Why the New iPad Will Be a Huge Winner for Apple

Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL  ) is expected to introduce a new iPad next week. Fool contributors John Reeves and David Meier take a closer look at what this means for the company and its investors.

After discussing what investors are likely to see from the event, David puts it all into an investing context. Ultimately, the user experience is critical. David further believes that consumers are more likely to buy great devices if they know there's outstanding software available to use -- either from Apple, itself, or through its developers' network.

    I like Apple too but I don't want Motley Fool to just be a long commercial for them.

    Apple has a good product, but the competition is catching up. For example, you want to get a tablet for your kids. Yet you want to control their access to the internet - you want them to be able to use the internet, but only the sites you deem appropriate. You go and use an Apple iPad, right? WRONG. Apple does not enable control over Safari to that degree. You have to remove Safari from the desktop and then you have no internet access. If you want that type of control, you use Android, right? WRONG. Andriod copied Apple, and all you can do is remove Chrome.

    If you want control over the web browsing and leave it available for your kids, you have to buy Windows 8 tablets. There they have that control in the OS where you can designate specific website your children can access. It is interesting, I have used Apple for a long time but because of deficiencies like this (and there are more of them), I am strongly considering this holiday season to buy a Windows 8 tablet instead.

    @AcuraT: You are mistaken. Apple gives users of the iOS devices (iPad, iPhone, etc.) extensive control over usage restrictions and not merely for Web browsing. Go to Settings: General: Restrictions.
