Ipad 3g Sales
It’s estimated that from the millions of iPad 2 tablets that were sold, 60 percent of them are 3G-enabled devices. Apparently people are interested in being able to benefit from Internet browsing even in areas that lack Wi-Fi connectivity. If you are planning to soon buy an iPad but if you have no idea if you should choose the 3G version or not, you should take a look at some reasons that will help you understand the high iPad 3G sales.
A first reason why so many interested customers settled for the 3G version is because connecting the phone to a mobile hotspot usually drains battery life. That means even if you can tether the 3G or 4G connection of your phone in order to browse the Internet on your tablet in a remote area, you will still feel limited. This time by battery life. So, if you are interested in using your iPad for making calls or sending text messages you should definitely buy the 3G version that can offer 10 hours of use and doesn’t require the presence of a 3G or 4G-enabled smartphone.
If the 3G capability is integrated in your iPad you will also save time using it. That’s because connecting to a hotspot takes time. It involves going through a number of steps and deciding which one of the networks available is most reliable. If 3G is in-built you simply need to make sure it’s turned on and the area you are visiting is covered by your carrier. The procedure is not only faster, but is also free of additional costs. Usually, when you connect to the Wi-Fi hotspot of a hotel or an airport you are required to pay an additional fee.
Another reason why the iPad 3G is so popular is because it comes with a large antenna. That means antenna signal strength will be strong in almost any place you visit. It’s enough to notice the display of 4 or 5 signal strength bars in order to know that you will enjoy an excellent iPad web browsing experience, unaffected by delays. Not to mention that you will benefit from the advantages of a GPS receiver that paired with the right app (Google Maps or Navigon) can deliver accurate GPS navigation on a large display. The Wi-Fi version lacks this feature.
Last but not least, the cost of integrated 3G can prove to be cheaper. US carriers make available competitive deals. You just need to think about your priorities and determine if you are going to rely on the tablet when travelling or just around the office and at home where wireless networks are available all the time and free of charge.
