iPad and the Third World
The iPad can still be utilized in a third World country. Here’s how….
I am an iPad owner in Bangladesh. Bangladesh is one of the poorest nation on the face of the Earth right after Rwanda & Nigeria.When Steve Jobs envisioned the iPad of course he had no Banglades like countriesh in mind. I say that because Bangladesh as a third world country has a massive brown out (electricity/power outage problem) issue in which generators, ups and ips fails constantly leaving people with no power or Internet access. It’s like living in Iraq or Pakistan except that there is no ongoing war.
The iPad provides the best Internet experience with a GPRS connection – but alas! Bangladesh has no 3G connection (2010).When the blackout or brownout does happen the iPad is the best companion an IT geek can ask for, it’s always there when you need it the most with a lot of battery juice. Because of the iPad, the blog e-cloudy can be updated in real time and the news can be published instantly from anywhere.
World War 3 may be still far away, but no doubt the iPad is a technological marvel gifted to mankind by the late genius Steve Jobs. We from Bangladesh thank you for that Mr Jobs!
