Ipad Book Reader
So really, is there any function the iPad can’t be good at? Let’s take a look at the iPad ebook reader and see how it passes muster. One of the many anticipated uses of the iPad has been as an e-book reader. Comparing a multi-function LCD computer to a purpose built E Ink reader is, well, Apples to Oranges. First among the iPad’s advantages is it’s multi-function abilities. Apple launched the iPad and at the same time premiered their own online bookstore.
At just 0.5-inch thick, the iPad is surprisingly (and definitely not an unwelcome surprise) thin. The iPad’s 9.7-inch colored IPS touch display is a major factor to the tablet’s success. If you’re browsing through a copy of Better Homes and Gardens for instance, or reading a picture book to your 5-year old, then the iPad ebook reader fits the bill to a T.
Apple says that the iPad could go as long as 10 hours on a single battery charge with continued use. That’s understandable and still pretty impressive considering that the iPad can do a lot of things.
All one needs to do is go to the App Store and download the iPad optimized versions of the Amazon Kindle and Barnes and Noble Nook apps. These apps will allow users to access their purchases right on the iPad. The base 16GB iPad with WiFi only costs $499, and the price ranges all the way up to $829 for a 64GB model with 3G and WiFi.
That end-user would see the value in the iPad as an e-book reader to eliminate the need to buy a dedicated reader. The price is of course a factor in any purchase and since the iPad costs so many dollars more than a dedicated ebook reader like the Amazon Kindle, it’s best to assess your needs and budget first before making your decision.
