Verizon have gone one step ahead of Apple and released their own iPad 2 commercial, showing off their fast 3G network. The TV commercial shows the iPad 2’s ability to quickly connect to Verizon’s 3G network by giving examples of the Twitter app and Apple’s iBooks. Check them out in the video below:
Comments like “Not spending $500 on something I cant even use. Its going back tomorrow” are already doing the rounds in Apple’s forum.
Just a day after the Apple iPad reached consumers, the complaints are already soaring in. The main reason attracting consumer anger: a very weak, and sometimes even NO, WiFi signal detected by the iPad.
So, on one hand Apple is celebrating selling 3,00,000 iPads on the first day, on the other hand it is facing some serious consumer ire.
According to the complaints doing the rounds all over the internet (and even on Apple’s support forums), the iPad’s WiFi connectivity is not up to the mark. It is either showing a very weak signal or no signal at all. And what is more worrying for Apple is that other devices are doing pretty fine in that range in the consumer’s place.
“Having this issue with my iPad as well. It’s dropping down to one bar in a part of the house the most other devices, including my MBP (Mac Book Pro) and my iPhone, get full service” said one of the unhappy lot.
Apple has neither released any statement regarding this fault as yet, nor has it offered any solution.
To sum up, with already much ado about no flash on the iPad, this WiFi issue will certainly not help Apple’s cause to win over the anti-iPad group. In fact, they might even risk losing their current users. All’s not well for the Cupertino giant at the moment. We’ll keep you updated as things break out.
