Two separate consumer surveys came to the same conclusion: the iPad is on top of everyone's Christmas gift wish list. Fortunately, your chances of getting an iPad are pretty good -- as both of those studies also said that people plan to spend more on Christmas gifts this holiday season, mostly on consumer gadgets, compared to 2009.
The No. 1 desire? A tablet -- and that means the iPad for most people. So why not getting an iPad for Christmas this year? Here I've picked some of the most frequently asked questions on Yahoo! Answers about Apple iPad.
1.Should I get an iPad for Christmas or wait for iPad 2.0?
Since there has been no announcement so far, we think the answer would be no. It's too close to Christmas for an announcement yet to come. Apple releases new products during MacWorld or Apple Developer's Conference, both are around middle of the year. In all likelihood, the earliest that a new model will be released is April 2011. That means if you are willing to wait 5 months, the iPad 2.0 would be a better choice.
If you want to give someone an iPad as a gift this holiday season, you may want to consider buying it now as opposed to later.
Analysts are already moving their projections up for how many iPads Apple will sell this year, and writers are already saying that it will be this year’s “Tickle Me Elmo” (is any toy ever going to replace that thing as an example?), but is this on its way to being a self-fulfilling prophecy? It appears there is a large dose of reality attached to it.
Currently all iPad models are showing a shipping schedule of 7 to 10 days, and as we get closer to the holiday shopping season it is sure to get worse. While normal gift buying would cause those dates to slip some more, it seems that no one was quite ready for the demand Apple has seen on these devices.
2.Do you think the Apple iPad would be a good Christmas present for a teenager?
Definatley get the iPad as Christmas gift this year! According to a recent survey, Apple products from iPod, iPhone to iPad are the most popular gift choices for kids. Forget dolls and toys, the Duracell survey showed that two thirds of the children want electronic products for the holidays. Kids as young as 5 years old to adults all want one. The Apple bug is still plaguing the whole world so if you are in a financial crunch, you have to think twice as this is a massive investment. Well, the good thing is if your kids get tired of these products, you can just enjoy using their hand-me-downs.
3. Will there be a 7-inch FaceTime-capable iPad before Christmas?
Apple is readying another tablet similar to the iPad but with a 7-inch touchscreen for launch as early as the end of this year, according to a major Taiwanese newspaper.
According to a report by AppleInsider several months ago, sources with direct knowledge of Apple's product plans claim that production of a FaceTime-capable iPad could be available in time for the holiday shopping season.
However, Apple releases new products during MacWorld or Apple Developer's Conference, both are around middle of the year. In all likelihood, the earliest that a new model will be released is April 2011.
So all of those rumors about iPad 2.0. We’re pretty sure Steve Jobs just crushed them for the foreseeable future.
