However, the tiny screen size often made it really difficult to conduct important and intricate work through the Smartphone. This is where the need for an in-between device arose. The iPad was perfect to cater to these requirements. It had a good screen size and was not too bulky. Its sleek design, stylish body and a great user-friendly interface made it the most popular choice of the people.
