In the News An interesting discussion is currently raging through the world of computing, or more accurately, through the world of bloggers and analysts. It basically comes down to this: should the iPad be included in laptop and desktop sales figures? If it is included - Apple becomes the largest PC manufacturer in the United States. But, if the iPad should be included - why not the modern smartphone?

An iPad is nothing more than a large iPod Touch with more emphasis on media. It runs the same OS, has the same apps, has pretty much the same hardware.

If you don't consider an iPod Touch to be a computer, then you really can't call an iPad a computer either.
