With regard to rumors of Apple's iPad (Tablet PC) have been go round for months, now this tablet PC has finally released. Many Apple fans maybe have wiped hands shake it off to buy an Apple iPad. But, wait a minute, please do a decision after reading this article...
Reason 1: Big, Ugly Bezel
Have you seen the bezel on this thing?! It's huge! I know you don't want to accidentally input a command when your thumb is holding it, but come on.
Reason 2: No Multitasking
This is a backbreaker. If this is supposed to be a replacement for netbooks,how can it possibly not have multitasking? Are you saying I can'tlisten to Pandora while writing a document? I can't have my Twitter appopen at the same time as my browser? I can't have AIM open at the sametime as my email? Are you kidding me? This alone guarantees that I willnot buy this product.
Reason 3: No Cameras
No front facing camera is one thing. But no back facing camera either? Why the hell not? I can't imagine what the downside was for including at least one camera. Could this thing not handle video iChat?
Reason 4: Touch Keyboard
So much for Apple revolutionizing tablet inputs; this is the same big, ugly touchscreen keyboard we'veseen on other tablets, and unless you're lying on the couch with yourknees propping it up, it'll be awkward to use.
Reason 5: No HDMI Out
Want to watch those nice HD videos you downloaded from iTunes on your TV?Too damned bad! If you were truly loyal, you'd just buy an Apple TValready.
Reason 6: The Name iPad iPad
Get ready for Maxi pad jokes, and lots of 'em! and maybe you are not aware of that there's a daily-use item also be called pad, please see the below picture:
Reason 7: No Flash
No Flash is annoying but not a dealbreaker on the iPhone and iPod Touch.On something that's supposed to be closer to a netbook or laptop? Itwill leave huge, gaping holes in websites. I hope you don't care aboutstreaming video! God knows not many casual internet users do. Oh wait,nevermind, they all do.
Reason 8: Adapters, Adapters, Adapters
Somuch for those smooth lines. If you want to plug anything into this,such as a digital camera, you need all sorts of ugly adapters. You needan adapter for USB for god's sake.
Reason 9: It's Not Widescreen
Widescreen movies look lousy on this thing thanks to its 4:3 screen, according to Blam, who checkedout some of Star Trek on one. It's like owning a 4:3 TV all over again!
Reason 10: Doesn't Support T-Mobile 3G
Sure, it's "unlocked." But it won't work on T-Mobile, and it uses microSIMs that literally no one else uses.
Reason 11: A Closed App Ecosystem
The iPad only runs apps from the App Store. The same App Store that is notorious for banning apps for no real reason, such as Google Voice. Sure,netbooks might not have touchscreens, but you can install whateversoftware you'd like on them. Want to run a different browser on youriPad? Too bad!
