It's finally here. At their event in San Francisco, Apple has officially announced their tablet computer, which they're calling the iPad. Fully customizable, and better than a smartphone or a laptop at browsing, reading e-books, and a "great maps application with support from Google[...]." We're watching for more specs and software information right now, but the general idea is that the device is better than a netbook at just about everything!
Yet another Apple-driven revolution: go!
- 9.7" IPS screen
- 1/2" thick (or thin)
- 10 hours of battery life
- "Shut the iPad down, come back in a month and it still has a charge"
- 16-64 Gigabytes of flash storage
- Accelerometer and compass
- Speaker, mic
- Dock connector
- It can run all iPhone apps, unmodified, out of the box
