What is it?

The Apple iPad combines the functionality of a notebook computer and a mobile phone.

How does it work?

The iPad is essentially an ultra-thin computer with a touch sensitive screen and no physical keyboard. It connects to wireless networks and can run thousands of different applications, including office software and games. Data is entered using a virtual keyboard that appears on the touchscreen.

Why are iPads useful?

The large screen means iPads can display much more information than a smartphone, but are thinner and lighter than a notebook computer.
