There it is. The infamous iPad… after reading an article about the release of the iPad 2 coming out soon, I once again started thinking about my feelings on the tablet. And honestly, I still don’t get it. I didn’t get it when it was first released, and I don’t get it now.
Yes, it’s cool. Yes, the resolution of the screen looks beautiful. But to me, the iPad is simply a sort of combination of a Mac computer and the iPhone, of which I have both, so why would I want an iPad? I admit, Fruit Ninja looks much cooler on that big iPad screen than on my comparitively tiny iPhone screen, but I just don’t understand shelling out hundreds of dollars when you could purchase a full computer for a few hundred more.
I will say I like the new design in white, though. Only because I’m a sucker for the way Apple makes white appliances; I think it looks clean and beautiful and I’m still wondering if the iPhone 4 will ever be released… anywho, maybe it’s just me. My aunt and uncle each have an iPad, my roommate’s 14-year-old cousin has an iPad…but I still don’t get it. I’ll just stick with my iPhone and MacBook!
