- Apple unveils the iPad: Steve Jobs and the iPad of hope | The Economist – The new iPad has important limitations, which critics were quick to point out. It does not have a camera or a phone and users cannot run multiple applications on it at the same time. But Apple should be able to correct such flaws in due course.
