BBC Looking At iPad As Its Main PC; Others Can't Be Too Far Behind

BBC is looking to replace some laptops and even desktops for their staff. Okay, I’m big on the whole tablet concept but the amazingness of this is quite shocking.

Merely months on the market and its potential yet to be fully realized, the iPad has gone from what analysts thought to be a fad to fade quickly once fanboys get it in their hand has continue to grow. With more than 3 million sold in just three months, this is even before Apple has made it available in most of the countries.

Not only is the iPad invading traditional Windows territory, the iPad and iPhone is likely bring a long a lot of Macs as well.

Essentially, Apple’s ecosystem of providing seamless and enjoyable user experience along with easily accessible content and apps has paved a way for others into Appledom.

Why is BBC doing this? Portability. Ease of Use. And the 3G + WiFi provides instant access to data and communication. Bigger screen than mobile phones. All of this at an affordable price.

Personally, I’ve been running my mobile life on the iPad as well. E-mails, writings, gaming, and even VOIP when needed. I’ve got the 32GB WiFi-only model. And when I’m on the go, I can tether it to my jail-broken G1 or iPhone.
