John Lewis have posed a few interesting questions to me to address regarding the iPad 3 which I thought may prove interesting for my readers too.
Why do you think the iPad has become an everyday essential?
The iPad bridges the gap between 2 key devices which many use everyday – their mobiles & laptops – and provides a great device which can be even more portable than a laptop with a much larger screen than a phone for things like gaming and videos as well as general web surfing.
The iPad has also shown a huge amount of potential in the education market for learning, particularly among young children due to the interactive nature of touch screen devices as a learning tool.
Which sources of iPad rumours have you found to be most accurate?
As a techie I’ve heard a lot of people taking about the new iPad 3 release, particularly on social networking sites like Twitter which is often a handy tool for monitoring the rumour mill in real-time – It’s always worth doing a search on things like this to throw up some great links to rumours and tips! (and of course follow me @dansgalaxy)
What noteworthy changes are there in the new iPad 3 release?
There are some key differences between the iPad 2 and iPad 3, one of the first things you’ll notice when comparing the devices is double the screen resolution which should significantly improve the experience for HD video.
Thankfully apple have also improved the connectivity with 4G capabilities enabling those with 4G data can easily stream HD video on the go.
What are you most looking forward to trying out?
I’ve yet to own an iPad, or any other slate for that matter and I’d love to get my hands on it as it will provide a great tool for interacting and browsing on the go without the limitations of a small phone screen or a slightly luggish laptop, a nice light weight, large screen device is ideal in many situations.
What functionality would be on your future wish list for the iPad?
While the iPad 3 looks like a fantastic device one of the things it is lacking in comparison with Windows 8 slates which will be coming out are things like USB ports which would make it easier to move files on and off the device on the go.
