Why did apple make the iPad? (read details)

it's just like the iPod touch 3G, but it can't multitasking, it won't fit in your pocket, and it is way more expensive. WOW!

Cuz it has lots of cool features and it is very BIG, so they think they will be able to sell allot of iPads

It's just better for surfing and reading magazines and books, and it much nicer to watch videos on, but your right its more of a preference thing I guess, its more like a laptop cuz you can type on it easily with two hand, I think the touch is more of a mp3 player, I think tablets are they way to go. I love my iPad I take it everywhere, takes up no room in my pack.

Because it is bigger. And more expensive so they can make $. Most people strain their eyes to read text on the iPod because the screen isn't as big, but the iPad screen is like 10x the size of an iPod touch so you don't have to squint so much to read. It's better to use that to surf the web and read things if you want to, rather than the iPod. Most people buy an iPad to replace their computer, it is cheaper than and entire new computer. But it's more expensive than the iPod touch. Some buy it just because they think it looks cool and because others have it, so they feel left out and they can brag later. When it first came out, I didn't see all the hype cuz it is just like a bigger iPod touch and all my friends who wanted on already had a iPod touch but apparently the iPad is better because it's a bigger picture. Eh, I'm still not crazy for it. I'd rather have a netbook or a laptop instead. I think the iPad looks cool and it's fun to mess around with it, but I don't think me who already has an iPod touch, close to 10 good laptops, 2 desktop computers, and an iPhone needs it. I can use that $500 for something else I could actually use :) btw, I wasn't bragging in any way when I listed those things, just sharing. Anyways, the main reason is so they can make money.

I guess it's useful for people who work at a job that involves a lot of presentations.....I'd like to know why there's an iPad 2. Only difference is that it's sleeker and faster and it comes in black and white. <---- so??

15% lighter 33% thiner over twice as fast and the screen as almost twice as many pixels, and now there is face time chat and you can instantly make movies, edit them and through them on YouTube

I think you should cash in some laptops and try out the iPad, think your going to love it
Report as
I've already played around with it before and my friend let me have hers for a few months (I didn't ask her for it....it's a long story). And yeah, it's ok. Not really something I'm dying for though, and I am myself a kind of tech junkie. I don't think you should pay that much for something that jus looks cool, it'll start to slow down on you after a while you know. Good things don't last forever. Do u have an iPad 2?

Ya I can understand that if you have a laptop and a smartphone, there's no purpose for it I guess, and it's not cheap, but I think you get what you pay for, I haven't used a computer since I got it, only to put music on it. iPad 2 isn't out yet in canada but I will when I get a chance

Ok. Cool
