What Is An Ipad
Recent influxes of technological innovations have many people asking the question, what is an iPad? An iPad is a hybrid of a laptop computer and a smart phone. It is intended for media applications, surfing the web and personal communication.
The iPad uses the same operating system as the iPhone and the iPod touch. You can also run iPhone applications on the iPad. You can also run iPad specific applications.
The iPad has a fingerprint and scratch proof touch screen with a resolution of 1024x768 pixels. The display is 9.7 inches or 25 centimeters in its longer dimension. You can connect the iPad to the internet using a normal wi-fi connection.
You can also use an iPad for lots of other stuff too. Powerpoint presentations, web surfing, watching videos, playing video games, listening to music and much more. Some of these uses require external applications and hardware to implement, but are easily uploaded and installed.
Some businesses use the iPhone as a cash register. That is, without the cash drawer. DJ's find that they can save a lot of money and storage space by using an iPad for parties. Apps are constantly being created for a wide variety of uses. Therefore, the "Apple" iPad becomes more versatile every single day. Many iPad apps are free, but some you have to buy. If you have already iPhone apps, you can transfer many of them to the iPad as well.
"Apple" computers of all types are known for media applications, whether it's video creation or simply compiling an mp3 library. If you want an almost pocket sized gadget that does all of this, plus thousands of other things quite well, then you may want to pick up an iPad. Otherwise, stick with an iPhone or a basic laptop computer.
