iPad Wireless Issues

It appears that the iPad has wireless issues.

Several Americans have reported intermittent wireless connection failures, that people believe is caused by the device’s WI-FI antenna, which is located behind the apple logo.

This issue causes some users to need to enter their passwords, repetitively. And some have had difficulties connecting to certain routers, which has resulted in this support document by Apple.

This along with the lack of support for Flash has made me think twice about purchasing this device, which will be released in Canada later this month.

I don’t read e-books so I haven’t purchased a Kindle or the new Kobo ereader (which is available for pre-order at chapters.indigo.ca). But I have been eying the Archos 9 PC Tablet and JooJoo, which can view Flash.

The competition will be fierce because HP, Acerand Asus will also be releasing tablets soon.
