iPad: Beautiful, But Useless

iPad: Beautiful But Useless

Josh Belzman at MSNBC thinks the iPad is “Beautiful, but useless.”

“The iPad is too heavy. It’s awkward to hold and view in public. It’s fragile. It requires expensive accessories to protect it and extract more functionality. There aren’t enough killer apps, at least apps that do anything more than their iPhone equivalent. Its wireless reception is spotty and if you’re an iPhone owner, 3G access will set you back on top of your AT&T plan and give you all the same fits. The iPad does almost nothing your smartphone or laptop can’t already do and will cost you more to do it ….”

Other than that, he loves it.

“My iPad tryst: I craved, I caved, I gave up,” Josh Belzman, MSNBC.
