What is the difference and new features of the iPad compared to an iTouch/iPhone?

Asked by Steve_A (5125points) April 20th, 2010

Granted I only have the iTouch which I bought some time ago now, never used the iPhone because after they told me I had to sign a 2 year contract for one I went “bump that!” I said.

Anyways the iPad is out and about, but correct if I am wrong here is the iPad just a bigger screen/size version of iTouch/iPhone?

What is the difference?

With a bigger screen comes wider possibilities for application development.

Even the built-in Mail app on the iPad seems to be a lot more compelling of an email experience than Mail on the iPhone.

Bigger is better, someone once said. And here it’s definitely true. The iPad’s large screen is so inviting for developers. The Touch & iPhone showed the possibilities for mobile apps. The iPad is what will make them suitable for everyone.

• Copy/paste is easier and more advanced.
• You can tap-select multiple objects and arrange them, like in Keynote.
• You can use Keynote, Pages and Numbers, which are not available for the iPod Touch.
• You can buy books through iBooks
•The 3G model will connect you almost anyware, with no contract necessary. $15 gets you a month whenever you need it.
