Touching the Future

Yes, I am talking about the iPad. Got a chance to play around with the device yesterday and it does impress! Simple, elegant and revolutionary! (As most of the Apple products are)

Besides being lightweight, the iPad has a good sized screen and typing does not seem like an issue. I believe the apps will make all the difference and to start with iBooks is amazing.

Also, as we are moving from desktop internet to the world of mobile computing which I think is the future of consumer computing. The mad scramble is already underway to create the most popular and profitable apps for the iPad. In fact, according to TechCrunch, the iPad app store already has 3000 apps.


Read the Engadget review for in-depth analyis on the hardware and software.
"iPad -- more than a product -- it's a statement, an idea, and potentially a prime mover in the world of consumer electronics."

And Gizmodo gives you an insight into most of the apps on the iPad.

It will work wonders for all places where data entry on the go is essential.
I can see plenty of potential uses in the healthcare, education and media industry.

The future is here. It's just not widely distributed yet. ~ William Gibson
