The simple question; would you take your iPad to a major sporting event like the Wimbledon Championships? Better yet, would you use it as your go-to camera to capture the memories of said major sporting event? My own answer? A categorical no to both. How about you?

I've been following this years Wimbledon quite closely — a British player doing well helps — and noticed an increasing amount of folks in the crowds on the televised courts holding up an iPad to take a photo. The same people who likely also had a smartphone with a much better camera in their pocket. That's without even getting to the point that holding up a 9.7-inch tablet to take a photo just looks plain ridiculous.

So, am I being a little old fashioned here, or is the notion of taking an iPad to a sports event to use a camera something you guys agree with? Why else would you need your iPad at the Wimbledon finals? I'm really curious to get your collective thoughts on this!
