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

To me, this review seems to make it quite clear that this is not suited for photography work. It should have had a (world standard) SD card slot, and a (world standard) USB host port to allow fast connection of millions of photographic devices. It has no VGA output, so can't connect to a vast number of conference / meeting room projectors either. And you even need an adaptor to use the HDMI output. Strangely, the review doesn't seem to compare the iPad2's price with an ordinary Windows 7 notebook, which has all the ports and all the power needed for serious photographic work. Unfortunately, if it is indeed a toy, it will be a great disappointment for children, since most children's websites are loaded with Flash.
