Apple Unveils New iPad Tablet Computer

apple ipad 300x205 Apple Unveils New iPad Tablet ComputerThe wait is over and Apple’s highly anticipated tablet has finally been unveiled. The iPad was  revealed by Steve Jobs at a press conference in San Francisco. It is literally the missing link  between a smartphone and a laptop, and looks basically like an oversized iPhone. Its 9.7 inch  touchscreen is a beautiful thing to behold, as with all Apple products, and its diminutive size  of half an inch thick and weighing 1.5 pounds makes it a very attractive prospect indeed.

The Apple iPad acts as a web browser, e-book reader, games device, photo album, video viewer  and much more. The iPad may well be the ‘Kindle Killer’ that industry insiders have been  expecting from Apple for some time now. The unit is to go on sale in March at a price of $499  in the US, and other territories will soon find out when it will arrive in their stores and for  how much.

The basic model of the new Apple iPad has Wi-Fi and 16gb of storage, and offers ten hours of  use per battery charge. Not bad at all for something so graphics intensive! For 3G wireless,  there’s an additional $130 to pay, and models with higher storage are again more expensive.

Price aside, it is an amazing piece of equipment that it will be interesting to watch the  success of. Is the world actually in need of a device that is in-between the compact size of a  smartphone and the working dimensions of a laptop? I don’t know, but I certainly want one  already.

The Apple iPad features the same accelerometer and touchscreen capabilities as the iPhone and  the iPod Touch, but it sees the realm of touchscreen usability taken to the next level. As  ever, Apple have offered something spectacular, and which a great many people will want to try  out. Thanks to its sleek design, straightforward and intuitive UI (always a beautiful aspect of  Apple’s products) and the capabilities that it offers, I for one think that the company will  have another hit on their hands with the iPad.

  1. The Apple iPad looks fantastic. I will definitely be buying one. I am just not decided whether to get the wifi or the 3g and which size to get.
