San Fransisco, Apple's new product which claims to revolutionize the computing industry is a 0.5-inches thin tablet called the iPad. It weighs 1.5 pounds. As Steve Jobs says "It's thinner and lighter than any netbook." The screen is a 9.7-inch IPS display.
A big surprise for everbody in the industry is that the iPad is powered by an Apple made "custom silicon". The chip is called the A4. It is 1GHz chip. The iPad comes with a flash storage capacity of 16, 32, and 64 GB.
The tablet has the latest wireless 802.11n card, and Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR. It also has the most speculated features such as the accelerometer, compass, speaker, mic and dock connector. The iPad doesn't have a camera though.
One good thing we the iPad has is that Apple has been able to achieve 10 hours of battery life for the device. Steve adds "In addition to this battery life, it's got a month of standby life. It's remarkable."
As the iPhone changed how touch screens were used, the iPad offer a more impressive experience. "We built the iPad to run virtually every one of these apps unmodified right out of the box. We can do that in two ways - do it with pixel for pixel accuracy in a black box, or we can pixed-double and run them in full-screen. This is really cool."
Apple is also launching the SDK today for the developers to develop applications. The SDK is being launched along with the iPad tools. "If the developer takes the time, they can also take full advantage of the large touchscreen display in the iPad. We did that with our own internal apps, and we expect developers will want to do that too."
