Mobile and Wireless: iPad 3: 10 Design Ideas Apple Should Borrow

By Don Reisinger  |  Posted 2012-02-10 Print this article Print


If there is anything Apple should borrow from the Galaxy Tab 10.1, it's the device's 4G connectivity. The iPad is designed to be a mobile device that will allow customers to connect to the Web wherever they are. Why not provide them with the very best option to do that-4G?
There's no debating Apple knows how to build great products. The company's iPhone and iPad are standouts in their respective markets, and competitors might try as hard as they can to match the Cupertino, Calif.-based firm, but never come close. For the foreseeable future, Apple will stand atop the mobile market and prove-as it has over the last several years-why it's the very best at what it does. But that doesn't mean that the company doesn't need to do some things to make its next iPad better. In March, Apple is expected to show off the iPad 3 that, some analysts say, will be a major update over the tablet the company launched last year. There's no telling if that will happen, of course, due to Apple's unwillingness to divulge product details before launch, but given the company's history, there's a good chance it'll offer up something new that consumers will want to buy. The only question now is, what should the iPad 3 come with? Believe it or not, Apple won't need to make that decision on its own. The company can look around the mobile market right now and find a host of features that it should borrow from some of its own products, as well as those from other companies.
