The concept of tablet devices are not new. However, the iPad is the only one that has been successful so far. Its adoption rate has been speculated to be faster than that of the DVD player. Either way, 2010 has been the year of the iPad for Apple.
TIME magazine recognized the iPad’s success by naming it one of the Best 50 Inventions of 2010 in the technology category. Here’s what they had to say:
How does Apple keep out-inventing the rest of the tech industry? Often, it’s by reinventing a product category that its competitors have given up on. In theory, the iPad is merely a follow-up to such resoundingly unpopular slate-style computers as Microsoft’s Tablet PC. But Apple is the first company that designed finger-friendly hardware and software from scratch rather than stuffing a PC into a keyboardless case. When it calls the results “magical” and “revolutionary,” it’s distorting reality only slightly. One analyst says the iPad is the fastest-selling nonphone gizmo in consumer-electronics history.
Apple has a jump on the competition but that won’t last long. Once competitors announce their tablets, expect Apple to drop iPad 2.
