It’s pretty fair to say that Apple’s iPad changed the way we think about portable computing and mobile internet, defying the naysayers to not only sell in mind-boggling numbers but also spawn a whole culture of developers, hackers and fans. It may have been called the love-child of a laptop and a Smartphone – and that wasn’t the worst it got called, either – but the iPad and its successor the iPad 2 are now firmly part of our everyday culture and technology. However, one of the iPad 2′s main draw cards – mobile broadband via the 3G network which powers your smart phones – has been the subject of some debate, especially after many early adopters found themselves slapped with massive data-roaming fees after travelling overseas. It certainly has many uses, but should you get iPad 2 broadband?
What the iPad 2 can do
The iPad 2 is famous for being very, very flexible. The number of apps available for the device is clearly testament to that: Apple’s promotional campaigns aside, the iPad has found a home in many unexpected places, from hospitals to concert halls (look up the Lang Lang’s performance of -Flight of the Bumblebee- on an iPad if you’re not sure what we mean). Many of these functions, of course, don’t require mobile broadband access through your iPad 2 – they’re usually based in apps which can function perfectly well offline. And don’t forget that all iPad 2 models have built-in WiFi, so you will have access to the internet regardless. Rather, it’s a question of coverage: do you really need to have always-on Internet access wherever you go??
Why you might want iPad 2 broadband
Although most smart phones nowadays have mobile internet access via 3G, it can be hard to use such a small screen to browse the internet or access rich-media content. The iPad 2′s larger screen and faster processor make for a smoother, more enjoyable Internet experience. And while a Smartphone may be fine if you’re just checking your mail, the iPad 2 affords you a whole lot more flexibility in what web content you access. It’s especially handy for checking the news, with many newspapers now offering iPad app versions of their online news – many of which contain exclusive content or more streamlined interactivity.
