Is the IPad just a over size IPod Touch?
Here are the pros and cons
Benefits of IPod Touch
•There is no email client on the iPod Touch
•There is no Maps application on the iPod Touch
•There are no Stocks or Weather widgets on the iPod Touch
•There is no built-in camera for the iPod Touch
•There are no Blutooth capabilities for the iPod Touch
•The iPod Touch has a differently styled “Dock,” with a reflective surface — akin to the Dock that will debut with Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard)
•While the iPod Touch is sleeping, the user can tap the home button twice to bring up touch controls on the screen — a feature the iPhone currently lacks
•The iPod Touch has a separate Contacts app — it’s built into the Phone application on the iPhone
•The iPod Touch has separate Video and Music apps, whereas the iPhone has a single “iPod” app that contains these functions
•There is apparently (and obviously) no microphone on the iPod Touch, though it will be interesting to see if such audio-in capabilities could be enabled via a third-party device.
•The iPod touch’s headphone jack is on the bottom of the device
•The iPod touch lacks a built-in external speaker
Benefits of the Iphone
Has everything the Itouch is lacking.
Benefits of IPAD
In short the IPad combines the options of a smart phone and Ipod Touch, however it does a have a 9 inch screen, but it does lack a camera and does not have allow for USB drive options.
The pricing comes in two variations. There is a Wi-Fi version and then Wi-Fi with 3G. If you want the entry level Wi-Fi model, that’s going to start at $499 and go up to $699. If you want a Wi-Fi and 3G version, that’s going to start at $629 and go all the way up to $829.
