When the iPad launched in January 2010, it was the only device of its kind being sold. There are many prospective buyers of the iPad and they are wondering among themselves what they would use this device for and how to use it. There are many uses for this device and how you use it depends on what you want to do. iPads are versatile enough to use as gaming devices, reading eBooks, working on documents, email and much more.

Using the iPad is pretty intuitive. Many onboard applications are launched from icons on the touch screen and if you need information about many of the features, you can get it online. Entrepreneurs’ will find the device useful in doing business on the go. There are no moving parts or spinning hard drives, there is a button on the main screen and another at the top of the device to switch it off. Using this device does not replace your lap or desktop computer, but you may use your laptop less. I believe it simply allows you greater flexibility to perform many of your usual tasks, without being restricted to a desk. There is a wifi plus 3G version that will allow you to connect to the internet anywhere you can get a phone signal. For those laptop users that take their laptop to bed and work, the iPad takes up less room, you don’t need to plug it in and it generates much less heat than your laptop.

You will discover more ways to use the iPad, as you explore it to get familiar with all its features. Students will find the device an excellent replacement for their laptop and the battery life is great. The ability to navigate the internet and read documents makes it a great tool. Tech savvy users can access FTP servers and retrieve word documents if needed. Retirees will find the iPad an easy to use device that is portable and lightweight enough to make web surfing a simple pleasure. Being able to simply touch the screen to launch programs is better than using a mouse (in my opinion). Kindle owners will be able to download and keep all their Kindle purchases on the iPad. Banking institutions are embracing mobile banking which means you can do your banking and bill paying from your iPad. When you device in unattended, you can enable security settings to keep your data secure.

You can use your iPad for nearly the same things you would use your laptop for. There are plenty of available apps for access to the social networking sites.
