The Apple iPad: a Must Have as a Third Device?

4 Apr

Martin Giles, US Tech Correspondent for The Economist, writes in today's online edition about how Apple is trying to persuade consumers that an iPad or tablet is a must have. In First Impressions of the iPad he says that he had "only had a few hours to play with the new device, but his initial impressions are that Apple’s gizmo will help to convince people everywhere that there is indeed a place for tablet computers in their future as a “third device” that sits between mobile phones and personal computers."

Giles interviewed me after I purchased my iPad at the Best Buy store on Harrison Street in San Francisco on April 3. Giles writes "several of the folk at that store with iPads under their arms seemed to be Apple aficionados already. Aimee Levine, a self-confessed “gadget girl” who already owns an iPhone and iPod music player, said one of the main reasons for buying an iPad was that she planned to take out electronic subscriptions to her favourite newspapers and magazines on it, and to do away with the printed ones."
