who says this thing won't have flash? It wasn't available during the keynote - there's a few months for adobe to tweak the full plug in to work.
It does have gps - don't guess, maybe go along to the apple web site and read the tech cpecs.
There is a usb and sd card attachment.
The screen resolution is that of a standard 15" screen, compressed onto a 9.7" size - that's a damn good display.
No proper file system? What are you talking about. This thing will view any important file that is emailed to you:
"viewable document types: .jpg, .tiff, .gif (images); .doc and .docx (microsoft word); .htm and .html (web pages); .key (keynote); .numbers (numbers); .pages (pages); .pdf (preview and adobe acrobat); .ppt and .pptx (microsoft powerpoint); .txt (text); .rtf (rich text format); .vcf (contact information); .xls and .xlsx (microsoft excel)"
what other essentials are missing from that list?
Its not a laptop, it's not a personal computer replacement.
Why don't people get this.
Re. The camera - yes, it's a shame that the first version doesn't have one - but how would you hold this thing without your arms aching at an angle that isn't looking up your nose.
No, it's not as good as a macbook pro. It's not meant to be a laptop.
Your comment is full of assumptions based on rumor, which is clearly rebuked via a quick look at the official apple page for this device.
"5. No proper sim/phone capability."
yes, because it's not a phone. My hammer can't make my morning coffee. Doesn't make it a bad hammer.
why did'nt they incorporate the usb and sd card attachment into the docks? It would have solved a lot of problems !!
