Apple Announces iPad
OK - enough hype about the iPad. Sure it's new and shiny... but it fails for me on at least two counts:
1.) It's like a big iTouch - no memory card slot for any type of removable external storage (SDHC, MicroSD etc.). Come on, what would it have cost to add an SD card slot?
2.) No removable battery.
Further, even the maximum 64GB of storage is rediculous for this kind of device. With all it's capabilities users will likely try to use this as a computing platform thats a sub-set of the Mac platform - the way Netbooks are a sub-set of PCs. When they do, that 16, 32 or 64GB mem...
Also there's a camera attachment and SD card slot attachment too. But what are you expecting, an internal HDD?
Apple, reguardless of how anybody feels about them as a company, has probably played a big role in bringing down the price of flash memory, cause of how much flash memory they have boughten over the years from Samsung for the millions & millions of ipods, Iphones, and Itouch devices sold.
