iPad: Big iPod or Huge iPhone?

Filed under: Technology — wan muhamad azmi mamat @ 4:31 pm

Apple Inc unveiled its wildly anticipated “iPad” on Wednesday in the biggest product launch since the iPhone three years ago.

Basically all they’ve said is this is a really big iPod touch, so far it has a better screen and so you can design better apps for it, but Apple hasn’t solved some of the media use problems that they’re in a position to solve.

The screen is stunning, and it’s 1024 x 768. Feels just like a huge iPhone in your hands.

Following are the features that are missing in the iPad due to which it gained so much disappointment.

  • iPad USB ports – USB ports in this iPad are absent, so a person can’t plug in his USB drive to transfer photos to it.
  • iPad Flash – As Apple won’t approve Flash player so no flash support is present there.
  • iPad Multi-tasking – Multi-tasking is unacceptable for a Tablet having a starting price-point of $499 so it is not present in it.
  • iPad Camera – No camera is present on the front or back of the iPad.
