The much hyped tablet device of Apple – iPad 2 is incapable of replacing laptops or PCs as yet. The tablet lacks the features and finer aspects that would have made it a formidable gadget. The content editing features are remarkably poor and virtually impossible on iPad. The new iPad 3 would also reciprocate almost the same features apart from boosting the camera functionality on the device. The end users have been cribbing badly about the enablement of a USB port on the device for connecting devices like printers, scanners, USB sticks and other peripherals. However, Apple has been adamant about it and prefers to provide on the air updates to the users.
Undoubtedly, Apple is against PC tethering but can it really eliminate the need of connecting with it? The other concerning fact, has been haunting the end users pertains to absence of native flash support. Ironically, after Apple announced flash free products only a handful of service providers went on to alter their apps or sites. The web world is full of flash content and validation streams based on the technology but such content can’t be viewed on an iPad 3 for sure.
So if you have been planning to purchase on iPad over a laptop device then stay put for some more time. Let the tablet market mature over a period of time and only then you should consider thinking of an iPad over the laptop or netbooks on the go.
