The iPad: What It Means for Movies

Jan. 27, 2010by: Mike Sampson

Today in San Francisco, Apple unveiled their highly hyped and long-rumored tablet titled the iPad. It's about as boring a name as I could possibly think of but, hey, the proof is in the pudding, right? The iPad itself is 0.5-inches thin and weighs 1.5 lbs with a 9.7-inch display. It will be offered in 16GB, 32GB or 64GB models and Apple claims it can get 10 hours of battery life (good luck replicating that in the real world). Steve Jobs described it as, "More intimate than a laptop, and...more capable than a smartphone." But what does it mean for watching movies on the go?

When first announcing the tablet, Jobs didn't even mention movies specifically. His first mentions were browsing the web and reading newspapers. He went on to talk about listening to music, viewing maps and sending e-mail. But what about watching movies, TV and video?

Jobs eventually pulled showed some YouTube style videos before segueing into iTunes. The primary usage they seem to be touting the iPad for is reading. When Jobs first sat down to show attendees what you can do, the first thing he did was pull up the New York Times. He did eventually mention going to Fandango to buy tickets for a movie but that's something you can do with relative ease with an iPhone. In fact what we've seen just make this look like a bigger and faster version of the iPhone, which should make for great movie or TV viewing.

According to those at the event, the iPad is more 4:3 than 16:9, which leaves watching a widescreen movie on the iPad a little "awkward." (Jobs picked UP as an example of watching a movie on the device.)

For those that have all kinds of movie-related apps (or games) purchased through iTunes, don't worry because "virtually every one" of the apps will be usable with the iPad. There are a number of accessories that are available that can prop the iPad up to make it a little easier to watch a movie, say on a plane.

But what you really want to know about is pricing. Here's a handy spreadsheet that breaks it down for you.

In addition, you're likely going to want to be able to connect to the web with this thing. While it does have WiFi, you can also purchase 250MB of monthly data from AT&T for $14.99 or unlimited for $29.99 (and for your troubles, AT&T will throw in free use of their AT&T WiFi hotspots).

So really the iPad is designed more for reading and to take on the Kindle than as a kind of mobile movie device. And frankly, I think Apple's missing out on something here. True, people can already watch movies on their laptops and iPhones, but honestly, we can do pretty much everything the iPad is offering already on both of those devices. But with a bigger screen and a much lighter device, why wouldn't we want to carry this around and watch a movie on the train, plane or, hell, the bathroom?

I suppose there's not much to add to the iTunes movie experience. You can already download movies in HD and this is just another way to watch them. But marketing this device to movie buffs as well as readers of digital content would seem to have been a better strategy. If you're downloading movies on the go, you'd most certainly have to go for the unlimited data plan and if you've already got an iPhone, this is starting to be a pretty expensive proposition.

So for the price involved, do you think this is something you'd pick up? Is it something you'd want to watch movies on on a consistent basis?

I have always wanted a mac and at the moment i am in sixth form (I will be getting a MacBook for uni, but at the moment I need a computer). My parents want to replace their computer with a cheap pc after buying a relativly good dell (£700 on sale) I preposed that I no longer used it for much and use my iPod touch mainly for Internet. They have agreed to do a swap where I get a Ipad and my parents get to use my pc. I tried getting a mac when I bought my pc but my parents wouldn't let me buy one

I tried getting a mac when I bought my pc but my parents wouldn't let me buy one as they thought that macs where too expensive for the specs. The price of the Ipad means they will let me get one. I mainly browse the Internet and will need to write the ocassional essay (my only essay subject is economics which I am dropping at the end of the year). I have a decent cameara and a fair amount of movies and music. Will the iPad satisfy my needs?
Also does the iPad have flash player? Can I edit videos and photos? How indepent of the need for a main computer is the Ipad?
Thanks for all your helpif anybody want to know more about it so plz visit this link:-

Is the ad I saw on Facebook about testing the iPad legitimate?
I saw some Facebook ad about they need iPad testers, then what they said after you test the iPad, you keep the new iPad. But the iPad's on sale date is on March, April or what date Apple would mention it in the future. Is there such thing as this?

Device looks cool as hell. But personally, I think I'd rather put the cash towards an actual Mac PC.

If you're on the fence about this, it pretty much comes down to; are you willing to pay that money for an iPod Touch with a much bigger screen but sacrifice the ability to carry it in your pocket? So I guess it depends on how much you sit at your home with your iPod Touch. Or maybe you're just dying for a Kindle...then this would be great for you.

ireally can relate to all the people that were disappointed with the device presented yesterday to us by Apple, sure, itīs basically just a BIG iPod Touch, but still, you get to work with iWork, wich put it up a notch above the iPod, and that 10" screen, is just awesomeness altogether to my eyes, i can see myself burning that battery down hard watching movies on the fly everywhere i go, so yes, i believe iīd buy one :)

I think we are better off with other tablet laptop like HP or Lenevo or any other brand that makes tablet laptop. Sure it maybe heavier and less sleek-looking than iPad but they have USB and sockets for other devices and larger harddisk space. Because I don't see any socket on iPad. Personally I think that iPad won't be that hot item Apple would like it to be.

The iPad for the iTime of the month...

This will sell better than any other touchpad from any other company purely because Apple knows how to market their generally mediocre products to people who desperately want to be perceived as alternative. Ironic I guess.

If you want to see an actual innovative tablet

Do a Google search for the Lenovo ideapad u1 hybrid.

THAT'S the tablet that Jobs should be selling his purloined liver to get the construction plans for.

They didn't market it as a premium movie experience because it isn't a premium experience. It's only a 9" screen with a 4:3 ratio. So that makes the actual viewing area around 7". Can you watch movies on it? Sure. While it may be convenient, it isn't that strong or exciting of a selling point.

This is a waste of money and time. And 85% of the people who buy will no idea how to use it. It'll definately mean job security for Apple Customer Service though.

Why is this even posted on this site?

It is a big ugly ipod! What is it doing on a movie site. And yes, I read the article, but it still has no right being on a movie site. Maybe as a banner ad, which I am sure it will be. C'mon, we can watch movies on a billion different devices, this will do nothing for movies, except for the Apple heads who are dumb enough to pay for it.

Watching movies on this = Lame

Honestly, it's cool to be able to view clips, and sure, have the option of viewing a movie casually on a plane, train, car, etc... but like you said, we have devices to do that already so pitching it that way isn't really appealling to me. Personally, I don't think any movie should be watched on a portable device, What will be nice on the other hand is when something like this as a full and proper OS running... half the Mac Air if you will. THAT, will be interesting indeed. Until then, I'm

No textbooks

"As a student . . .

Yes, that would be great, except apple isn't supporting textbooks right now. The textbook publishers would -love- this. They would still get to charge full price AND there would be less used books to resell, and you can't transfer, or sell your college algebra i/ebook either.

I can't believe that you movie geeks (movie geeks should get this) aren't seeing this. This is a game changer, it's the future, it's the tricorder in infancy. How many movies have you seen with a "pad" in it and said "I'm getting that the first day it comes out." This is the first day. The future begins.

I won't be getting one, but I can see the appeal. Looks pretty enough, has some neat features I guess. I'm sure it will be successful, despite it not having multi-tasking or a camera. Personally, between my laptop, netbook, iPhone and Kindle, I have too many gadgets as it is. And as far as movies are concerned, I would never watch a movie on a tiny little iPad screen. I bought a 52" Aquos for a reason.

It depends what your area of study is. I feel that, for most majors, e-textbooks are horrible. With reference books and text books being able to skip between page 10, 50, the index, the glossary, and the answer key is invaluable. You can't do that with an e-book.

Originality?

Ok, I don't mean to put you down because I'm a friendly guy. But I don't understand your thoughts on "Typical Apple they havent had an original idea in years." First off The original iPod was their big break that changed the way people listen to music in late 2001. It was released at a price of $400. Just a little over 6 years later they released the first iPhone which changed the way people surfed the web, talked on phones AND listened to music at the same price of $400. Now just 3 years

Just a little over 6 years later they released the first iPhone which changed the way people surfed the web, talked on phones AND listened to music at the same price of $400. Now just 3 years later they're releasing a new way to view photos, movies (yes movies I checked), music, books, internet and eventually, if but oddly, talk on the phone at just $100 more than the Original iPod price. Remeber that thing?! That guy could hold up to 1000 songs! Man that's a lot of storage. If only the iPad could hold that much. So please tell me. What other company were you thinking that had a more original idea that impacted the world so heavily? Please share, instead of just spouting your hate of not being able to copyright the idea and make it first.

Anywho... I won't get this because I already have a laptop and an iPod.

The original ipod was an improvement over other mp3 players at the time. The iphone is just an alternative to a blackberry or other smart phone. Now this is just an alternative to other tablet pc's.

Another example of Apple's "Originality"

Typical Apple they havent had an original idea in years. Watch next year they are going to have the same products and put a stripe down the back of it. "Its a Speed Stripe folks it makes it go faster, only a $150 more get it today." iPad = Fail
