It’s finally out! The long-awaited Apple tablet has been unveiled today, and it looks like a giant iPhone.
- A 9.7-inch multitouch screen (resolution: 1024 x 768)
- A 1 GHz A4 Apple-made processor
- Wi-Fi / 3G connectivity
- Bluetooth 2.1
- A Mic
- Battery Life: 10 hours of constant use, 1 month in standby mode
- 16 GB + WIFI: $499
- 32 GB + WIFI: $599
- 64 GB + WIFI: $699
- 16 GB + WIFI + 3G: $629
- 32 GB + WIFI + 3G: $729
- 64 GB + WIFI + 3G: $829
Exactly like the iPhone, the device reacts to how it is being held, so if you turn it up or sideway, it switches the display either in portrait or landscape mode.
It has an onscreen keyboard, just like Apple’s phone, but much, much bigger. This will definitely make typing easier than on an iPhone, which is a real pain for those not used to typing on a small screen.
The Wi-Fi version of the iPad will be available worldwide in exactly 60 days. If you want to get the one that supports 3G connectivity, you’ll have to wait another 30 extra days.
So, will you guys rush to the nearest Apple store when the iPad comes out, or will you wait for the second generation of the device to be released before making the decision of purchasing one or not?
