By making a few minor practical improvements, Apple will attract even greater consumer interest in its iPad tablet, it has been suggested.

Commenting after Retrevo Pulse reported a drop in consumer interest following the initial launch of the device, Jeremy Horwitz, editor-in-chief of iLounge, claimed that some people need more convincing as to its appeal.

He stated: "There are two camps of people right now: half see the iPad as possessing tremendous potential and a nice feature set, and others compare it in price and features to PC netbooks.

"Those in the latter camp believe that it needs more storage capacity, a video camera, or some killer applications before it is worth buying."

The availability of mobile broadband services on the device is also likely to encourage greater uptake over the coming months.

Andrew Harrison, Chief Executive of TalkTalk's parent company Carphone Warehouse, recently told TechRadar that the broadband provider was interested in offering web services through the iPad.
