Before the first iPad made its debut we wondered how Apple would increase the size of the interface to make use of all the space on the screen.

The low-power GPU is also sadly lacking, even for the price point, and while we've long given up on looking for expandable storage or a removable battery on these devices, 16GB of storage isn't enough for the plethora of large apps and HD content we're interested in downloading onto this device.
