iPad has opened newer avenues for technocrats. People across the globe can socialize on the go, share information and perform other sensational tasks on their 9.7 inch tablet iPad. However, there are truly certain misses that iPad does not address or is silent at.
Some of the missing features that otherwise could have made iPad ideal products are as follows:
• Its inability to support Flash files is another major limitation. Internet applications are getting more richer and flash support in iPad would have meant rich browsing Internet experience for users. Typically with in-built flash support, users aren’t required to refresh the content.
• Multitasking features are missing in iPad. Users cannot listen to music while browsing Internet. Switching back and forth between the web pages is also not possible in the browser enabling iPad. Basically it is as simple as saying “you can do only one thing at a time in iPad”.
• iPad lacks the capability of recording videos. There is no video camera and hence the possibility of video chat is impossible with iPad as a standalone device. Ideally users would have wanted a platform wherein they could have created, edited and shared their videos on YouTube or other popular networks on the go.
• It provides a standard video support which is found in iPhone and iPod Touch limited to 720 pixels H.264 main profile. Advanced video support should have been provided or a mini HDMI port to push videos to HDTV would have enhanced its features.
• iPad does not support handwriting recognition. Users would have liked to jot down a note or two with fingers. Although the touch keypad on the screen is pretty fine to go with, hand writing recognition capabilities should have bettered its overall features.
iPad promises to be a powerful device. In terms of design it is somewhere in between a smart phone and laptop. Only time will tell if Apple incorporates newer applications and features in their iPad release. At the moment it is the only one in its league to have launched such a lovely and powerful device.
