Why I won’t buy an Apple iPad yet

Why I won’t buy an Apple iPad yet

apple-ipad-tablet-device-420x0 Just coming back from the Zurich Bahnhofstrasse Apple store where I did play 35 minutes with an IPAD, the shop were not crowed nor full of potential customer as I was also downstair checking accessories.

I was interested by the 64Gb, Wifi + 3G iPad

  • I don’t like the current operating system: the “desktop” look really empty: it has way too much space between icons,
  • I did not see any special killer application made for the iPad, a lot are currently just scaled up. The gallery, the shop are nothing special at all.
  • The size make it a device I wont have in my pocket, making my iPhone 3GS still relevant in most cases,
  • 700 grams is heavy, try 25 minutes lifting it!
  • I miss a camera (front AND back camera with Flashlight please),
  • The GPS is only available on the 3G version, not on all 3 WIFI models,
  • Ridiculous 3G Data plan at 19CHF for 300MB and 39CHF for 2GB,


To confirm my first impressions, I went through Google to check what others are saying

If you have bought one, you may be interested in
