There is a new app called iBook that can be used to download and read ebooks like in Amazon Kindle. Multi-touch and accelerometer sensor enables the smooth operation of device features. iPad offers battery backup of around 10 hours.

    Wonderful product, but could have some more features like Flash support , Camera , GPS etc.

    A list of missing features of iPad is available here

  2. Anonymous

    I guess the guy who written this post is a fan boy.

    iPad has no multi-tasking
    iPad has no Flash
    iPad has no camera
    Micro SIM that won't work with other 3G
    Difficult to type keypad (its not a phone. So we need a good responsive keypad.

    You and other fan boys in India would by anything with Apple on it. Shame on your ๐Ÿ˜€

  3. sapam

    Well, i think its too early to speculate even before people have started using it. Let it come to market and have people started using it and also let the developers come out with interesting Apps for iPad, then only we can judge if its good or bad. Until then there is no point pulling out what missing and whats not.

    Well, as for the list of missing people are reporting i would like to say something about them:
    1) iPad has no multi-tasking
    – Well, what do you expect it to do.. its not a full fledged computer. Its primary function is Music, Movie, WebBrowsing, Gaming(handheld), iBooks, Documents etc. And basically you will be running one of them at a time and not all, and thats no-brainer. Also, by default Apple iPhone OS support Music/Song on hte background alogn with many apps.

    2) iPad has no Flash
    – Again, here Flash is a dying technology. Many Major Companies like Google etc are pushing for HTML5, even youtube have converted all their videos from Flash to newer format. So, very soon Flash will be history. So, it makes complete sense not to add the burden of carrying along a dying technology and focus on what coming up.

    3) iPad has no camera
    – On the device there is no camera. And again there is no technically and logically suitable position to place a camera on a tablet unless you want some flimsy rotating section to hold the camera. But iPad still has province to support usb Camera through its docking port.

    4) Difficult to type keypad
    – Well, hardly anybody has used it so, its too early to comment that the touch keypad is bad.

    So, all i can say is wait for iPad to be released and then once many have started using it including yourself, write your review.

    I am no Apple fanboy but, I appreciate great technology and no doubt since many year Apple has been coming up with great technologies for the people. So, instead of throwing out whatever we have against iPad, give it some time to come into market and settle down. Apple is trying to bring life to a section of computing which other have failed. So, all I can say is wait and watch.


  4. Apple suX

    @sapam : You are definitely an Apple fan boy. Its very clear from the way you commented.

    Apple blocks flash as they don’t want people to run website that play online media using Flash. If they allow, people won’t purchase from their iTunes store.

    IPad is a tablet device. Its not a phone or music device. So definitely the users would need to type more that what they needed in a phone. So iPad virtual keypad sucks too.

    Camera is available in netbooks available at this price.

    So Apples policy is just to create big news. Next time they will release iPad with camera and something else. So they miss something in each versions to create hype and rumors for next version.

    Apple you moron.

    For each and every peep, who think apple sucks, should just one time, only just once use apple technology. I think you have never tested apple, they are far better than all other companies walking in the market including Sony.

  7. Nikhil

    Well all i can say is that Apple is just a platform to make a statement.
    It doesn’t actually contain user friendly features.
    It is actually something which is new and they have certainly created market focusing on people who wish to spend just to make statements.
    Personally i use iPod and Macbook and i still feel many features are missing.
    But the only thing i never miss is the eye of people.
    So Apple certainly has chosen good people to create market and now shifting on to making its stuff largely available to all like launch of this iPad for just $499.
    But i would like to suggest another thing is that Apple OS is free from viruses but many things cannot be installed on it which windows easily allow.
    On same lines there is no comparison of iPod’s sound quality and more importantly service (i got my iPod and headphones replaced after using 11 months and that too without any hitch an explanations) which is numero uno to any other competitor.
    So if there are certain things where they lack (or they lack intentionally) they have earned a soft corner among people who use them.
    Like even iPod has many things which i can get at much lower price than Apple’s but service is something that will prompt me to have this only same is with Macbook.
    So, make a wise deision on what your preferences are and go ahead.


  8. PS

    Totally agree. I actually live in a Microsoft world (given that most of the work is off Visual Studio), but there is NO other device out there which is always ON. I really dont want to BOOT my machine (oh I know I can hibernate, but that’s not the same) and start a whole set of apps just to order pizza or show my kids pics to someone. I know that there is a ton of things that could be added onto the iPad, but the fact that its a good wide screen that’s always on and mostly connected (with either wifi or 3G) is a BIG point for me. All the rest, the cameras, flash etc, I can live with.

  9. Santosh

    Well for the starters I would like to support Sapam here. He seems to have made some good points. And Nikhil, good view about the service as well. While my friend who has a HP laptop took a week to get his DVD drive repaired, I got it done for my MacBook within a day. Great service indeed.

    Now all we have to do is wait for the device to release. I would be buying it for sure. Either now, or after the first update they bring on it. Cos yes, Apple has the habit of updating it’s products for the better. Not adding a flimpsy software update and saying update, but a substantial update.

  10. RajeshN

    Am waiting for them to add
    1. Camera
    2. 3G
    so my wife can use it without me having to teach her much

  11. chakru

    Hmm Well apple doesn’t provide any new features in their product, their products just designed to enhance the user experience a bit more than what others has to offer for almost double or triple the price. I don’t want to double the price to get the same features what others provide just to get the feel of what apple provides on a temporary basis. We all get used to our products after using it for a month, I just don’t want to pay more just for that. They need to provide more features for the price they tag over their products.

  12. Jagminder

    am agree wid them who said dat we have to wait till it is launched in India ……presently im using macbook and iphone 3gs(16gb)…..both are very very gud ……as we all know iphone is known for itz touch and itz features and macbook is very very gud …….!!!!

  13. aditya

    i think dat i pad is useless and all da shortcomings shud be first removed and den a newer version shud be launched

  14. Sohil Post author

    Bro………… whats your problem with Apple…….

    how can you deny , what revolution I-POD brings to the world of music, and what IPhone did to Mobile inudustry…….. Now I-PAD……… 80 % Top Executives around the world dont want to carry LapTops, and definitly they dont want to sit infront of deskptops………

    and I-PAD is a Luxury on affordable price.. Apple know what executives want…and they deliver it with best…

    who cares if its keyboard is not so good..
    and who cares if its having flash, camera or not

    Beauty sell- thats the truth of business

    and i am sure… its the business funda – to launch camera, usb, dev. toolkit in comming years- and whats wrong it that-if they know better business than others…

    grow up…

    embrace the techonology

  15. chaming

    Apple acting like they have created all technology related to mobile phones. Remember they started mobile business in 2007 only. Nokia, Palm, HTC, Microsoft and all where in the mobile market. They copied innovations, and somehow managed file patents for all those technologies. Now they are using those patents to counter the true innovators.

    Remember that Apple used existing telecom technologies to create iPhone. None in this world can create a new phone from dust. Being the pioneers in market, Nokia and HTC has have made several contributions for the development of mobile phone industry. The mistake they made is that they didn’t applied for specific patents. Checkout Wikipedia to know who originally developed multi-touch. Its not Apple, they just copied the idea. And yes, soon they would sue god for creating Apple fruit which uses their brand name.

  16. yashvinder hooda

  22. Xahar Hassan

    Apple is definitely a revolution maker in technology.
    iPad’s design clearly indicates whom it targets.
    And there are this competitors who are gonna come up with iPad killers.
    So, let’s just sit relaxed and watch the technology fight and choose our product
    from multiple options available.

  23. bakar

    man apple is good for health…a apple a day keeps the tension away..thats what my grand father has always taught to my brother. now he is no more and i want to buy everything related to apple includimng apples. when there is summer season in india i cant find apples so better is to buy apple products…go go go..but some apples…be careful before buying apples as mother worm may have injected her tiny baby/larva in the apple …dont let a larva kreep up ur skull and then result into sudden death..newayz…watever..

    I just gone through all the pessimist message, because of these kind of people ipad launch is getting delayed in India even though it has sold millions of i-pad across globe.
    From last 15 days i am using ipad, i just want to sat there is no such a unique device on earth; that is why it is sold in that large numbers. Definitely this device is not for average class this is a luxury

  27. Ravi

    I Pad really rocks they should have added features like the camera and also the USB that would make it better.Waiting for it to release in India.

  28. STEAVE's curse

    You know, mp3 players were around, then Apple gave us iPods.
    Microsoft Windows XP/Vista was around, then Apple gave us Leopard/Snow Leopard.
    Phones were around, then Apple gave us the iPhone.
    tablets were around, then apple gave us iPad.
    Yes, many of the things that Apple gave us with the iPhone 4 are already around, but hey, basketball players were around for a while, then Michael Jordan showed up ๐Ÿ˜‰

    It’s not just WHAT is done, but HOW its done that makes the difference. Acknowledge it.๏ปฟ

  29. Nitigya

    I am sorry to say but your information on iPad’s launch and price in India hardly has any base and seems to be just based on pure speculation. Its not yet launched in India (Its almost end of June now). More over, just dollar conversion and adding VAT don’t provide any cost estimate. You can look at the costings of other Apple products if you wan’t to compare. So, don’t just try to make up news or use keywords (India in this case) to get attention or search results.

  30. Mobiclue Team Post author

    Thanks for your comment and criticism. We posted it as all other websites are doing the same. We couldn’t stop ourselves from posting the expected price of iPad in India. We think that people also need to know the range at which it would be available here. We have added the price of iPad 3G and WiFi from Ebay India. You can get all models in India at that price. We will updated again with the official launch.

    Thanks again,

  32. Nitigya

    @Mobiclue Team: Thanks for updating the prices and making the details more clear regarding the availability of iPad in India. I understand you need to share information considering competition, but It can always be done in more clear and fair way as in the article now.

    haha this is almost to apple 4g but its price is very high……1 of every 1000 would buy ipad whereas 250 of every 1000 would buy iphone 4g which costs just 36000-42000

  35. Dost

    If you own an iPad, download this free application targeted for Indian audience. This app allows to read most popular news papers across India.

  36. Keith'O'

    I have been using the 64Gb 3G model for the past two months. I would like to suggest setting up a US account on iTunes and registering the device. This would get you loads of Apps, not available on the Indian site. Besides this you could also buy prepaid iTunes cards, to add credit to iTunes, which would enable you to buy great apps. Although I am a hard core Apple user, I would certainly recommend using an I pad as a replacement for a laptop, while on the go. It’s a blast when it comes to entertainment and the utilities are awesome. If you need instructions on how to go about setting up an account or buying prepaid ($) cards, then leave a note and I’ll give you a run down.

  37. Syed Kamran

    THAT is the device people have been waiting for months to drool over? It is just a big, (really) expensive iPod touch! How is this supposed to compete with netbooks when it only has a 1 GHz processor, a slightly beefed-up smart phone OS, no camera, no multitasking, and, once again, a VERY high price. I can buy a Dell mini 10 with 10x the storage, a faster processor, more RAM (most likely), a camera for Skype and such, and a FULL computer OS for about half the price of the starting model!

    This device is so awesome that any gadget geek want to buy it please tell me the price range of 32 gb ad 64 gb.

    Hi All the jokers who read all these comments area **********.

    This iPad is absolutely a junk product. Please try Samsung Galaxy tab

  45. Rajesh

    Been using the 3G version for some months. Works fine. Checking e-mails has never been easier. Photos, music all very good. Battery backup very good. On the whole a great toy for grownups ๐Ÿ™‚ The only big limitation is that you need to buy accessories even to connect a pendrive.

  46. Me

    For Apple India is a dumping ground. When they want to dump their older versions, they launch in India. That has happened in the case of iPhone. When 4G was launched, they released 3GS here.
    So either people should boycott apple or take it to Apple India. Maximum apps created on itunes are from India. They need to RESPECT INDIA.

  47. vishal

    Ive been using the ipad since may’10..the virtual keypad is excellent and i had to return the additional keypad that i had bought.the touch is fabulous ..way out experience..yes there are issues with utube downloads in terms of clarity…its a buy for certain..recommended
