Apple iPad Capabilities: Understanding What the iPad CAN'T Do


Since the iPad was released there’s been huge talk about the Apple iPad capabilities and who the iPad is really aimed at. The iPad can do a lot, and has been selling in huge numbers. However, there are a few things that the iPad just can’t do. Here’s a quick breakdown.

1) Multitasking

Multitasking is notably missing from the list of Apple iPad capabilities, and this is one omission that many have been extremely disappointed by. Although we were used to the lack of multitasking on the iPod Touch and iPhone, many expected a change to come with the iPad.

However, the iPad is designed more like a multimedia device in which one program should be played at a single time. Apple have also stated that they didn’t include it as a way to help preserve battery life. However, other devices of a similar caliber do offer this feature.

2) No USB

The iPad is likened to a portable computer, however there are a number of noticeable differences including the fact that there are no USB or FireWire ports. You can only attach any accessories using the iPad connector, meaning you can only use accessories that were specifically designed for use with the iPad.

3) No Camera or SD Card Slot

The iPad doesn’t include a camera at all, which many people can’t understand. On top of this there is no SD card reader. This is pretty standard for other notebook computers.

4) No HDMI Out Option

If you want an option to watch any videos you’ve downloaded from the iTunes store, but on another device, then you can’t do it from the iPad. There’s no video out option.

You are a life Saver!!

I recently discovered this site and I can tell you that my life has not been the same. I now come here EVERYDAY and spend at least 1 hour.

I used to spend that time browsing online fashion and beauty magazine which just means that I spend more. Now I have replaced that habit with coming here.

In future I will think about contributing articles as well. Thank you! Thank you!! Thank you!!! and God bless"
