How An iPad Fits In Perfectly

Back in 2010 when the iPad was about to be launched there were rumours floating around about it. Some were expecting a large touch screen device with a full fledged OSX running on it and others were expecting a blown out iPhone. Well, it was none.

Pundits and gurus predicted not much usage factor for iPad and were quite skeptical about it, but as usual Apple proved the potential of iPad (not tablet!). It changed the game altogether.
