Millions of words have been published in the network on the ubiquitous iPad and other variant of Tablet PC devices, most of them is providing reviews or trying to sell you something but this article is not about to try to sell you anything or even suggest how mobile devices are tablet "cool". Far from it.

For those of us who have an iPad or other such device or are considering one of the many new participants or the mobile device space competitive Tablet PC , probably be loves the idea and enjoy the advantages for navigation. However, after thousands of hours of use, there is a growing group of dissent and frustration about the limitations of these devices.

For example, in its current state, you cannot possibly considered any of the iPad devices as replacements to the team. If you do any significant work computer where sheets of Excel spreadsheets, Notepad, Word or other applications of data are used and you must absolutely have a track pad with left and right buttons or a mouse. There is no possibility of "right click" with the iPad , or you can switch between the screens and applications - that is one important fall means last program has to close to open a new. Something that we hope that it will address the new iPad .

Do addition, sure that they have a neat on screen keyboard but they have attempted to use for any extended period? Never mind! Prior to time the finger "pointing" will begin to resemble a chicken arthritic leg and you will receive a sore arm to keep your hand aloft and moving as a mechanical robot arm insane in a car factory.

Some please can tell me what no Flash player with Apple? (ok - really everyone probably knows the answer, which was being rhetorical) One of the biggest problems of iPad and it afflicts all devices based on iOS platform are that there is a lack of support for the most important web applications possible: Adobe Flash. While there are thousands of Web sites that have content that you can simply do not see the iPad !. Apple must be attentive as the new Viewsonic G -Tablet PC supports native Flash.

My last point (in my opinion) sealed the fate of the current Tablet PCs to not be able to replace a laptop or PC is the inability to download much of the free software available for so many things, for example: you use a Google toolbar? Yes. Do you have free apps in the team for things like weather alerts? Are you using industry tools that require software updates in your system?

So in short, surely there are many problems now family iPad and some of them will still be present in the new products of competitors. Does it would be impossible for many of us to replace our computers with pills and although new pills USB drives to connect to external such as printers and mice etc. things - really, how many of us would like to? Computers and laptops are part of our way of life and pills and change our habits of mobile computing, are more likely to see them simply to communicate online, games and navigation. They pose the greatest threat to the mobile industry.
