I did a whole article for iProspector about the iPad with sim card. It took me about 5 minutes to do, but it was an interesting read. The fact is, I never really liked my old sim card. I don’t even like my current sim card. I have to replace it maybe once every two years, which is okay, but it’s just not a good experience.
This iPad with sim card is a great move by Apple and a great addition to people who like the old sim cards, but they’re still not a good experience for anyone who never had or never wanted a sim card. I still get the feeling that my sim card was a gift from the gods.
Apple is trying to make it easier for people to buy a new device every year so they can buy a new device and just use it all the time. Because if that were true, every time you bought a new device you would need to buy a new sim card.
I can understand how apple wants to make things easier for people who like the old sim cards, but for anyone who doesn’t like the old sim cards, the new sim card is still not a good experience. You still have to do all the steps to make it work before you can use it. The only time I really got used to the new sim card was when I got an ipad (which I use to play games), and I still think its a bit of a pain.
I think the problem is that it’s so expensive that no one can actually afford the sim card. And although I understand that apple is doing this because they want to increase the number of people on their network who can use their new ipads, it still doesn’t make sense to me why anyone would want to buy a new sim card for the ipad. It just seems like a waste of money.
Also, a sim card is generally more expensive than an actual iPad, so the same argument about why someone would buy an iPad over a sim card would apply to the ipad. But in this case, it doesn’t really matter because it still costs less than the iPad.
I hope nobody is buying a new sim card because they think they will get a new ipad with their sim card. But even if that is the case, it doesnt make a lot of sense since the ipad already has a sim card. Just like the iPad doesnt really matter because it has already got a sim card, neither does the ipad.
I don’t want to be too harsh, but it doesn’t make sense to buy an ipad and then a sim card. They are two distinct products, and the idea that one is somehow better than the other is just silly. It also doesn’t make a lot of sense in the same way that a person would buy a PC and then a laptop, which is why the iPad is better for gaming.
Well, if you just want a computer with a sim card, you can get a sim card (in fact its called a USB SIM) and you can buy a computer and a USB SIM (and the two are almost exactly the same). If you’re after a computer (which we all are) you can get a computer (which we are) and a USB SIM (which is just as good). If you just want a SIM card, a SIM card is what you want.
If you have a problem with this, then you have a problem with the fact that the iPad is becoming the PC of the smart phone world. The iPad is a phone. Its not a computer. If you need a computer, buy a PC and get a USB SIM.
