What is iPad | In Depth information

Having been seeing all over tech cyberspace thought of compile an article to cover in depth of iPad .so here it goes.

             The iPad's 9.7-inch, LED-backlit screen dominates the face of the device  with a wide black bezel surrounding it. Like the iPhone 3GS, the iPad’s screen is oleophobic (oil-resistant), so fingerprints easily wipe off. Measuring 9.6 by 7.5 by 0.5 inches thick and weighing 1.5 pounds, the iPad is a bit on the heavy side:

Though the Apple iPad's interface may look familiar, the hardware is substantially bigger than on its iPhone/iPod Touch siblings. The main menu closely resembles that of the current iPhone OS, with four icons across and four rows down, plus Safari, Mail, Photos, and iPod icons in a row at the bottom. The icons have the same design as those on the iPhone; they include calendar, contacts, notes, maps, YouTube, iTunes, App Store, and Settings. One new item is a dedicated icon for videos.

iPad FAQ

When will I be able to get one?

If you hit the stores, I suspect your local Apple store may have some in stock. This isn’t iPhone level hysteria. If you order one now on-line, though, you won’t get one via UPS until April 12.

If I go today, will I still be able to get one?
Call first, but I doubt they’re totally sold out everywhere.

WiFi/3G or WiFi-only?

I’d say 3G, but that’s just me. I’d love to be able to use this at press events without WiFi. Your mileage and use case will vary.

Can I jailbreak it?

Not yet, but GeoHot has been working on a method that may soon work.

Will I break it?

Probably not but get the case if you plan on traveling. It’s really nice.

Will I scratch it?

The screen is really big but on par with a standard laptop screen. The back is made of aluminum. It won’t scratch any more than a MacBook Pro will.

How are ebooks?

Aah-mazing! The Winnie the Pooh title I read so far was great – pictures were excellent – and the rest of the media, including The Elements, are fascinating. This is not CD-ROM era stuff. This is the Diamond Age.

How are the games?

The HD games are great. I’m trying more out as we speak, but Real Racing HD is great.

How are movies?

I wish I could take a long flight. Having this on my lap would be great.

What size?

Go big or go home. 64GB.

I travel a lot and want to read. I can sometimes leave my Kindle “on” but will they make me turn it off when the plane takes off and lands?

Heck yeah. This thing will definitely set off bells.

Should I get one?

This is 1st Gen Apple hardware. You pay the price for early adoption. There is the potential for a built-in camera down the line. Are do you already own a Kindle and just want it for ebooks? Don’t get this right now. Are you a fan of Apple and must have everything they produce? Get thee to the ebookery. Do you want this to be your book iPod? Don’t get the iPad. Do you want to watch movies on the plane? Get this thing.

Again, there’s no telling what iPad 2.0 will be like but if history is a guide, it will be slight hardware improvement and some new features. It’s not like the iPod Touch got a camera last upgrade, right?

Pros and Cons


Best-in-class touch interface.
Screen withstands scratches well.
Large display shows pics and images beautifully.


Prone to glare and fingerprints.

Bottom Line

Apple looks set to shake up casual computing with tablet that offers clever design and ease of use. But that streamlined approach may also be the iPad's weakness.
