    In the global media and users attention, the Apple Launch in San Francisco on January 27th. We had the opportunity to play with an iPad for long enough to have an idea of how it feels to use one and how the iPad looks in the real world. iPad - This is an apple launched another landmark products from 2007 since the iPhone. Now, we have a close for iPad main functions. And to see what are the most attention characteristic.

    Display
    The screen is 9.7 inches measured diagonally. So overall, its slightly smaller than a magazine. At just 1.5 pounds and 0.5 inch thin, you can take it anywhere. And a slight curve to the back makes it easy to pick up and comfortable to hold. Compare with currently the weight of the Internet notebook which has the mainstream of 7.0 pounds and more than 1 inch thickness, iPad is thinner and more convenience than ordinary notebook.
    iPad has averaging 9.7 inches display screen and the IPS screen has advantages such as visible Angle large, fast response time and color reduction accurately, etc. Another, iPad has 1024x768 pixel resolution ratio, the proportion of the picture with 4:3 can fully guarantee running all of iPhone application software and it will be very convenience to looking up books and newspapers, using check all Qwerty keyboard, etc.

    Connectivity Wifi, or Wifi+3G
    From fuselage, the iPad between mobile phones and laptop computers, but on the networks application, it takes all of their advantages. iPad will also provide support for apple 3G and does not support the 3G version, that the user can choose. In addition to supporting 3G networks, iPad network support will completely unlock and user can use 3G network, so long as has the corresponding network support whether in the any countries and regions. At the same time, iPad will not support SMS and call, namely, not like the mobile phone sending and receiving text messaging.


    iBooks
    iBooks is a new program for reading and buying Ebooks, which can free online to read in App Store. Then, you can buy any you like digital books. With built-in iBooks have various classic books and best-selling books, once these books purchasing, can be in your iBooks bookshelf and could be read only need gently touched one point. LED backlighting and high-resolution screen ensures the colour of sharp, so you also can has the pleasure of reading experience under the in the dim light environment

    Multimedia
    With the iPod app, all your music is literally at your fingertips. Browse by album, song, artist, or genre with a simple flick. To play a song, just tap it. iPad even displays album art at full size. Listen to your music with the powerful built-in speaker or with wired or Bluetooth wireless headphones.
    And as for video, the large, high-resolution screen makes iPad perfect for watching any kind of video: from HD movies and TV shows to podcasts and music videos. Switch between widescreen and full screen with a double-tap. Because iPad is essentially one big screen, with no distracting keypad or buttons, you feel completely immersed in whatever youre watching.
    But if you want to view the DVD, you also need assistant software. I search it on Google and find good DVD Ripper software Nidesoft DVD Ripper which could help you convert DVD to all popular video or audio formats which iPad supports easily. The simple process as follows:
    Firstly, you may download this software here: http://www.nidesoft.com/downloads/dvd-ripper.exe
    After download and install this powerful software, only four steps are needed to complete the conversion.
    Step 1: Insert the DVD disc into the DVD Drive.
    Click the Open DVD button, browse your computer, and find the DVD folder of the movie. (It is not only load DVD disc, but also could open a disk backups directory.)
    A DVD may have multiple titles and each title contains one or more chapters. After your DVD movie is loaded, its contents will be listed. Click + to show the chapters in a title. Then you can click any title or chapter to preview it in the preview window on the right.

    Step 2: Click the "profile" button and select the format for your player.
    Step 3: Click the "convert" button. Please wait before the conversion succeeds!
    Ok, you have ripped your DVD movies to other format you want, now just enjoy it. Another, I also have a try Nidesoft Video Converter which could convert video or audio files between all popular formats. If you have some video files which your player dont support. You may use it! I think these two software are good assistant for media player and for your mobile and iPad.

    Web Browsing
    The web browsing works really well. Just imagine an iPhone / iPod touch, but faster and with a big display. At this game, the iPad beats any other tablet that I've seen, by far. I tried some popular sites and they all work, but Flash is still not supported. As Google has shown with Google Voice, web apps are the way to get around Apple's approval.

    Gaming
    All the games that were demonstrated today were iPhone games in 480x240 that were stretched to 1024x768 using a good upscaling filter - it does look a little fuzzy but don't expect any miracles: the original content is very small. This is good news that changing resolution is very easy for developers, but it is harder to design new user interfaces that take advantage of the higher resolution. We know that Apple devices are a huge gaming platform, but "hardcore" gamers that need a pad or a keyboard+mouse will probably continue to criticize a touch interface for good reasons. The conclusion is that you can't be everything to everyone - it's that simple.

    Conclusion
    Through the above characteristics, I think iPad is a lovely device that gadget fans will lust after. From the new A4 processor to new iBookstore, apple iPad release just bring a slab of apple computer, also brought more applications, this will change the derivative mobile interconnection of many people life style

    Did you write this, or was it copied from a site?

    Either way, I still say a big "MEH" about this thing. If they can't figure out a way to support flash in this thing, then I won't purchase it. It's not the best way to browse the web if it doesn't support something that's on 75% of websites.

    Apple needs to get into shape here and listen to what the customers want, not just do whatever they want. Eventually people will realize that they can get something nicer and more functional, for a smaller price, that just may not look as pretty.

    I love my iPhone, but with all the new phones coming out with Android support (especially rumors of the Nexus One coming to ATT on 3G) I am seriously second guessing whether I plan on upgrading to the next iPhone, or switching to something with Android.

    Couldn't agree more zarile3. Sure Apple will sell thousands of these things, but without Flash, people are just going to see it as an over-sized iPod Touch, and realize that there is no point of getting it when you could have a handheld version in your pocket. And to be honest, it is a big iPod Touch, I have nothing against it, but until Apple catches on, the iPad won't go far.
