The iPad is a mobile Internet device that focuses on multimedia and dabbles in productivity. It’s a supersized iPod touch with enhanced capabilities
Laptop magazine doesn’t quite understand the iPad. A big iPod touch? Gee, I haven’t heard that before. Dabbles in productivity? Oh I forgot, “productivity” is from the Latin, meaning Microsoft Office.
It’s rather pathetic how the authors had to grovel at the feet of the generic netbook device, netbook manufacturers, and Microsoft in order to have “netbooks” beat a device they’ve never used in only five of 10 categories (the iPad won three; two were draws).
I have to wonder if, given how the deck was stacked against it, three wins and a couple draws is actually an iPad victory at this stage of the game. I mean, it cleared five categories without even showing up. Impressive performance, but don’t try telling Laptop Magazine that.
