I cant believe that they continue to refuse to put a USB host on the IPAD, all the android tablets are getting USB host functionality and apple in their infinte arrogance continue to cripple on of the biggest potentials of the platform. I can see this as the turning point where Android start to hand apple their Arses.
one of the main reasons I want to get a tablet is for traveling so i can take a hard drive and backup photos to the drive, with the new IPAD this is still impossible. I prefer the apple iOS interface though and really dont want to go to android...
Nothing can meet the specs for the screen size.
It's got a kick ass screen, a higher resolution than most HDTVs, a CPU/GPU more powerful than game consoles on the market.
It's got BT 4.0, and wifin - with the option of possibly doing dual channel 801.11n.
You can already get a SDHC card reader and you can also get CF readers.
The funnel is the gatekeeper of the 30 pin connector, which means the manufacturers need to go through the Made for iOS system.
