Ever since Apple has announced the much hyped and anticipated iPad, everyone is trying to figure out what can the iPad be used as. For a change, even Apple fanboys don’t seem too impressed and Apple seems to have fallen short of expectations. Instead of making a smaller netbook, has Apple created a larger iPhone? Or possibly a larger iPod touch. We try to find out the best possible use of the Apple iPad.

Well, the iPad can be used as a Digital Photo Frame. It can do that just right! But $500 for a Digital Photo Frame? Apple, can we have the next device please?

Thanks a cool peice of work! I always thought it will be fun for Surfing on it.. By the way, I like your writing style.
give up dude. it would be good to hear an equal article with positive and negative aspects. the ipad is an excellent device – the only concern i hav is how to carry it around and if it justifies the price tag.
Brilliant piece of work man 😀 Haha!
Thanks CJ 🙂
First generation of ipad..we can only expect improvement. The next ipad would be expected to have an in-built camera, new ports can be included. Safari will be popular in ipads and many more.
I dont have an ipad…I am patiently waiting for the next generation of ipads. Much like what I did for the iphone lol does anyone still think iphone 2G still exist?

I can sit here all day long and point out negatives about everything and everyone. I do not think I would trust your opinions with M & A or Telcom for that matter after reading the senseless gibberish you write about. A year and a half after this article was written, Apple is still leaving the competition so far behind that there is not much of a chance for anyone to catch up. I think you need to brush up on your industry a little bit before you hold yourself out as an expert.
