After Apple received complaints from its users about iPad’s WiFi connectivity, they released suggestions to fix the issue such as turning off dual band mode on the router, but it seems the problem still occurs.

Apple is now working on a software update which, they say, it’s going to fix the problem.

Chinese iPad Clone Features Sliding Keyboard


With the large number of iPad clones launched, or on their way, Chinese manufacturer, Shenzen, decided to come up with something that would make its tablet PC stand out.

This particular prototype looks a lot like the iPad, but hides something completely unexpected, a sliding keyboard, similar to that of the Nokia N97.  Shenzen’s little gimmick is virtually an iPad laptop, similar to what you’d get using the iPadDock.

Little else is known about this upcoming Shenzen tablet PC, other than that it will feature a 10 inch display, and will be powered by an Atom N450 processor. No word about the launch date, either, but knowing the Chinese, this baby will hit the shelves in record time.


iDock XL Transforms Your iPhone into an iPad

iDock-XL-iPadCan’t afford to get even the cheapest iPad model, at $499? No worries,all you need is your trusty old iPhone, and the iDock XL.

Many have argued that the iPad is just a blown-up version  of the iPhone, so someone finally came up with an idea to change the multimedia phone into the desired tablet PC. That’s how the iDock XL was “born.”

Sure, it doesn’t look the part, and if your iPhone isn’t jailbroken, you’ll only be able to see video files, due to the restrictions put in place, by Apple. But if your iPhone is jailbroken, you practically have a slightly oversized version of the Apple iPad.

The iDock XL costs only $230, considerably cheaper than the iPad, but the fact that the display isn’t touchscreen (you have to use the iPad’s touchscreen),and the awkward look make the Apple iPad a much better choice.

Check the iDock in action, after the break.
