Mint condition iPads available at Freedom Mobiles
On 3rd April 2010 Apple released onto the excited world another product that would change the way we work and play in the digital life. Apple gave us the iPad, Apple’s take on tablet computing. Although tablet computing was nothing new at this point the technology and ideology was still in its infancy. If tablets were to take over from the laptop they needed to be thought of as more than a touch controlled laptop screen. It needed a unique UI, programs needed to be tailored this unique UI and it needed to do everything a laptop could plus more. The iPad was the first mass produced tablet to take this technology seriously.
Running on the same OS that runs the hugely popular iPhone, the UI is not technically unique. However it does work so very very well; at the end of the day why change something that obviously works? The screen size is the obvious difference between the iPad and the iPhone, measuring in at 10 inches it has nearly 6 times the real estate space of an iPhone. This allows better use of multitouch interaction (literally using all our fingers) with properly designed apps (of which there are thousands). In our opinion at Freedom Mobiles this allows a greater level of interactivity and user experience than a laptop could provide. If a keyboard is required then a good sized onscreen keyboard can be used. However the iPad is Bluetooth enabled and is capable of connecting to a Bluetooth keyboard if long periods of typing is required. This Bluetooth connectivity along with physical connections allows for a modular design; with the right creative mind anything can be created to interact with the iPad.
Traditionally the specs of the iPad have usually been the same as a next gen iPhone which is usually quite hefty. The first generation iPad has a 1GHz CPU much like the iPhone 4 and a dedicated GPU allowing for the smooth UI we are all used to from using the iPhone and also helps boost 3D apps such as games and specialist applications. Internal memory starts at 16GB, but HD space is becoming less and less of a problem today due to the possibilities of cloud storage and a constant Internet connection. Speaking of Internet connectivity the iPad is WiFi enabled and more expensive models are able to take a sim card and connect to 3G services for Internet on the go. The only thing the original iPad is missing is a camera, however due to the iPads modular nature a compatible camera can be bought and easily connected if desired.
The iPad is an amazing device. We here at Freedom Mobiles feel like we’re living in some futuristic utopia. With the iPad we can read our daily newspaper, read our favourite books and magazines, watch videos, play games, listen to music and communicate worldwide using email and instant messaging. The key thing here is that working on the iPad is actually fun. There is nothing a laptop can do that an iPad can’t; also there is very little the New iPad can do that the original iPad can’t.
If you wish live in our futuristic utopia then iPads are available from Freedom Mobiles at yesterdays prices.
