iPad frenzy 2
The 'new' iPad is out. Every tech journalist worth his/her salt has something to say on the new device. The Apple fanboys are understandably elated; they eagerly await their delivery of the new gadget.
I strongly think it's just a consumer device. Just like you own smartphones, you own a tablet. People stretch their imagination to invent their usefulness in various environments.
I hardly ever seen iPad in our company. No CEO demanded its inclusion in our trusted network. They do use their smartphones to access their mail and sms texts. Nobody wants to see a spreadsheet in their phones. Nobody edits documents in them.
Lame excuses have been given to add a keyboard to the tablet. I think it defeats the very purpose of having a tablet in the first place. Please remember we have both ipad classic and ASUS transformer with keyboard in our household. They are good for surfing web pages, seeing youtube videos and of course reading ebooks in ePub and PDF formats.
Every gadget has its place and usefulness. Don't stretch them to be everything for everybody. This is age of specialization, isn't it?
