Spotting the iPad’s killer App

18 March 2010 5,078 views 2 Comments

We already know the iPad’s fate would be decided by apps. But we also believe that the real killer app is not out in the open now – given the form factor, the price point and the software, there must be a killer app that would end up fueling the iPad revolution. We thought it might be the classroom – read iPad enters the classroom. Well, it could be gaming – read Is gaming iPad’s ‘killer app’?, or, is it healthcare? – Voalte: Healthcare communication using iPad

The answer is, we dont know yet. But we have a feeling that there could be a surprise element here – (think: waiters taking orders on the iPad) – we’ll find out soon.

    There are several patents either awarded or pending on wireless device use in restaurants. Apple has one pending. IBM has a patent(5235509) which covers the customer choosing items from a display device – awarded in 1993!
