The picture says it all isn’t it? Out of 9 persons in the above picture, 4 of them are holding their iPad. Yes, iPad is the hottest device in German’s Parliament!
A few good reasons why it is popular, first its battery life. iPad’s battery life can last 6-7 hrs of continueous usage even if you can doing web surfing or video or gaming. Thus it is critical for ministers in the parliament to have a device that can last through out the sessions.
Next the connectivity, iPad has 3G model which you can surf the web, check your emails or doing skype while you can in the Parliament.
Last but not the least, the screen is great, and it is good for reading or writing, they can actually read out their speech from iPad itself, or write their speech while waiting.
Looks like Education Minister Annette Schavan and Environment State Secretary Ursula Heinen-eaters are enjoying their iPad
