As many know, yesterday began selling the iPhone in our country. Once again Apple has managed to mobilize hundreds of people, including several celebrities, to the dealers to the big evening sale of the new iPhone.
Unofficially it is said that the new iPhone has sold more units than its predecessor, which leaves us all with a question: What’s behind your success? Could it be for his new pair of cameras, dual-core processor or thousands of applications available? I think not and here show what I think is the secret behind the success of iPhone 2, and in general, most Apple products.
iPhone 4 Construction Quality
If there is something that Apple has carved out a reputation is built on the quality of their equipment. There have been many cases of Macs that resist drops many feet or, more recently, the iPhone 4 who survived a fall of 300 meters.
Lately though the build quality of Apple hardware has fallen (iMacs with defective GPU, the AntennaGate sounded, and something more personal, my MacBook has gone for repair twice in his birthday), the Apple brand has been linked to most of the population as a trusted, whose products are not usually cause problems.
Thus, the iPad inherits the reputation of Apple and one to buy a iPhone can be sure that you have the “Apple quality” and therefore unlikely to be a defective product.
Ease of use
Another factor influencing the success of Apple products is their ease of use. As an example I put the iconic “click wheel” of iPods: the most confusing controls music players used to play music, Apple came up with this new concept which, among other factors, drove sales of the iPod into the player musical excellence.
Having learned a product Apple sells more user friendly than one with a thousand functions cumbersome, in 2007 introduced the iPhone with iPhone OS (now IOS), which became a hit for the same reason that the iPod: while most other smartphones using Windows Mobile and Palm OS operating systems that were very full but nothing intuitive, Apple introduced a different concept which sacrificed so customization terminal to make it easy to use, that captivated thousands of people and introduced them to world of smartphones.
History repeated itself in 2010 with the presentation of the iPad. Although he could have provided Apple Mac OS X as many expected, but the Cupertino company ultimately decided by IOS. The reason is simple: there TabletPCs and had spent years in the market but had failed mainly because an operating system designed for conventional computers, which made them slow and difficult to use. In contrast, Apple’s tablet IOS promised to be fast, lightweight, with very good battery life and, especially, easy to use. Its ease of use made them become the best selling tablet so far and redefine the market for tablets. Now instead of using a conventional operating system like Windows or Linux, tablets manufacturers are opting for mobile operating systems like Android, webOS or Meego.
If there is something you can praise of Apple is its fantastic marketing team, thanks to which has created several gems of marketing. Apple commercials are made so that all the good teams are highlighted, in a way that seems “perfect” their equipment.
And not only is the advertising itself. Another thing Apple has done well to position their products in the media. Simply turn on the TV and watch a movie or American series to see the work that Apple has made entering the means: there are few movies / series where there is an Apple device, be it iPhone, Mac, iPhone or iPod.
Like on TV, Apple is very much on the Internet. Many sites are dedicated to reporting exclusively on Apple, and many more are also those who speak of the company but not exclusively. Also, Apple has a strong presence in social networks. As a result, many Internet users that are unfamiliar to most of the technology they learn the new releases from Apple as well as many other news that revolve around the company. This leads consequently to the last and most important point which I believe Apple products become successful.
Apple is ‘cool’ and AWESOME!
This is because most celebrities do not know whether or not sponsored by Apple using Apple products. And as the celebrity uses, many of their fans will too. This feeling of being ‘cool’ is what makes the iPhone 3G and even 3G still sold quite well having the hottest smartphone market at lower prices. History repeats itself with the iPhone 2: although there are and will better alternatives for the simple fact of having an apple in his back the will be more likely to be a “best-seller” than other tablets.
Thanks to these four factors, I feel that the iPhone and the iPad 3, 5 and iPhone, and the next iDispositivo be big hits. If anything Apple has taught us is that the success of a product is not in their presentations, but how to sell it. There is no point making a super tablet with lots of RAM, a processor and a thousand antics grand more if you do not know how to sell and attract consumers.
Apple has already thought of this, and its arsenal of accessories for your iPhone and iPad tablet laptop accessories can turn these into real computers. The most obvious starting point is an adapter and an integrated keyboard (69 dollars). The back of the adapter has a standard connection charge Apple and connection of accessories, as well as an audio port and stereo speakers.
But there are other alternatives. IPad a small dock, for $ 29, can be used to establish a radio link with a Bluetooth wireless keyboard-Apple (69 dollars) oo-party. This offers some benefits over the first “rigid” solution: first, lets you use a Bluetooth keyboard that already has at home and, second, if you buy a new keyboard now, you can use later with other accessories. It only remains to see if the sleek new iPad 2 and other accessories that will continue to be adjusted even first-generation adapter.
Bluetooth technology is the key to writing on the screen of a smartphone or tablet with a keyboard. Bluetooth keyboards there are a wide range of variants. The range between 40 and $ 60 range like Kensington, Sharon, snugg and others, with the typical dial the iPad and an integrated keyboard.
With these additions, however, the user has to accept that their slim tablet will become a kind of bulky mini-laptop. Other manufacturers offer their own versions of a dock iPad, including ZAGG, ZAGGmate your Bluetooth keyboard, which also functions as a “cover” for the touch screen (around $ 85).
There are other universal Bluetooth keyboard in various price ranges. On one side it has the classic keyboards, relatively bulky, between 30 and 100 dollars, depending on the manufacturer and the resources they offer. Special versions for portable use, such as made of silicone flexible keyboards are offered by Ricco (17 dollars) or CHIN FAI (30 dollars).
Keyboards i-Connex, however, are made of hard plastic but can be folded in half like a book (75 dollars). An appeal is initiated only for flexible keyboard SU-8W Nokia Bluetooth, although the model has been withdrawn from circulation by the Finnish manufacturer and can only be purchased through eBay. Another option is the mini-keyboards from manufacturers such as Hebron, which can hold in one hand while typing with the other (35 dollars).
But Apple smartphones and tablets are not the only ones able to work with these solutions. There are interesting ideas made by other manufacturers. Asus, for example, provides an inspiration with their Eee Intelligent Transformer Pad. The adapter itself is also a backup battery for extending the working time.
Chinese manufacturer Lenovo has announced for this summer’s launch of its LePad, which is actually two computers in one. As a single tablet, the device works with the Google Android operating system. But, when connected to the keyboard, it becomes a computer running Microsoft Windows 7.
The advantage of this solution is that the LePad can be used as a full PC, including a mouse, while the Android operating system IOS nor Apple provides this solution. But LePad may end up being an expensive toy: Current estimates calculate that the combination tablet and IdeaPad U1 base station can cost about $ 1,000, even in China.
Viewsonic, brand known for its displays, is proving a cheaper alternative. Your ViewPad 10 works with both Windows and Android, and will soon Avaliab for about $ 500, but no keyboard or adapter. Another unusual difference: while most of its competitors work with multi-core chips based on the architecture promoted by the British manufacturer of ARM chips, on the ViewPad is built around an Intel Atom processor.
In the U.S., Motorola has attracted attention with his concept Atrix, a laptop in which all the work makes it a smartphone Atrix connected to a port on the back of the unit. Laptop only costs about 360 U.S. dollars. With dozens of tablets based on the Android operating system announced for this year, the options begin to appear in the next few months.

Is it necessary for children to use the iPad 2? Superintendent Tom Morrill said yes and said: “What we’re seeing is that this is an essential tool, even more important than a book. It is a learning tool that need. I’m sure some traditional educators are offended by the comment about the books, but there are definitely good reasons for children to use technology as soon as possible. With the IPAD 2, children can learn the letters of the books you can read, write your name with your fingers, it is absolutely something we should do. “
It is obvious that a child will love learning to read and write more with an IPAD with a book. If this new educational system is in favor of their learning is good, but beware that this preference for the iPad feed 2 no bad habits.
