Pros, Iashah Niazi: iPad will be able to run third-party apps without modifications. Kind of like the iPhone! Yes, Apple will profit off of an even more hyped-up app store, but users will benefit from the flexibility and creativity brought in by (mostly profit-seeking) developers. Also key: the iBooks e-reader app. It may not instantly rescue all of journalism, but it’s a start, and this may make the iPad an attractive choice for consumers who don’t want to buy black-and-white, restricted Internet e-readers. More broadly, in the words of David Carr, “the iPad is creating and killing categories at the same time;” the free market says that third-party devs will best be able to figure out what to do with all of that potential. http://www.geekosystem.com/ipad-pros-and-cons-specs-features/, Iashah Niazi Apple's iPad has many excellent features. It is small and portable and it has 3G capability, allowing it to connect to the Internet in more places than Wi-Fi hot-spots. In addition, the iPad is competitively priced with other netbook competitors. Apple's iWork is available for the iPad at a negligible cost. The iPad's battery life is 10 hours, and the entire machine is made of environmentally friendly and recycled products. http://www.ehow.com/list_6140334_apple-netbook-pros-cons.html
Cons, Iashah Niazi:It’s running on the iPhone operating system (currently, version 3.2); no OS X. Among other things, this means no multitasking: as in, you can’t run two applications at the same time. Also: no Flash (see below). Engadget: “There’s no multitasking at all. It’s a real disappointment. All this power and very little you can do with it at once. No multitasking means no streaming Pandora when you’re working in Pages. http://www.geekosystem.com/ipad-pros-and-cons-specs-features/, Iashah Niazi The Apple iPad's keypad is on the touch screen and could be difficult for users to navigate. Although select devices has 3G capabilities, this feature has to be turned on with a service agreement with AT&T. Though there is a microphone, the device is missing a camera. Last, the screen is exposed, unlike that of the iPhone and iTouch, and can easily be scratched. http://www.ehow.com/list_6140334_apple-netbook-pros-cons.html
