With the Apple release of the new iPad, the Streamlining your Digital Life with the new iPad infographic from NextWorth takes a look at the history of the electronic devices that the iPad has replaced in our lives. A true multifunctional device, the iPad has replaced many of our separate gadgets.
The digital world is converging on a revolutionary all-in-one device, the powerful, brand-new iPad. These are the iconic portable devices that led to (and are to some extent being replaced by) Apple’s innovation.
The lines are color coded to connect the types of devices in the timeline, and show any devices that had multiple functions of their own (like the Eee PC 701). Using a treemap in the iPad image, it also shows the amount of time spent using the different functions on the iPad from average consumers. The use of illustrations instead of photographs of all these devices keeps the design simple and focused on communicating the data.
