Galvin R. L. Ngo, NExT Team — 1. What iPad model can I use for the One2One Program?
The recommended model is an iPad 4 32GB Wifi. Based on our study, this model is the most suitable for our needs, given the sufficient storage and specifications, and is currently most widely available in the market. However, any existing iPad 2/3/4 or iPad Mini 16/32/64 Wifi or 3G/4G models available may be used. *Although cellular (3G/4G) models will be allowed, students will not be allowed to use the cellular function in school.
