iPad Computer Competition

Monday, August 17th, 2009

We’ve discussed what Apple’s version of an ipad might look like and what it might be able to do once released.  Let’s see how this stacks up against the competition.  There are a whole slew of people out there in the tech industry who believe Apple’s rendition of an itablet could be one of the best creations ever.  If they were to release an ipad of their own, what would they have to do to make this true?  The answer is in the competition – netbooks, e-readers and other itablets.  They obviously need to surpass what’s already out there.

We’ve already explored the differences between the Amazon Kindle and a possible Apple iPad in another article.  We believe if Apple releases an ipad, it will have a larger color screen that you can not only read e-books on, but then you can watch a movie or listen to some music you downloaded.  Using the internet is something you’re able to do with a netbook.  They are marketed basically as mini pc’s on which you can perform your basic internet searches, do some word processing, use spreadsheets and check emails.  Netbooks are more condensed versions of lap tops.  Ipads in turn, are more condensed versions of netbooks.

What sets any ipad apart from netbooks is the size for one.  Since many of them have either a touch screen keyboard or a QWERTY keyboard that slides in and out, instead of a fixed external one, you’re already saving on space, weight and portability.  Many speculate there might be the possibility of cellular use with what Apple might release.  Perhaps that could be a feature that sets them apart.  How far apart I don’t know, considering many users of ipads presently on the market use programs such as Skype to make internet calls.

As good as Apple’s version of the ipad might sound; there are nay sayers who believe their ipad will be too big to just put in your pocket making it no different than a netbook or lap top if you have to put it in a bag.  Also having to type while you hold an ipad might prove to be another challenge depending on how large they do wind up making it.  Both sides have valid points, but since the Apple’s internet tablet features are only based on speculation at this point, the true debates will begin once we see a finished product.

If you haven’t figured this out already, what many people don’t realize is that there are ipads already available on the market and have been for several years.   Companies such as Nokia and Archos both have their own versions of ipads with many of the multi media bells and whistles anticipated to be on Apple’s version.  If all is true and Apple does create their own ipad, we’ll have to wait to see what features they’ll have to surpass any present models on the market.
