Can the Apple iPad achieve mass-market appeal like the iPhone? What can 4G and 3G do to help the iPad succeed? The Apple iPad does seem an amazing device, one that has advantages over tablet computers that preceded it but it needs media partners to achieve mass-market appeal.

The next iPhone 4G will have a faster connection that will open more doors, and while the iPad 3G is the only plan currently, it seems logical that we will see a future iPad 4G. TGDaily are reporting that Steve Jobs has been seen in New York City with his iPad, which he then took to the offices of Time Inc and New York Times.

Sources of TGDaily say that Steve Jobs sat with Arthur Sulzberger – Times publisher – to demonstrate the iPad and its features, and what it means for “the future of media”. You can read more about this on TGDaily.

Was the iPad supposed to be TV Platform? Barrons.com ask this question, and look at the possibility of the iPad being a “portable set-top box”. They look at the iPad’s “3G (and eventually 4G) wireless connection” and how this can be used to let you keep watching live TV, wherever you are.

Have a read of both the above articles, let us know what you see in iPad’s future and could it achieve mass-market appeal?
