Steve Jobs Introduces the Apple iPad (by GingerKiD)

Posted by Ms. Aivee on January 28, 2010

Well Apple has done it again first the iPod, then iPod photo then one two skip a few we now have the iPad! The name suits this puppy. While initially Apple said they wouldnt jump into the Netbook market, they have responded with the big brother to the iPhone and the smaller version of a Mac Book.

The iPad has a 9.7-inch touch screen, is a half-inch thick, weighs 1.5 pounds and comes with 16, 32 or 64 gigabytes of flash memory storage. The basic iPad models will cost $499, $599 and $699, depending on the storage size.

All models have Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity built in. Jobs said the device has a battery that lasts 10 hours and can sit for a month on standby without needing a charge.

Apple will also sell a version with pay-as-you-go data plans from AT&T in the U.S. Two tiers of data plan will be available without contracts: $14.99 per month for 250 megabytes of data, or $29.99 for unlimited data usage.

Those 3G models will cost more — $629, $729 and $829, depending on the amount of memory. The Wi-Fi only version will be available worldwide in March, and the 3G version in April. International cellular data details have not yet been announced.

Apple had kept its “latest creation” tightly under wraps until Wednesday’s unveiling, though many analysts had correctly speculated that it would be a one-piece tablet computer with a big touch screen, larger than an iPhone but smaller than a laptop.

It remains to be seen when these will hit the streets or how popular they will be. But im sure before you know it, these will be as common as an iPhone.
