So what you think of iPAD was all the hype , the leaks , the waiting worth it , I don’t think so for me it was a major disappointment , I thought Apple with comeup with something ground breaking like they did with iPhone , iPod and even MacBook Air but all they come up with is an Oversized iPod with support for SIM Card for data usage only –

I’m not touching the price as for now it’s irrelevant as iPhone 3GS is mostly sold on contract , but feature wise all we’ll get is

  • an oversized iPod /  iPhone with no Voice support
  • 140,000 available applications which may not use the full large screen potential and many may only cover the corner covering 480 x 320 pixels
  • No Voice Support although a SIM Card can be inserted
  • TV-Out (  even iPhone 3GS support it with an accessory )
  • No builtin Camera as iPhone 3GS but does support photo transfer from an external source /  SD Card or Camera  (  Cough out more money )
  • It’s so Iphone /  iPod isq that the standard screen only has 4 icons per row just like it’s smaller siblings

So are you in for an iPad or Out for an iPOD pick your choice .
