And you thought the Blackberry Curve was big. In a society where the prevalent trend in technology is always to go smaller, Apple decides to separate from the herd and instead create the largest portable entertainment device to date. I hesitantly introduce to you the First Generation iPad.
Now I’m calling it the First Generation iPad because it will undoubtedly have predecessors in the near future that will be faster and smarter. That being said, it has barely been out a day and already is getting bad reviews--mainly that it is indeed too big. Exactly how is one supposed to carry this device around without being completely awkward and risk dropping and breaking it?
It is too soon to tell but I have a feeling that the First Generation iPad is simply another edition to a long line of products that were released before they were properly thought out. Better luck next time, Mr. Jobs.
