Mossberg Names iPad as Best Product of 2010

Technology columnist Walt Mossberg has declared the iPad as the standout device of 2010, praising its “amazing” capabilities, particularly after the update to iOS 4.2 and its extensive app ecosystem.

Mossberg highlighted that Apple has successfully redefined what consumers expect from tablet devices, a sector where Microsoft has made attempts but not seen comparable success.

According to Mossberg, the evolution of 4G networks is another significant development to keep an eye on for the upcoming year.

He also shared his admiration for two smartphones, placing them jointly in third place: the Samsung Galaxy S and the iPhone 4.

On the flip side, Mossberg was critical of some 2010 releases, notably the Dell Streak, which he criticized for its awkward size that leaves it hanging between a phone and a tablet.
