Apple iPad – To Buy or Not To Buy – iPad Review
Another annoyance for users will be having to use adaptors to connect common peripherals, including USB devices, such as cameras to load photos onto the iPad. Since the iPad is so slim, Apple decided, for many possible reasons such as cost, to not include direct connectivity support, even micro-USB isn’t supported directly from the iPad. People will surely not enjoy having to find and connect bulky peripherals just to load photos, or even more importantly, having to travel with adaptors.
Apple is essentially claiming there is room for another intermediary device between smartphones and computers, but what you should really ask yourself is what you would be getting with the iPad: what is the iPad’s value proposition?
According to Apple, you would be able to browse the web better than any other device, but what about the fact that the iPad does not even support Flash? How about not being able to play your favorite song via YouTube and to continue browsing the web without multi-tasking support?
Despite all of these limitations, the iPad will serve more as a strategic product for Apple.
With the release of the iBooks application, the iPad will be competing directly with Amazon’s highly successful Kindle eBook reader.
Apple to date has confirmed partnerships with five major publishers that include: McGraw-Hill, HarperCollins, Simon & Schuster, Penguin Group, Hachette Book Group.
It is expected that Apple will further develop iBooks, eventually rolling out enhanced eBooks with video and audio. The idea is for companies to develop media directly for the iPad, assuming mass adoption as seen with the iPhone.
Like the iPhone, the iPad is also being marketed as a gaming platform. Recently, popular game titles such as “GTA: China Wars”, and other popular games from traditional gaming platform publishers such as Electronic Arts Inc. and Gameloft Inc. have released iPhone versions of their popular games that will also work on the iPad.
