So finally Steve Jobs let the cat out of the bag when he revealed the much anticipated Apple tablet, christened iPad. I am sorry, actually it's the Apple iPad (it's an Apple product so lets give it some respect). It would be available this April.
The iPad would be available in three different models: 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB, priced at $499, $599, and $699, respectively. Add on another $130 if you want a device with both WiFi and 3G. As for service, the device comes WiFi ready, but there are also two 3G plans being offered through AT&T: one includes up to 250MB of data per month for $14.99, and the other is an unlimited plan for $29.99. Both include free usage of AT&T WiFi hotspots. There’s no contract to sign — you can cancel any time you want.
The technical specs for the iPad are an Apple A4 1GHz chip, 16 – 64 GB of Flash storage, Bluetooth 2.1, 802.11n, 10 hours of battery life, 9.7 inch IPS LED backlit LCD, Accelerometer and Compass, 3G UMTS/HSPDA and GSM/EDGE data (optional), Assisted GPS and Digital Compass (3G version only), 3.5mm headphone jack, VGA out support or AV out via dock connector and converter cable, Speaker, microphone and 30-pin connector and full multi-touch support.
The iPad can be held in any direction you want. It looks like a giant iPod. It has a virtual keyboard. It has Google Maps, and of course is web-enabled. It’s lightning fast. YouTube can be watched in HD. The Demo of Star Trek was pretty impressive, but it’s not widescreen, though. You slide to unlock. The music player looks like a new version of iTunes. It also contains the Software iBook, iWork etc.
The accessories includes Keyboard dock, and Protective case.
So do let me know if you are planning to buy an iPad. And if you are then don't forget to let me know how well it's working.
