Hi, I'm new here! I've been visiting this forum and now I want to share with you my thoughts about Apple's iPad. I believe iPad is significantly changing the whole hi-tech market, or at least it is raising awareness about a new approach never exploited before. In my opinion iPad's success comes from the understanding of the users community. It is the users who are actually making the iPad an essential device. It is the content that is making it a great thing to have. And I see in this an interesting trend: manufacturer no more producing gadgets or devices, but platforms for users generated content. This is a new trend, or at least it is with the iPad that we can see a revolution coming in. IPad did not offer anything new, if you think about it. Everything that is melted in the device was actually offered already by other items. What it is truly offering is a platform, where all the possibilities and all the most useful applications for work and entertainment are offered at once.
