RIM will be deploying its new PlayBook next week; the iPad is dead!… Well… humphr… I may be a RIM die hard fan, I’m not that stupid ;-). But I actually think that the iPad is dead for another reason; I have a better idea!
The iPad is nothing but a cool toy
When I think about the iPad and other “Pads” of the world, I see nothing but a gadget. It’s a “cool” toy where you can play some games, have fun with applications and go on the internet. I see a true usage when you talk about video conferencing and reading books. However, the Pads have so many “fun” options that I don’t think it is really designed to work with. You can surely hang out but you can’t really work with an iPad and be productive (I’m losing enough time with my iPod Touch to realize how the iPad could become a time eater in my day!).
The iPad at Halloween
My idea came while seeing all the additional gadgets you can buy for your iPad. One of them is literally a suitcase to protect your iPad and provide access to a keyboard. When I saw that, I just saw an iPad disguised as a laptop… so what’s the point?
Why the iPad is soo cool
The iPad is soo cool because it has an amazing touch screen. This offers you a world of opportunities that we haven’t been able to explore yet. Wow… you can interact with a screen by the tip of your finger. How cool is that?
This is what makes the good ol’ laptop so old fashioned (I’m typing this post while I am at the pool for William’s swimming classes and while most people are staring at me because I type like a demon with my semi-broken laptop… while they are playing with their iPads and iTouches 😉 ).
So what is the solution to make the laptop cool again?
So here’s my idea: why don’t we take a laptop and integrate a touch screen on the surface? When opened, the tool would act as a regular laptop. When closed, the user would have access to a touch screen with the very same function as the iPad. This would make it the perfect device according to me.
It would combine the work utility and the power of a computer combined with the multimedia and screen enhancement of a touch pad. It just sounds like the perfect device to control your whole geek world ;-).
The fact of adding a double face touch screen on a laptop would enable you to play, work and manage all your application from a single device. For those who like the small size of the iPad, we can surely do it with small notebooks as well ;-). If Apple can design a MacBook almost as thin as a sheet of paper, I’m sure they can incorporate 2 screens on a laptop! I could call it the iTop? Or the iMacBook?… but I hope RIM gets the idea first and call it the BlackBook 😛
I wonder if my idea is good or not, what do you think? Would you buy a BlackBook?
