Clearly the iPhone is a device with a computer built-in, yet we don’t call it a computer. The iPad is just a larger version of the iPhone, making it a device rather than a computer. Hold on a minute. The iPad has features not available on the iPhone. Here is a brief breakdown of some of the features that make the iPad a computer, rather than a device.

Full Safari Browser
Just like an MacBook Pro, the Safari browser is one of the best ways to surf the web on a computer. But surfing is even better that with a standard computer due to multi-touch technology.

Big Screen like a MacBook

If you plan to view movies, websites and movies, you need to upgrade to a computer like iPad.  A vivid backlit display makes photos look best in this price class for any Apple computer.

iPads are available for rent

Bigger Screen Connectivity

The iPad like any Apple computer can be connected to a projector, plasma or lcd just like a computer.  Use the iPad Dock Connector to VGA Adapter to connect an iPad to your television, projector, or VGA display. Then see your videos and slideshows on the big screen just like a MacBook Pro.

If I had to vote, I would say the iPad is both a Computer and a Device. Kinda like a tomato being both a fruit and a vegetable.
