An iPad for each and everyone of us

Just as the iPad came out some were complaining that the iPad does not have support for multiple users. You configure an iPad for one person and just one person.  In fact most applications you can use to really take advantage of the mobility of the device will require personal information.  Some examples of applications that you need to connect to a service in order to really take advantage of all functionalities are: Evernote, InstaPaper and all Twitter clients (obviously).

I don’t expect that Apple will make any changes to iOS in this regard, however. After using an iPad for a few days I came to the conclusion that iPads are personal devices.  They are at least as personal as your phone where you have all your friends contacts, but I think it is even more so than that.

In the iPad is an intrinsically personal device.  On it you will have your photos, your books, your magazines and other information of day to day usage such as TO DOs and so and so on.  It is not something to be shared by among several different people.

Were it not for the fact that Apple is already selling every iPad they can make as fast as they can make them, reducing their price would quickly move the iPad to whole new level of sales, with many early adopter households buying additional devices, one for each family member.  iPads will be just like mobile phones in the future, every one will have one.
