In typical Apple fashion they controll the access by leaving out SD card slots and USB ports for downloading. Of course they have a number of models with more capability for more $$$. Apple has always been closed off, unlike Microsoft/IBM. It also seems to be promoted as a toy, and not for serious business use. There are lots of professions that could utilize a compact yet capable tablet type of device, but more seem to have shortcomings that can't be tolerated in more business environments.
