Comments:
This is another product with the concept "All in one". When we can hear music by using a small FM radio which may cost Rs.100 what is the use of buying a costly mobile or ipod or ipad for the same purpose?One difference is that it is not possible to hear our favourite songs in radio but only hear what they are putting.In my personal opinion, these are just one more fancy product which is not affordable for the common man. Ipad may be useful for business people.

Ipad is the wonderful device introduced by Apple. It has some limitations. It is very costlier in India.
