Once touted as just a glorified Kindle, the unfortunately named Apple iPad is making big waves with its powerful and innovative technology. Within 80 days of its release in the US, the iPad sold over three million units. So what’s all the fuss about? What’s so great about the iPad? Apple took everything that was good about the iPhone and then made it better, bigger, and faster.
The iPad’s innovative A4 processor is what makes it lightning fast. The A4 uses technology in which the system’s processor, graphics core, and memory are all crammed together in the same 1 GHz chip. By combining these functions the iPad is faster, more efficient, and more powerful overall. Users say the speed is extraordinary; webpages load almost instantly, screens scroll with ease, and moving back and forth between apps is a breeze. All this is much better than all the previous variants of iPads. If you are thinking about upgrading your old tab then you should compare all the different features of the tab that you are thinking about buying with Apple’s iPad on https://www.dfydaily.com/, which will help you in deciding the better device according to your needs.
Apple set the touch-screen bar with the iPhone display, and it only gets better with the iPad. Using a technology called “in-plane switching” the iPad can realign the molecules of its 9.7″ screen for optimum viewing at almost any angle. When combined with the system’s built-in accelerometer, which tells the iPad which way it’s turned just like in the iPhone, meaning the screen has a massively wide viewing range compared to most screens. Of course, the oleophobic (fingerprint oil resistant) layer on the touch screen is just as durable and easy to clean as on the iPhone.
If you get the Wi-Fi enabled iPad then you’re the proud owner of not one but two Wi-Fi antennas so powerful they were temporarily banned in Israel for fear they would interfere with existing wireless networks. Add the GPS and cellular antenna and you’ll stay connected from virtually anywhere. Of course, there are many other features worth noting, such as the ambient light sensor, the multi-language and character simultaneous display option, and the 10-hour battery life.
Despite the hoopla, there are still plenty of people who think the fuss is undeserved. While none deny the benefit of the iPad’s massive processing power and resulting speed, there are still plenty of complaints about basic functionality; specifically, the lack of a camera, the lack of Flash support (a must for any Hulu fan), and the user’s inability to multitask. Another detriment is that the system’s SIM card is micro-sized – meaning you’re stuck with AT T; as your service provider until other providers start making cards of the same dimensions.
The Apple iPad is today’s hottest new device for good reason. The A4 chip is a marvel of modern engineering in its power efficiency and sheer speed and is undoubtedly the future of processing. The screen display and level of connectivity are both impressive, though neither can be called the most cutting edge technology. Is Apple really “defining the future of mobile media and computing devices” as their press releases claim? Despite a few grumbles, it appears that they’re coming remarkably close.
