This might sound familiar to many Apple tablet users but it actually happens quite often lately. Due to a planned economic shortage in the manufacturing process of the iPad 2 display multi-touch screen displays the known worldwide tablet manufacturer received numerous complaints about light-bleeding issues.
Unfortunately, the guarantee excerpts don’t cover this but many retailer offer any customer the opportunity to change the display for free. But the main problems appear when the iPad has not been purchased from an authorized Apple retailer or reseller. Even if the malfunction of the display is a well known one and many people already returned their tablet devices to their respective retailers, Apple’s CEO, the newly instituted Timothy Cook said that this is not such a big issue as the third iPad generation was announced for launch in the beginning of the next years’ summer.
This means that Steve Jobs principles have been neglected and the price value even topped by this device at the time of its launch now capsized under its own weight and expected untended promises.Let’s just hope that the third iPad generation will bring a whole new range of features because Apple is just a witness of its own dethroning by the many devices manufactured and sold by the competition such as the Asus EEE Transformer that not only offers a powerful tablet and an USB port and Flash support ( things that the Apple iPad lacks even in its second generation ) but also a very powerful notebook when needed so the business segment of the market is also covered.
In addition, the Asus EEE Transformer offers the docking station that is cheap and is the only thing that you need to literally transform your versatile tablet into a notebook in just one simple step. What this docking station offers is a full featured keyboard that makes typing and any sort on dedicated button interaction feel just like on a real similar laptop.
However, even with these in mind and the small comparison of the competition to the iPad, the company still has success in selling the device and managing to boast sales even if it has so many issues. I personally don’t mind using either a laptop on which I’m writing now or a tablet but typing on a tablet that has light bleeding is quite annoying as you might yourself experience if you buy one. The statistics say that about 40 % of the iPad 2 produced suffer this malfunction and there is nothing that you can do about that.
