The naked truth about iPad

The new iPad from Apple is definitely not a netbook replacement but it is obvious that, large multi touch screen will kick some butts when it is about to launch. Especially freedom to surf the web with wifi or 3G where applicable will let iPad lovers carry this shiny electronics toy wherever they go on the long run. But, PC enthusiasts who want to run power applications will find it lacking.

An other day without Adobe Flash

At the end of the day, you'll be getting a fancy entertainment device capable of covering your basic needs like surfing, listening and watching. Anyway, if you're about to buy one, enjoy it. You will not be throwing your money away. But do not cry after your third of fourth usage about the ones you will be missing when you could buy a netbook instead. My priority for a surfing device would be Adobe Flash capability which both iPhone, iTouch and iPad lacks. 

According to Apple, iPad specifications are as follows:
  • Currently it has only two models, one with wifi and the other with wifi+3G
  • It's priced between $499 and $829 depending on the capacity and 3G feature
  • It has assisted GPS only in wifi+3G model
  • Processor is 1GHz Apple A4. May be powerful as new Intel Atom processors that can play HD content
  • Flash capacity varies between 16, 32 or 64GB
  • Screen resolution is nearly 10” with widescreen LED-backlit technology
  • 3G capability can only be used for data. As of launch there were no specific keynote dedicated to voice plans which can be made through a headset (bluetooth would be nice)
  • Operating system is very much the same as used in iPhone and iTouch
  • And the most interesting part is about battery power. iPad can play movies for 10 hours with its fully charged battery. Strange isn't it?
Those specs should tell you one concrete truth. This is an entertainment device dedicated to your daily non-commercial, or preferrably personal needs. Things that are related to work should wait till you get to touch a Mac or PC when you're at home/work/school.

  14. I see the Steave Job's presentation about the i-pad. I like the device. Life is going to be more speedy. Actually the idea very fantastic seems to me because this is neither a mobile phone nor a so called pc and I think it will be very popular in the market day by day.

  22. For me i iPad is just another cellphone that brags about it's wifi or wifi3g yes you can surf the net, but you cannot do what you do in your everyday PC life, since im a PC Enthusiast i really dislike this iPad! You'll just hear from people saying if you have one of this, "Wow look at those iPad it's new from apple, maybe that guy is rich". What a bluff!

  26. technology advances so fast. and it is amazing to see slick gadgets like ipad to contain so many features and functions.

  27. Without an operating system ........it will never replace anything. Just like with the iPhone, I tried this out and in seconds I found one limitation after another and another and another. This entire idea seems like it was built for retarded humans and primates that finger paint....

    ReplyDelete
  28. You are right. Todays apple technology is more about trendy and fancy "jewels" than about professional tools. Less design, more function, i say.

    ReplyDelete
  29. i think from my view ipad is nothing but an enlarged view of iphone. but not netbook.

    ReplyDelete
  30. great technology but just as you said, I too need the adobe flash on my daily job which the Ipad lacks. Although I appreciate the other features of the ipad since I can use it though for my basic net surfing job when out of office, I hope they would design a more complex product which will benefit more entrepreneurs out there.

  31. This device can only be used for entertainment purposes. This may be the disappointment factor those who work online.

    I like the fact that it's easy to carry and I like that Apple is a great company which never make easy-to-broke electronic.

  35. seems that everyone wanted that gadget, I am just curious this product if it has flaws. I am not sure where I read about the news that apple cannot handle all customer complaints due to many flaws as far as I remember.

  40. I was really looking forward to the ipad but when I found out that there would be no multitasking and that it doesn't play flash, I was really disappointed. I'll probably wait for another generation to come out and then, maybe, buy it.

  41. Nice write up on the IPad. After reading through the specs you listed, I realize now that this is just a glorified ebook reader. It's definitely not something I'd fork out cash for...yet. Give it a couple years when Apple starts putting more useful apps in it and gives it a good upgrade.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Maybe this new product from apple called iPad is just another bigger version of the iPod. Will look forward to try it.
