Is the iPad 2 Holding Back?
An article from cnn.com takes at what the iPad 2 is lacking, and if Apple left these features out on purpose. The main features that the article says are missing from the iPad 2 are a memory boost, retina display, cloud sync, and stereo speakers. If you can remember back to last year the original iPad didn't have a camera when most people thought that the iPad 1 should of had a camera. Was apple holding back? I think they were, and they are with the new iPad. I'm sure that there are a number of features that the Apple could put on the iPad 2 that they haven't yet. I think that that is a very smart business decision. Apple is the best company around at creating a new product that is very appealing, but leaving out just enough to keep you coming back for more. They do the same thing with the iPhone's. Everyone still bought iPhones even though they didn't have video chat on them, and then when the Iphone 4 came out with Facetime it was a huge hit, and increased the popularity of the iPhone. Apple is always thinking ahead. They are always trying to figure out a way to increase the demand of their next product. They leave out certain small features to increase the demand for next year's product. Apple always seems to be ahead of everyone else in the technology world. They're always thinking ahead, and that's part of the reason why Apple is one of the most successful companies in the World.
