I am a blogger who wishes to maintain a consistent blogging work. I am entertainment lover too and would like to hear songs & play games at my spare time.

So, I’ve decided to buy an alternate gadget to carry out my events, but in a little confusion to choose the best device, Tablet or iPad?

Are you in the same confusion to select the best gadget like me? Hope this post would help you to choose the suitable device for your personal and professional purposes. I suggest you to look at the useful discussion of mine

Can Tablets replace Laptops?

As I discussed already the Tablet, let’s talk about the details of iPad and its features with my same style of beginning with a fundamental question.

What is iPad?

iPad is a mobile computer designed by Apple Inc. It is thin and lightweight gadget comes with a large touchscreen facility. It has the virtual keyboard, Bluetooth capability and camera.

But it does not contain Ethernet port like the laptop and it needs Wi-Fi or 3G enabled cell phone signal to connect to the internet. It is a magical and revolutionary device that can be used to perform the educational and entertainment activities.

Cons of iPad

• Expensive when compared to Tablet

• Flash support and SD card slot are missing.

• No drag & drop file management and it cannot be connected as a drive to the PC without iPad apps.


I hope that you are thorough with the iPad features now. The popularity of the Android platform from Google is increasing rapidly and challenges the market of iPad with its customizable options.

It confuses the consumers in choosing the quality device with the questions should I buy an iPad? Nexus 7? A Kindle Fire? And so on!

Tablet or iPad? Both the mobile computers are highly portable, touchscreen interface, easy to use and attractive electronic gadget. But searching the answer for the question “That is the better tablet?” is the toughest thing as every gadget has its pros and cons.

Even though the cost of the iPad is little high, it is a stable device and easy to use when compared to Android Tablets, I guess “iPad” is suitable for me to work.

What do you say after reading the details of “iPad features”? Which is your favorite gadget, iPad or Tablet? Do share your views and experience with me, so that it would help me to choose the best gadget.
