About Apple iPad
In 1983, Steve Jobs, Apple’s co-founder, said in his speech that he looks forward to the day when they would be capable of putting "incredibly great computer in a book to be carried around and learn how to use in 20 minutes… and it possess a radio link so there is no need to hook it up to anything and still, you are in communication with all the other databases and computers in the world". Considering Steve Jobs was considered to be a visionary in the industry, he made it all happen with the introduction of the Ipad in 2010.
The iPad tablet, which was a larger version of the iPhone released in 2007, also boasted of the multi-touch finger sensitive touchscreen interface of Apple’s iOS. The company quickly went on to sell over 15 million iPads before the launch of the iPad 2.
Popularity in the Philippines
Before the arrival of the iPad in the local market, Filipinos were already shifting to mini laptops and notebooks for the simple reason of convenience. It is not surprising that when the Apple tablets became available it sold like hot pancakes and to date, it still dominates the market. The expensive price tag did not deter the locals from making a purchase; most considered it to be a worthwhile investment and time has certainly proven that it truly is. Even with the entry of the other tablets, the iPad remains to be a favourite for its elegant look and elite appeal.
The latest iPad tablets have certainly come a long way. Right now, customers can choose from the iPad Air, iPad 2, iPad Mini and iPad Mini with Retina Display. To help you make the right choice, here are the basic features of its more popular models.
The newest of the series is the Ipad Air, which is actually the fifth generation iPad. You can choose between Space Gray and Silver finish and WiFi or WiFi + cellular models. The tablet features a 9.7 inch retina display with LED backlit Multi Touch and 2048X1536 resolution. It runs on A7 chip with 64 bit architecture and M7 motion coprocessor and uses the iOS 7 mobile operating system. Other features include FaceTime HD camera, Video recording and iSight camera as well as built in apps such as iTunes Store, App Store, iBooks, Safari browser and Siri. Prices for the iPad Air range from $499 to $929.
The iPad 2 is almost the same size as the iPad Air at 9.5 inches but is cheaper at $399 to $529. It has a 1024X768 resolution and powered by dual core A5 chip. The tablet also comes with a 960X720 back camera. It is also the only one which does not have the application Siri, an intelligent assistant which uses the owners voice to send messages, make calls and set reminders.
The iPad mini actually started the revolution for smaller and handier tablets. It measures 7.87 inches in height and weighs just .68 pounds. The tablet also comes with an LED backlit multi touch display with IPS technology and 1024X768 pixel resolution. It is powered by a Dual Core A5 chip and runs on iOS 7 as well. Prices range between $299 and $429.
The iPad tablets made a huge impact on consumers, probably revolutionizing the whole mobile devices industry. It almost killed the laptop. The tablets also remained true to the brand’s elite image and its classy design and user interface remain to be the standard from which other tablets are based on.
Since its introduction, a lot of critics closed in on the fact that the iPad is a closed system, making it hard to share and download files. The iOS also prevents its users to copy or transfer certain content or file outside Apple’s platform without authorization. This digital rights management has given birth to "jailbreaking" a term used to allow applications not authorized by Apple to run on the iPad. Apple iPad accessories are also quite exclusive and distinct. They can only be connected to your computer or charged using the Lightning or 30-pin USB connectors. The price is also an issue as the tablets continue to be among the most expensive of all tablets in the local market.
