So we are now just days away from the release of apple new product the IPAD
Will it change the world or will it turn out to be a dud.
There has been a lot of negative comments but the preorders have been huge
Looks like another Marmite product that will divide opinion for many years to come. By then we will know where it fits in the marketplace.
The IPAD runs the phone OS which is a closed environment. All apps designed to run on it,have to be approved by apple and so are only available from one source. This is the same system that we are used in the gaming world As all game console are closed systems. For the majority of customers they pick a console on the game library available. Current Nintendo Wii is the market leader but there is space for several competitors. I believe we will also see this in the Tablet marketplace.
With the I Pad firmly being the number 1 choice. Also with ease of developing games Apple will become a gaming force to be reckoned with.
Current it will come with no multi-tasking. But is this such a problem. Our devices in our home are not capable of multi-tasking.. But what they offer is fast start-up times and easy operation. The idea that a computing device can work in the same way is really cool. I am sure you sick like I am of waiting 2-3 minutes for my PC to start-up just to access your e-mails / face book & twitter updates.
It has no flash. This is an inconvenience when currently surfing the internet. It’s main use in when streaming video. Due the impact the phone OS it having on the online world. You will see the world broadcasters creating apps which do not require flash and so side stepping the problem. Websites around the world are now starting to move from flash to HTML5 and this product will speed this process up.
It is also the perfect device for electronic print publication. You will find e books, magazines and newspapers flooding to the IPAD. Interactive content will be the draw and the ability to control it with your digits will create a more personal relationship with information. This will also create a paid model for the printed world inside the iTunes environment.
So let the revolution begin !!!
