The Pros and Cons of Having an iPad

February 27, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 138

There is no doubt about the unique beauty that Apple's (current) most sold electronic device, the iPad, has. Its creators describe it as "something perfect, helpful and necessary." Of course, that statement is completely subjective and relative. Apple has undeniably used the best materials, given the best finish to the best design in creating this product, but like every other electronic device, this one too has a few minuses along with the many pluses.

All in one. The regular everyday tasks of a user are combined digitally and are made accessible through a single electronic device. From entertainment in the form of photos, videos, accessing social networks, playing music, reading eBooks and playing games, to staying up-to-date with your professional life by making notes, accessing Google maps, maintaining a daily agenda, and above all, throwing in all kinds of applications, the iPad offers it all.

On the go. The iPad's size, weight, and compactness makes it a perfect device to use on the go. However, this sleek design leads to a lack of USB ports and does not allow connection to external devices or webcams.

The screen.The screen takes up almost the entire face. Its size is 9.7 inches - small enough to fit in your bag and big enough to watch a movie on. The touch is sensitive and the zooming and expansion property makes the feature of using maps seem much more real.

No camera.Yes, the iPad does not come with a built-in camera, but the iPad 2 is compensating for that feature as it comes with its own integrated camera.

Flash platform incompatibility.The iPad also lacks Flash compatibility, which means that all web pages that include flash images, slogans or videos will appear blank in those regions where the flash element was meant to be.

Lack of multi-tasking. Being an entertainment or leisure device, it is quite reasonable to assume that one can surf the internet and play music on it at the same time. But you cannot, and this lack of multitasking ability is one of the major factors working against it.

iTunes.Those of us who are regular apple customers are familiar with the iTunes, and may have become comfortable with it too. But those who are new to using Apple products would certainly have a problem embracing iTunes. Also, almost every application and every software needs to be bought at the iTunes store before it can be used. This might cause reluctance in some consumers.
