It’s the news that’s making the headlines today, the fact that Apple and Adobe are at loggerheads and that this is the reason why the latest product from the Apple stable does not support Flash, that magic button that supports video and other animated content on your computers. But even though the iPad is priced at a premium, even though it is basically a bigger version of your iPhone, and even though you don’t really need it, here are a few reasons to go out and treat yourself to this new delight from Apple:
- It’s big: So what if it’s just a bigger version of the iPhone and your iPod? The bottom line is that it’s big. A screen of nearly 10 inches is nothing to sneeze at, and let’s face it – size does matter even though we say it doesn’t. With the flashy screen (pun unintended) and the large viewing platform, the iPad is pretty impressive once you get your hands on it and start using it. It’s like a big touchscreen tablet that is extremely responsive and easy to use, so why complain about the size?
- It makes a statement: It’s the new fashion statement, so if you own an iPad, you can safely say that you’re counted among those who own status symbols. Admit it, you’re definitely going to feel good when you pull out your iPad and feel all those admiring glances coming at you from every direction. And best of all, it’s new and the in thing to own right now.
- It’s loaded with features: The iPad is not just a pretty thing with a great outer shell; it’s inside is loaded with bells and whistles too. It’s feature-rich – you not only get to browse the Internet on the large screen, you can also read your books in color and on a larger platform, you can play games in a fabulous environment, and download a host of new apps that promise to make life more interesting and convenient.
- It’s Apple: And finally, (and the most compelling reason to buy an iPad), it’s an Apple product. Now they may be expensive, but you have to admit that when it comes to quality, they’re the best. Also, with the pricing fixed the way it is, not many people are going to make a beeline to own one, so you could just be one of the few exclusive people who can lay claim to your very own iPad.
And if these are not compelling reasons to buy an iPad, well, buy one just because you want to!
