Re: Just posted: Apple iPad 2: Tool or Toy?

Obviously, a toy.
Let me explain:

  • 132 PPI pixel density.

  • Starts at 16 GB storage.

  • Does not work with a Wacom pen (or similar); is capacitative-input only!

  • Undefined display profile; shows colours very differently than a (calibrated) desktop.

Let me clarify for the uninitiated. The following is required for it to be seriously considered for proper work:

  • Must be minimum of 300 PPI or more pixel density.

  • 16 GB! That's quite the joke! 128 GB at the very, very minimum at this point! In two-three years, 500 GB minimum would do. Not 16!

  • Capacitative touchscreen technology is in most respects excellent! But for serious work it will never suffice. A dual-input (capacitative touch and Wacom pen) would suffice very well for photographers' needs - both professional and personal. Nothing less will.
