Do you Want to Own an iPad

If you are the kind of person who loves anything that has to do with technology, you may have been considering purchasing an iPad. They’ve been out on the market for a little while now but you decided you would wait to see how well the sold and if the prices would come down on them. If you are also someone who owns any Apple product, such as an iPhone or a MacBook, you know what great products they are, so this may be why you want to own an iPad. Before you purchase one, however, you may want to know what is so great about this device and what precisely it does. If this is true, here’s the inside scoop.

The Breakdown

An iPad is a tablet computer manufactured by Apple. This is the same company that makes the ever popular MacBook and the iPhone. If you have or have seen an iPhone or an iPod Touch, you have a general idea of what an iPad is already.  An iPad is nothing more than a glorified iPhone/iPod Touch. It’s just a bit larger and a bit more expensive. The iPad comes in two different models. One model will only connect to a Wi-Fi connection for you to use the internet while the other model will connect to a 3G cell phone connection or Wi-Fi. When you purchase the 3G model, you will have to purchase a 3G package for it through your cell phone provider and these can be pretty pricey! You’d probably be better off with just the Wi-Fi model unless you want to spend extra bucks for megabyte usage. An iPad won’t allow you to make phone calls like an iPhone would, but you will be able to text from it if you download a free texting app from the App Store. You will be able to surf the web using Safari as a browser and you will even be able to check your email. You can watch videos on YouTube and even use FaceTime to video chat with other friends who have iPads, iPhones or iPod Touches. You will be able to use PhotoBooth on your iPad to take pictures and post them on Facebook or Instagram. An iPad can also act as an e-reader and you can download books to read on it if you choose to.

Many uses

iPads are great things to own if you already like Apple products. They’re not too expensive and they do so many great things. If you were thinking about buying one, there are so many reasons why you would want to. You can use it for school or even just for pleasure. If you were thinking about getting an e-reader anyhow, why not get an iPad that does so much more? You’re seriously considering an iPad, so stop hesitating and go to your local Apple store today to check them out. You’ll only want one more once you do!
