|Next Generation iPad|
Update: The iPad 2 has been officially unveiled on March 2. See the details here: The iPad Second Version | Generation 2 of the iPad
So you are one of the million fans of iPad and is exited with the second generation iPad? What will users expect on this version is not yet disclosed. Many rumors reveal that the iPad 2 would slightly vary in terms of weight, dimensions or probably in form factor compared to the current models of this tablet PC from Apple
Many people are expecting the iPad 2 to be feature-packed, as apple is known to be pioneer of exciting features on their gadgets. Also, iPad fans are upbeat that the next ipad will deal the previous versions shortcoming. Such lapses include ipad's lack of cameras, which is really very important for mobile device like the iPad. Imagine just how useless your tablet without cameras. Or let's say you don't need a high-resolution rear camera for taking videos and photos, at least you need a front camera for video chatting!
Another issue Apple needs to address is the iPad's lack of support to the universal format Flash. Yes Flash can be considered universal as it is supported by major industry players including Microsoft, Google, HP etc. - of course with the exception of Apple. But what is the big problem with Apple of not supporting the Flash? The Apple's excuse of Flash being too buggy is not acceptable. As mentioned, other popular names are supporting the Flash and make no complain about it being too buggy. Apple must have some reasons for this - of course they want to protect the sale of their apps in the Apple App Store. Right! Or prove me wrong Apple with your next iPad version.
The iPAd 2 should also cope to the current competition are other mainstream tablets these days are feature packed! Just take for example the new Motorola Xoom. It boasts a dual core processor, has cameras, has the latest Android 3.0 OS and possesses other attractions.
Will the iPad have what it takes to be still the most popular in the tablet market? Or will the current competition has already outlasted this tablet yet to be unveiled. We will find this out these coming days.
