Apple is often considered one of the most innovative technology companies in the world today not because they are exclusively the first or the only ones to invent a product but because they are the most tenacious about reinventing a product so that everyone will love it.
If you look at the iPad you can see that it learned from other computer tablets and that more recent versions also learned from the iTouch.
Apple Inc. started work on the iPad on April 23rd, 2008. The first iPad came out on April 3, 2010 (although Apple took pre-orders before then), iPad 2 came out in March 2011, and the most recent version of the iPad 3 came out on March 16th, 2012.
It took almost two years for the first design to come out because the designers wanted to make sure that all the apps would work well with this new system. What makes the iPads great are that they are so easy to read and so easy to use.
The new iPad features an improved retina display with four times the pixels of iPad 2 and quad-core graphics, a camera, an improved sharper image, anti-glare screens and more. The iPad is considered the best selling non-phone technical gadget of all time.
The iPad was a great invention because it brought the functions that people needed most, watching movies, drawing ideas and designs, reading books, into a format that was easily portable.
While tablets had been tried before, it was the great innovative design of the iPad that made it such a hit. Steve Jobs is known for his groundbreaking innovative ideas, cutting-edge designs, and staying ahead of the curve. Jobs said that the iPad may be his greatest invention and the project he is most proud of.
