Problem with conceptially new products
Authored by: epapushev on Jan 28, '10 12:08:41AM

Almost all of the opinions I've read are "I cannot do the things I do on my iPhone, MacBook/Netbook/etc., on the iPad the same way I do them on the other devices, so it sucks. It is larger than the iPhone, and is less 'mobile', but it is smaller than laptop/netbook, so it is less capable, again it suck!"

Nope, it does not suck. That is a different product and trying to fit it in the phone/netbook category is pretty much lame. It is the same as comparing any netbook to, say, a MacBook Pro, or any kind of laptop to a Mac Pro.

Before having an iPhone, I had a top-of-the-line Pocket PC (OS is not to be mentioned as it is a shame to call it Operating System). I had different top-of-the-line mobile phones with document editing capabilities, calendar, etc. None of those I had the nerve to use because of awful user experience. On the iPhone I use almost all of the built-in apps, plus some additional.

It is the User Experience that matters, and it is the software and applications for that matter. Otherwise, each and every device is just a pile of unusable hardware.

For the iPad I am pretty sure I will find all kinds of applications. So, I take 2 (WiFi-only and a WiFi-3G) ... :P
