Apple’s latest offering, the iPad, is quickly becoming a common sight wherever I go. I have seen it not just in the stores but also in coffee shops, restaurants, TV shows, and just about anywhere. It seems that more and more people are being convinced into buying this latest gadget. Some people I know would love to buy this tablet they would even go to such lengths as taking out a cash advance credit just to be able to buy it. Unfortunately, many buy it simply because they want to be cool by having the latest gadgets.
So what is all the hype anyway? It made me curious and I wondered whether the iPad is something I would want in the future. The way I see it, below are possible reasons for me to get one.
- It is an e-reader which is an enormous perk for me because I love to read books. Imagine being able to bring tons of books anywhere. Although I would miss the feel and smell of the pages of a good book, the ability to store not just books but movies as well is very tempting. Also, my kids would certainly be entertained by this cool gadget.
- Anyone who has an iPhone or iPod Touch would understand how addicting the games can be, even my kids cannot get enough of it. The iPad promises to take this gaming experience to a whole new level.
- Although the iPhone is okay for internet on-the-go, I have always preferred a bigger screen. The iPad will definitely provide me with a better internet experience.
However, I could also think of several reasons why I should not get it or maybe postpone getting it. First of all, everyone expects Apple to release a newer and better version especially since this is iPad’s first version. So maybe I will give myself more time to think about it.
