With the Apple event last week announcing the 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.
Finally, using their own internal data, an assortment of prices are shown of the current maximum values that consumers can get by trading in their now-obsolete gadgets. With a handful of the right gadgets, you could easily get enough money back to pay for a brand new iPad!
All of the essential information is included in the design: data sources, brand logo, URL of the original high-resolution infographic landing page, company logo, copyright statement and even a mention of the designer (nice job Jeremy!).
This was an infographic design from my own company, InfoNewt, and of course, the team at NextWorth was fantastic to work with!
