    Usually notebooks have SD reader, but for Ipad , some how it should function like a handphone where , handphones can add in SD cards too, or mini SD.

    that said, it is of course not common.

    much too mar fun, but i thought apple does pride itself on being groundbreaking. perhaps it might be too much to ask for usb ports, etc, to be stuffed into that package.

    Apple mobile products (iPod, iPhone and iPad) were never meant to be I/O devices to begin with, due to their strict piracy stance. They were made with connectivity in mind, which brings out the best in their products (App store, iTunes store, iBooks, etc). Hence they don't see the need to have I/O ports for the purpose of file transfers when iTunes sync fulfills all their needs.

    Having said that, I really don't want to go down this slippery slope of Apple vs anything else.

    I found out that an iPad with a cam connector can preview raw files from a DSLR.

    I leave all forumnites here to make your own conclusions if that is an interesting point, or worthless.

    Cheers.

    Btw, there is one possible problem that I would like to highlight.
    Apple products have never been opened friendly. So in a case where your battery is gone case or something spoils in the IPad. When you send it back for warrenty, they replace a new IPad for you. Good in a sense that you get a good new IPad, but you might lose precious data. So best suggest to back it up. It happens to my friend IPod, where he get a new IPod but all his songs are gone when his IPod battery is spoiled.

    Where by PC and Notebooks, you can swap the parts etc.

    a number of you have taken it upon yourself to be the 'criticizer-in-chief' of CS on just about everything. personally, i don't care if you are some high-flying schmuck of a photographer. that doesn't give you the right to diss other people who are genuinely contributing knowledge for one and all.

    so, i will gently remind one and all again, be nice. if you have nothing good & constructive to say, look away.

    actually, one of the reasons i am buying the gen 1 iPad instead of waiting for a more mature product, is that it DOES NOT have any SD/mini SD slot and DOES NOT have any camera ...

    ... so it's Army Camp friendly :P cam-less 3g devices getting harder to find in market; having iPad will make 2 weeks reservist easier to tahan

    Dude, nobody ever said you cannot bring in a device without a memory card slot, you just cannot bring in thumbdrives, memory cards etc. But then your device itself can store data so it kind of defeat the purpose or violate the guidelines anyway.

    Apple fanboy test:

    1. You always get the latest apple poduct whenever affordable.
    2. You just love apple.
    3. Even if the product isn't good in hardware spec or no pratical use to you, you still love it and try to find use for it to satisfy you emptyness
    4. You enjoy promoting the products to others like friends, relative and internet mates.
    5. A 3 year old design still looks in style to you.
    6. You never thought of yourself as a market for apple, but rather as apple makes "the best" product you can get.

    Ok enough with the smart aleck comments already. Its getting old.

    BTW, I still think it is a hassle carrying two bulky items to a photoshoot. Been there done that. Unless I have an assistant, I wouldn't even think twice about using the iPad to preview my photos. However, thanks to TS for sharing the information. Do you know that you could also use a mouse with the iPad?

    I might be getting the iPad certainly not for previewing images, most probably to 'show-off' my portfolio to my potential clients.

    I like this... it's been a hassle for me after an outdoor client shoot to look for a coffee shop, setup my laptop, load the photos, then preview photos for client.

    Although I'm still not sure if I'll buy an Ipad for this... but if I did, this would be one of the big reasons. Plus, it's a good way to show off your portfolio on client meetings.

    Hmm, somewhat agreed on the hassle free of showing ur pics to ur client after a shot is a big plus factor, can't really justified its hefty price tag apart for this.

    Nonetheless, its still one cool gadget to possess..
