Is the Apple iPad a good choice for Tampa Bay Realtors?
August 31, 2010
In my opinion the Apple iPad is currently a waste of money for Tampa Bay Realtors. The main problem is that you can’t run Internet Explorer on the iPad. Apple has made sure that only their Safari browser works on the iPad, thus rendering the iPad useless for Tampa Bay Florida Realtors who depend on Internet Explorer to access the Multiple Listing System.
Yes, there are other bells and whistles the iPad offers that could be of benefit to Realtors, but without direct access to MLS I think most Realtors would find the price of the iPad to outweigh it’s value to them. Let’s all hope Apple addresses this issue in the future.
