I hope there's a better antenna in the iPad 2.

    It's been a year.

    It seems no matter where I go, I can be standing next to an iphone that gets 5 bars, and my iPad gets two or three.
    The average skype call lasts 3-4 minutes before going red & dropping out.
    Watching movies on Netflix looks like this:

    I thought netflix adjusted it's data to your connection...

    I don't have an iPad but on my iphone4 netflix over 3g looks waaaaay better than that.

    for 15fps 150x200 video whose audio already dropped out?

    About as much as a skype call apparently.

    Which is too much for an ipad.


    ...but not too much for the iPhones antenna.

    Hope it shows at least as good as it does on the iphone4.

    Need something for those slow days
