Bill Gates criticises iPad

Bill Gates has given his opinion in Apple’s iPad, saying that he still thinks that a netbook offers better functionality.

Speaking to BNet, he said: “You know, I’m a big believer in touch and digital reading, but I still think that some mixture of voice, the pen and a real keyboard – in other words a netbook – will be the mainstream on that.

“So, it’s not like I sit there and feel the same way I did with iPhone where I say, ‘Oh my God, Microsoft didn’t aim high enough.’ It’s a nice reader, but there’s nothing on the iPad I look at and say, ‘Oh, I wish Microsoft had done it.’”

It has been noted, however, that this is almost exactly what he said about the iPod, before going on to launch the Zune.
