5 Reasons Against

Not 3G Compatible

The Apple iPad is not 3G compatible, although keep in mind that most of the other tablet computers that were launched more than two years ago are also not 3G compatible.

Chart Edit

Not 4G Compatible

Most similar spec tablets that have been around for more than two years are not 4G compatible. The Apple iPad is no exception to this as it too is not 4G compatible.

If you would prefer a tablet computer that is 4G compatible then you might also want to look at the Samsung SM-T360 Galaxy Tab Active which is also higher rated.

Only 2.1 Bluetooth Version

The Apple iPad supports a 2.1 Bluetooth version which is newer than the 4 Bluetooth version supported by most tablet computers that were released around the same time as it.

Tablet computers that have been around for a comparable time to the iPad have processor clock speeds of between 1GHz and 2.3GHz. When compared to other tablet computers that are a comparable age to the iPad that we have assessed, the Apple iPad's processor clock speed of only 1 gigahertz is one of the slowest.

If this tablet processor clock speed is too slow for you then you might also want to look at the Samsung SM-T360 Galaxy Tab Active (1.2GHz) which also has a higher rating.
