Now the whole world knows what the third-gen tablet from Apple Inc. has to offer to the people. Though many people were waiting anxiously for Apple to finally unveil the device at the event, many were at the same time disappointed with what was shown. Yes, the new tablet has a Retina Display, 4G LTE connection, A5X processor chip, etc. however, what people didn’t like was the name ‘the new iPad’ and that it didn’t have Siri and was thicker than the iPad 2. Though Apple has given the justification of not including Siri and why the new iPad is thicker, many people are still thinking that Apple has lost its touch after Steve Jobs left, and the company has gone back to making people set expectations that their products couldn’t beat and leave people disappointed. Maybe Apple overpromised things when it came to the new iPad? Read after the break!
As all of you know, the new iPad was unveiled just last week and with itself, it brought an amazing display feature and high connection speed, the 4G kind. However, many people can’t help but think that the way it was announced was reminiscent of how John Scully used to handle Apple, rather than the way Steve Jobs used to run it. The difference was that Scully made people come up with expectations which the product could never beat, while Steve Jobs allowed people to come up with expectations which the Apple products could pass. When Scully was in command, Apple products had problems with execution too and now many think that Tim Cook is the new John Scully.
When Apple introduced ‘Newton’ it was quite a product, given the time it was released. It was a handheld tablet which raised the bar for its competitors. However, Scully gave attention to handwriting recognition as the main feature and the product lost its charm. In the same way, dictation can be regarded as the new iPad’s handwriting recognition, which was seen in ‘Newton’. This feature will drastically lose efficiency when users will try it in a crowded place, etc. as the tablet might start dictating what other people say.
The naming and the overpromising are also what disappointed the fans of the iPad and I’ll talk about them both in part 2</strong>, in a while!
