications are being built for the iPad that will take advantage of it’s large 10 inch color screen. The 3g enables models make surfing the web or interacting with your friends very easy and simple. The ease of use has not been duplicated yet but there are competitors that are releasing various models that will compete with the Apple iPad.
It should be an interesting holiday season as people who have not yet purchased a iPad or tablet PC look to see the various offerings that will be available. While Apple has limited the sale of iPads to their online store and select Best Buys you should start seeing the show up at other retailers like buy.com. I know that this will be on the top of my wish list since I already have an iPhone the iPad will just be a another tool that I can use while on the road. I am hoping that Apple will release a software update that could possibly incorporate the Facetime feature that they now have on the iPhone 4 and the latest iPod touch that was just released. It would be amazing to talk and see my family while on the road on a 10 inch screen with the clarity that I have seen on the iPhone 4.
