For nearly a decade the tech world was waiting for Apple to introduce this. Today Apple had a conference where they finally introduced the Apple iPad to the public. The iPad is a tablet computer that measures 1/2 inches, weighs 1.5 pounds and is capable of browsing the web, playing videos, reading digital books and more. It features a 9.7 inch capacitive touchscreen IPS LCD display, 1GHz Apple A4 chip, 802.11n, Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR, 30-pin connector, speaker, microphone, accelerometer and a compass. Starting at $499 and going all the way up to $799 this is definitely a must.
The iPad will be to Macbook as Netbook is to PC – only you still type on your laptop at your desk. With the iPad you just relax. The iPad follows it’s counterparts – iPhone and Touch – with a multi-touch interface. With the iPad’s large screen you just see more of the Web as your surfing it. Apple made the iPad’s interface to be as natural and fitting to our lifestyles you don’t even have to think about doing something. You just DO! However, the iPad doesn’t have any USB ports – WHATTTTTTTTTTT!!!
I wonder if you can put Adobe software’s on the iPad? How does this effect the print industry – remaining newspapers & magazines?
