Apple iPad: Our readers biggest dissapointments

I must admit now it has been a couple of days since the Apple iPad announcement I can’t help feeling a little disappointed, there are plenty of pro’s and con’s but it seems as if some of the con’s far outweigh the pro’s.

Personally I feel that Apple have somewhat limited their appeal by not offering a few commonly used technologies, such as their being no USB port, this means you cannot easily connect to a printer/scanner etc, also backing up data to a pen drive is not an option.

Another technology which Apple chose not to offer was a form of HDMI-out, lets face it HDMI is not regarded as a new technology anymore, even budget laptops support HDMI-out, I find it odd that Apple completely overlooked HDMI and instead opted for VGA-out.

Lack of multitasking on an iPhone is just about acceptable due to it being a smartphone, however a cross-over product like the iPad in my opinion needs multitasking, if you are researching something using Safari you cannot at the same time write about it using a word processor.

There are a long list of disappointments, feel free to add your opinions in the comments section below, and fill out our poll below.
