What Are the Benefits of an iPad?

The Apple iPad is an 8- by 10-inch touch screen tablet computer that combines the features of a smart phone, a laptop, an iPod and a gaming console. First released in April 2010, there are two iPad editions: wireless and wireless with 3G; the latter makes the device usable wherever the user has cell phone access. Due to its portability and simplicity the iPad is so fantastic
The iPad is lightweight, slightly smaller than a magazine, it has a familiar feel and is easy to transport. The extended battery life of up to 10 hours works even for extended airplane trips.
Apps are the heart of the iPad. With many thousands of apps to choose from, the iPad can meet the needs of almost any user. GPS apps use your location to pinpoint local information to your iPad; for example local weather forecasts, news and even the closest pizza restaurant.
