Consumption DeviceJuly 24, 2010
After a few weeks of use I have come to realize that the iPad is best used as a device to consume media and online content. While there are some office suite applications out there none of them seem really polished and ready to use in a real hard core work environment. I imagine as time goes on these apps will get more streamlined and less buggy.
The other big issue behind my thoughts are that the lack of physical keyboard can make it more difficult to “create” content. I am writing this on my iPad but honestly it would be faster for me using some sort of physical keyboard.
Having said that it is an awesome media consumption device. More on this later…
