So you think it's the iPad that's missing features?

It’s amazing how many people complain about the hardware specs, but forget about the software. The iPad has the most important feature of all: usability.

Remember mobile internet before the iPhone? Nobody used it. Then along came the iPhone: technically nothing new: touch screens existed before, mobile browsers existed before.

But only the usability of the iPhone has made people start to use mobile internet. So much so that AT&T has a hard time keeping up.

Hardware features don’t matter if the usability isn’t there. And that’s where the iPad shines, just look at some of the video’s here: New Multi-touch Interactions on the Apple iPad. Again, it’s all about the software. Software is the key to ease of use. Apple has just made computing a lot easier.
