Apple iPad – To Buy or Not To Buy – iPad Review

by Megzuson Design, Life, TechnologyAugust 29th4 comments

The long awaited Apple iPad finally debuts, but we’ll be waiting for the next-generation model
After speaking with a lot of people, I find there is still much ambiguity over the features of Apple’s latest creation, the iPad, and what the device is and is not capable of doing.

The iPad is also missing a camera, multi-tasking support, Flash support in Safari, and unfortunately, it’s limitations don’t stop there.

People that have used the iPad to demo a movies (with the 4:3 viewing ratio) argue the iPad would have been better in widescreen, making watching movies more enjoyable. But Apple wants you to use the device in any orientation as you choose, so making it widescreen might have been prohibitive in that regard.

The iPad also won’t be working on T-Mobile 3G in the U.S., and because it uses micro-SIM cards, service availability will be more limited as fewer telecom carriers to date have adopted that standard.

    I just got an Android Tablet.. It was less than half the price of an iPad and it has a camera on the front aswell as many video conferencing apps!

    Just make sure you get the Android 2.2 OS or above otherwise you will not be able to save and install unlimited amount of Apps..

    The only thing Android Needs is the Games that Apple Offers

    Its much better as its more open and free compared to Apple who keep trying bricking peoples devices that are jail broken
