I can understand the success of iPhone. First, it’s a phone. It can be used somewhat like a computer, and it’s cute. It’s an expensive assessory which can be showed off by men as a Rolex watch or women as a Hermes handbag.
iPad is released over the weekend. Some say it’s a bigger version of iPhone, but it’s not a phone. It’s a computer, which is also cute, but a cute computer. When we buy computers, we should think more about features, functionalities and expandabilities. I don’t think iPhone’s success which is based on cuteness, dumb proof functions, and pre-selected features can be duplicated in iPad.
I like the following comparison between iPad and other similar products which are or will be out there in the market.
