Welcome to the "RWWL Mobile Tablets for Reference" research guide!
An ideal companion when teaching or on the go, the iPad was created to be an option for those who would prefer a sleek, energy-efficient device in place of a laptop. The device weighs 1.5 pounds with a 9.7-inch (diagonal) LED Multi-Touch display screen and functions as an all-inclusive computer. Majority of the functions, including the keyboard, are controlled by using the touch screen. External controls include the power, home, and volume buttons. A keyboard can be attached to the device via a Bluetooth connection or direct input if preferred.
