iWish the iPad had:
- A Camera
- Adobe Flash Support
- A more powerful OS than the one running on iPhones
Realistically, I don’t think keyboards are obsolete. I was hoping the iPad would be a less expensive alternative to Jazzmutant’s Lemur or Dexter, but… it’s just not happening without the proper inputs and outputs and it’s just not happening without a proper OS.
There is a lot of hype forming around the iPad, but iWonder how it’s better than a regular hackintosh tablet PC. iThink things will probably improve by the second generation, but iDoubt Apple will be the only one in the market by then.
Updates since iPad Launched in Q1, 2010…
September 28, 2010: Announcing more interoperable tablet computers…
Here’s Research in Motion (RIM) annoucing another potential iPad competitor “PlayBook” a slightly smaller, thinner, lighter weight Tablet excepted to hit the market March 2011. Samsung’s galaxy is supposed to be $200-300. RIM target’s a corporate/government user base for the Playbook, but the price hasn’t been announced yet. I’m guessing it will be more $$ than the Galaxy, but maybe not more than the iPad. but the RIM device should help RIM pick up some revenue that they’re not getting in the smartphone market if they really sell the 6,000,000 Playbooks they expect to. The interesting thing is that… it’s a bit more interoperable. You can plug in [:
I’m more interested to be in the Kno, though. Maybe you’ve heard of it…
From the commuter student or bike-riding user perspective, it’s nice not to have to carry as many books.
