So did anyone rush out to purchase a iPad or at the very least check one out and play with one? I'll admit I didn't rush out to check it out but I have been reading the reviews. I am interested in the whole tablet computing and I think we will see this year many different options and that they will revolve.
Remember when the first iPhone came out? It wasn't that long after that there was a new updated model leaving folks who just purchased their iPhones stuck. I think I will give tablets a good year before I really look into making a purchase.
So just my observation on reading that I don't care about with the ipad. First there is NO USB port. This I think by far is the worst issue. I mean the larges iPad I could purchase is a 64GB so with no USB there is no way for me to plug in a flashdrive or a external. I really don't get the skipping that feature.
NO built in camera or webcam? Come on with all that money can't you add that atleast? I mean your iphones already have it so why not the ipads?
Another thing that bothers me greatly is that the screen is glass. OK lets face it how many times have you dropped your cell phone or a book? Glass....really?? I know that plastic screens are also used by other manufactures and work fine. I will say that Gizmodo did a flowchart on just the glass screen of the ipad that made me laugh:
Like I said I think I'll wait till the other manufactures release their tablets to make a decision. I think once they are released you will see new versions of the ipad come out with more features and possibly at a lower price.
I would love to hear from a new ipad owner on what they like or what disapointed them.
