It's interesting. We have seen a recent splatter of news relating to the iPad with sites such as EnGadget and MacRumors of missing features. Personally, I highly believe that the iPad Steve showed us at the event last week will not be the finalized product. We all know that the iPad has yet to be signed off by FCC, to which prevents us from pre-ordering the device. But is this the real reason? My thoughts are lead to believe that the current 3.2 iPhone software released in the SDK are a basic guide for developers, to get to know how the device actually works to create apps that suite their business. With the launch of the device coming towards the end of March, a lot of people are speculating that this will not be the actual software used. 4.0 maybe launched with the iPad, thus giving features that we have not yet seen (and will hopefully be launched as an iPhone software update to current users). With recent patent applications from Apple, hot corners could be used to give more of a professional approach to the uses that customers are wanting, such as jumping between applications (multi-tasking), printing of documents (with appropriate WiFi enabled printers), transferring multiple material from one app to another (say a couple of pictures from the Internet to a word document with ease) or a basic file system that houses all of our wants and needs. Pictures have been spread around the Internet with a camera embodied into the bezel, but no word of an iSight camera at the conference. Perhaps this will be a surprise to when the device is actually ready to be shipped. Surly Apple know a lot of people wouldn't buy the device without a camera, it's just PERFECT for video conferencing (and I'm not talking about a 5MP camera with flash, that will be for future versions of the iPhone). We have also seen that in the 3.2 SDK software that it supports video conferencing, etc... Coming back to the FCC approval comment, as well as this being true, this could also be an slight coverup for the fact that Apple have not yet finalized the product. We have seen changes before that have been shown on events, to which are changed when they initially launch (iTV - AppleTV), and I'm not saying they are likely to change the name of the iPad, I highly doubt that. Think about it, they would also not let pre-orders take place if they are advertising a product that is going to dramatically change when it is actually ready for shipment, that would be a little wrong don't you think? Apple might be just creating hype around the device and giving customers an BASIC overall view of what it can do. You never know, Apple could be doing a little market research to peoples comments around the iPad at the moment, it only takes a few software changes to do most things. All I'm saying, people are slating the product before it is actually ready for shipping... So fingers crossed, give it time, and Apple may surprise you. After-all Steve DID hint (towards the end of the event) in coming back in the next couple of months... Maybe to show the final product? What are your thoughts?
