Analysis: A dozen reasons to not buy an iPad

By Anthony Caruana

Why you should wait for the next version.

The iPad may be the web's darling and the genesis of a new product category but its shortcomings and some ugly bugs are rearing their heads within days of the product's release.

For all its geek gadget appeal and innovation, a look at the spec sheet and Apple's support forums reveal a less than perfect device.

Here's a dozen reasons to not buy an iPad.

1. No USB

Lacking USB input, the iPad becomes a locked down device where the only peripherals you can use are ones that link through Apple's proprietary dock connector. And in case you didn't pay Apple enough for your iPad, they get a cut of every accessory as that port is licensed.

Without that USB port, you can't easily hookup a keyboard, mouse, digital camera, USB modem or any other useful add-on.

2. No presenter notes

The Mac faithful have been waiting for years for a decent portable presentation solution and they were all betting on the iPad.

Sadly, the iPad has failed to deliver. Keynote for the iPad lacks a bunch of its desktop versions' features including the ability to playback video on slides and some visual effects. And there's no way to display presenter notes on the iPad while it's connected to a projector.

3. Can't connect to wireless projectors

For a device that's being sold on its connectivity credentials, the iPad is unable to connect to the latest projectors in any way other than with Apple's optional cable.

4. Dealing with Office files

At the iPad's initial announcement, Apple made a big deal of the availability of their iWork productivity suite. Now users are fuming that they can't open Microsoft Office files and are finding all sorts of basic features missing.

Users have found that they can't create spreadsheets in Numbers and then export them for sharing with colleagues as Microsoft Excel files. Pages can import and export Word's formats but lacks support for headers and footers, footnotes and other essentials.

Keynote is causing grief with reports of poor font support, broken animations and video playback. Worse still, some edits on the iPad, when synced back to a desktop Mac, result in the loss of critical elements such as speaker's notes.

5. Flaky WiFi

One of the most active threads on Apple's iPad forums deals with weak WiFi connections with users reporting fluctuating signal strength on their iPad even where their notebooks are reporting full signal strength.

In some cases, connections are getting completely dropped and users need to re-enter WPA credentials to reconnect.

Some users have found that even when they have a reliable connection that performance is poor.

One user posted results from the speedtest.net app both on his iPhone 3GS and the new iPad. The iPad download speed was rated at 1.83 megabits/sec whereas the iPhone 3GS download speed of 14.77 megabits/sec was more than eight times faster.

6. No SD slot

Many people were hoping to use the iPad as a way to backup photos while travelling. For that, they''ll need to stump up for Apple's iPad Camera Connection Kit. The lack of an SD slot means that you need this pair of connectors that convert the dock connector to either an SD slot or USB port.

7. No camera for video calling/Skype

This is one of the biggies. Why would Apple think that that a mobile computer and communications device wouldn't be used for video calling? Incredibly, images of the iPad's internals reveal that there's a place for a camera on the top edge of the display but Apple deliberately chose to omit it.

All of this makes us think that iPad 2.0 will have a camera, making us a tad cynical about Apple's intention to get early adopters to stump up for a second iPad in the not too distant future.

8. Weighs 2.5x what a Kindle does

If the iPad is all about portability then why does it weigh so much? Amazon's Kindle comes in at 290g but the iPad weighs about 700g - more like a middleweight than a lightweight.

9. No file system access

Most handheld and portable devices appear as an external storage device when connected to a computer. That makes them handy for grabbing files from a colleague's computer. However, to copy files to the iPad's Document Manager, you'll need to use iTunes or get the files emailed to you. You can't even browse network file shares.

10. iBook Store might not have any material in AU

Remember the two or three years when there was no iTunes Store in Australia? It seems that we'll be destined for the same with the iBook Store.

Until Apple does deals with local publishers, only those with a US iTunes account will be able to buy books. On the upside, Amazon have a Kindle app and there's also Stanza for buying books locally so you can avoid being locked into another part of Apple's content ecosystem.

11. Micro-SIM

On one hand the use of the Micro-SIM might seem like another example of Apple being an early adopter a new standard. Or, perhaps, it's a way for Apple to keep their carrier partners happy by blocking customers from using the SIM cards from their 3G modems or mobile phones.

Either way, there's no way you'll be able to get a 3G capable iPad without at least buying a new SIM card from your carrier.

12. No printing

A portable computer that can be used on a local network, but can't talk to printers - what was Apple thinking? Everyone knows that there's no such thing as a paperless office and that being able to print documents is useful. It's not that it can't be done, as third parties have sprung up with printing solutions. But to not have it natively built into the iPad is damn annoying.

So apple announced os 4.0 and it seems to address some initial complaints about the ipad (mainly multitasking). I only really follow this stuff cause it also applies to my iPod touch. So the os will now be able multitask, albeit not true multitasking. You will be able to access other apps that are running without going to the home screen, and the apps will be able to do some things behind the scenes (just not everything, as the background apps won't have full control of the os.

I'm actually most happy about the addition of folders. Will be nice to clear up the clutter and multiple pages of apps I have.

Looks like the os will be for iPhone and iPod touch in the summer, and possibly ipad in the fall.

Worth noting that it's only for the iPhone 3GS, and the latest versions of the iPod Touch.

From what I read, the new os will also be available for 3G and older touch devices (2nd gen), but those wouldn't get the multitask feature due to hardware limitations (but would get folders and some of the other new features).

Speaking of printing, looks like Google Cloud Printing could allow the iPad to have print capability. The irony is Apple is looking to sever ties with Google (possibly even replacing the default search engine on their devices with Bing).

I read Gizmodo's report...a pretty thorough one that dispels any notions that it's not a real Apple prototype...I was very skeptical.

The phone itself is uninteresting. A camera on the front? Big whoop.

What is interesting is that Engadget had the device, and then all of a sudden Gizmodo, their rival blog, had it. And how does it get out in the first place? Then change hands??

Is this some bizarre way for Apple to get some pub or something? I can't believe they would just let one of their phones go, and then when it got all over the internet they wouldn't somehow get the content removed.

exactly, Flaco. Like Apple wouldn't be hitting Gizmodo with every type of lawsuit imaginable if they didn't want that out there. They could claim gizmodo stole it, press charges, etc.

I will say that i actually like the new flat design.

supposedly some apple engineer got drunk and left it at a bar. then some dude found it and sold it to gizmodo for 10 large. Not sure where engadget fits into the mix there.

After the pics hit the web, apples lawyers requested the device back, which would at the very least tell me it's an apple prototype. Maybe not the newest iPhone that is coming out, but at least a prototype.

This website pretty much sums up the time line with everything that happened, along with copies of said reports/conversations etc.

Has anyone had to replace a battery yet? I'm probably a few months away. I've found instructions online but the components looks kind of small and I'd rather pay someone that knows what they're doing. Any suggestions?

I'm on month 17 with mine and I'm feeling pretty good about the battery still. I thought you had to send them to apple to get the battery changed? (which is retarded, if true)

I think I'm a few months ahead of you. I'm still ok but I can definitely see the deterioration in the battery life.

The official answer is to send Apple $90 and your phone but I can't imagine a lot of people are doing that. I can't be without my phone for that long. You can find a battery and toolkit for $10-$13 and change it yourself. That would void the warranty but I'm pretty sure I'm out warranty anyway since I didn't purchase the extended.

I’d change it myself before I send it off but I’d prefer to take it to somebody local.

i know this doesn't really help you out much but the new iPhones that come out in June are *supposed* to have a removable battery. if you can wait a few more months, maybe you can just get a new phone all together.

good luck boys

After 18 months with my precious device, I dropped it while drunk and now my screen is cracked. Time for a new iPhone... hopefully the new one impresses me.

64GB? Seriously? I like how they added more colors... hopefully there are others than those light ones. The phone looks incredibly sexy btw..

Those phones aren't official. I think they are pictures from Thailand or something.
