My product review on Apple new iPad tablet

Apple finally unveiled the much anticipate iPad tablet. This new gadget is described as revolutionary by Apple's CEO Steve Jobs. iPad tablet, bigger than iPhone, comes with WiFi connectivity, is a viable alternative to a netbook.

The iPad features a 9.7-inch, full capacitive multi-touch IPS display, weighs 1.5 pounds and measures 0.5 inches thick — thinner and lighter than any netbook, may look attractive. However, the iPad tablet is missing several key features.

The one big downside to the browser was that it does not support Adobe Flash, which means that video on many sites like Hulu will not work. Apple representatives said the Flash-capability is not a need since the Web is moving to HTML 5.0, but that's a slow transition, if it happens.

Another regrettable missing feature is iPad tablet's incapability to support multitasking. Without multitasking, no two or more applications are allowed to run concurrently. That is dinosaur era isn't it?

Given tablet tagged together with the name of the new gadget, I am expecting a stylus pen, but it is missing. This comes with little surprise since Job is a hatter of stylus.
