Apple has launched a new tablet gadget known as iPad. Lovers of Mac were clamoring for the company to introduce such a tool in the market. If Apple had failed the expectations of its fans, its stockholders as well as customers would have been let down. It was impossible to reduce the momentum. The iPhone is a miniature computer. Apple has succeeded in showing the world what it is capable of doing. All they had to do was upscale the brilliant interface to a bigger device. Of course, it was not as easy as I am making it out to be.
The technical challenges involved in producing the iPad were huge. The company had to design a completely different operating system that was not like the Mac computer. It had to write core applications afresh and change the whole way a computer works. Apple is not the first company to release the tablet computer just as it did not release the cell phone or MP3 player first but it is a company that drives the public wild with its products. The company has a head start because the iPhone has more than 14,000 apps. The iPad has been designed for taking advantage of these apps. iPad is able to run the apps of iPhone at the original size or double the size. So, the screen of the iPad is nearly filled. Developers will find it easy to rewrite the apps of the iPhone for the iPad in order to take advantage of the new features. The “i” in the iPad implies the Internet. Surfing the net on the iPad will be an enjoyable experience.
