The iPad is taking a swipe at two markets... The e-readers and the Netbooks. It's going to take more from the e-readers, but probably a fair chunk of the netbooks two. Also, i see one other market. Kids. I remember when my family had a mac back in the early 90's before we switched to XP. I was maybe 6 or 7 at the time. My father and mother used the computer for everything you'd use a computer for, but as a kid, my father didn't want me using the computer with full access. What if i deleted something important? So my father had a user account for me to use whenever i wanted to use the computer. It was a single screen with different icons for applications, mostly the games i liked to play (sound familiar?). That user system was sort of like training wheels for the whole computer. I think the iPad will be a good product for parents who want to get there kids something they can check their email on or play a game or two, and have music/movies to listen to/look at... without taking up time on the home computer. The interface for the iPad is very similar to the interface i used for my computer years ago. A simple, limited OS for using different applications one at a time. So now a busy working parent who wants to get work done but his kids are on their computer all the time can pick up an iPad for the kids so they don't fight over the computer. Those are my thoughts on what the tablet can do for us. What do you think?
