In five years, I think the Ipad, or tablets in general, are going to become devices that become every day items.

The laptop will become the new desktop. The smartphone will be ubitiquous. And the ipad/tablet pc will become the in-between device for travel/on-the go. This is not farfetched as in five years, prices will likely drop to the $200 range on the low end.

Here's to the future!


I agree. I brought my first PC in 1994 and I've had the internet since 1995 (well I had AOL back then...that counts, right?). I've also had a beeper, cell phone, Palm Pilot, iPod....basically whatever came out, you name it, I had it. There is greater emphasis on ease of use, portability and overall aesthetics when it comes to technology.

I have two laptops; but I do not constantly have them on. I find that if I need to check email...or a website quickly, I will reach for my iPad. I also have a smartphone (Droid)...but I have never been a fan of emailing and browsing the net from my phone. Unless I am in a really tight situation. That and you have to worry about phone calls and text messages interrupting you. No thank you...I would rather use my cell phone for phone calls and texting only!

I do agree that the iPad is in the beta/developmental stage still. Yes, it is currently an overgrown iPod Touch. But people need to use it before its real niche can be found. This happened through the evolution of the iPod. People use them when they work out; so the new versions of the iPod has a built in pedometer, stopwatch, and even a FM radio tuner. Hmmm...they also have a camera/video feature. Wow. I just thought of this now....my iPod nano can take pictures and video and my iPad can't! (?). Oh well.
