After months of rumors & speculation, Steve Jobs at least has officially unveiled the Apple Tablet, called the Apple iPad. The Apple iPad is a 9.7-inch tablet computer that combines the gap between smartphones and laptop computers, but with the processing power and software capability that netbook computers don’t offer. “Netbooks are just cheap laptops,” Apple’s Chief Steve Jobs explained when debuting the Apple iPad. “The iPad, however, is something entirely different, ” he added.
The Apple iPad will feature a 9.7-inch full capacitive multi-touch display, the 1GHz Apple A4 processor, up to 64GB of flash storage and up to a month of standby battery life. On the software side, the Apple iPad will run its own OS, including all the mobile functionality a user could desire. Email, web browsing, gaming, ebooks and more are all a part of this device. The Apple iPad will start at $499 with 3G connectivity costing $130 more per unit. [via Apple]
