The Verizon Google tablet could look like this
The recent release of Apple iPad will soon receive competition from Verizon and Google in their own version, which could be released sometime in early 2011. The tablet computer will be similar to iPad, and will operate from possibly the Android operating system or Chrome.
The tablet will most likely run on Verizon’s LTE 4G network, which replaces the current failing CDMA network. It is possible that Verizon will create a new rate plan that includes the tablet along with cell phones or other wireless products.
Verizon and Google have a strong and growing relationship, with the Android system currently running on several mobile handsets. But the wireless carrier is desperately trying to catch up to AT&T’s success with iPhone and iPad.
Currenly iPad is doing very well in sales, with over one million tablets per month going out. AT&T has exclusive rights to sell the new iPad 3G, which doesn’t appear to be changing anytime soon. What customers love about the new iPad is the easy to use touch screen capability along with the multi-task features that include web surfing, entertainment and reading. The new Verizon tablet will no doubt include these types of features along with any new ones Google may help create.
Lot of people are still wondering what exactly an Apple’s iPad is? The confusion stems from the fact that it looks very similar to a blown up iPhone and a miniature tablet PC. So what exactly is it and more importantly, is this beautifully designed touchscreen device the future of computers?. It would be more appropriate to place iPad in the latter category for a number of reasons. The reasons are as follows –
Now, what is the most common utility of computer for normal people? Commonly, they are used for communication, entertainment and networking. If we leave out professionals like graphic designers, engineers and software developers, most of us do not utilize even 50% of the computing power of our computing devices. So the question arises, why do we need those bulky desktop computers or laptops? If you want to communicate, play games or music, or connect with others, an iPad is fully efficient to do that. Moreover, applications that are developed for mobile devices are much more user friendly and efficient than their fully loaded websites.
What makes iPad more appealing is the fact that it is 3G enabled, which means simply insert a mobile sim card in it and use it as a cell phone. Even if you don’t have a wireless hot-spot in the immediate vicinity, your iPad is seamlessly connected to the internet. Unlimited data plans provided by GSM mobile service providers at down to earth prices make this device even more appealing. So do not be surprised if in near future you see sales of desktops and laptops plummeting. The future of computers has certainly arrived.
