Good device, but a critical part missing!Posted
I have been only using Android tablets before, but due to the need of using an app that was only available on iOS, I decided to jump back with Apple and try again. First off, the size and feel of the device is great, simplicity and speed excellent. Good execution there. I even started to enjoy the Apple ecosystem again. Now the bad part for me. Every tablet I have purchased prior were all Wi-Fi only, and all had a GPS receiver. I therefore never thought twice about it, and didn't dwell enough on the specs of this device. I decided on the wifi only as I always tether with my phone, and it is enough to go through the day. But Apple decided to NOT put a GPS receiver on the wifi only device. It only exists on the Cellular+wifi unit. My app is therefore useless, as it requires a GPS signal to work. I do not need cellular on my tablets and therefore do not want to be forced to pay for that unnecessary extra. I know it is my fault for not having seen this before I purchased the device, but this is one of the reasons why I stay away from Apple products. Why would you have such a portable device without a reliable location receiver is beyond me. It is a useless device if you need to travel a lot. Because of this and the fact I realized this past my return time, I am stuck with a neat paperweight. This was my last foray in the Apple grove, and I wish it would have had a different outcome.
No, I would not recommend this to a friend
