Apple officially unveiled their new product, The Apple iPad. It will debut this April 2010 with a starting price tag of $499. A shocking price considering rumors that the iPad would be priced at around $1,000 up by some analysts.
Apple’s CEO Steve Jobs billed the iPad as “so much more intimate than a laptop and so much more capable than a smart phone.” That is because the design of iPad looks more like Apple’s iPhone but just larger in size similar to a notebook.
The iPad has a dimensions of 9.56 h x 7.47 w, half-inch thick, weighs 1.5 pounds (.68 kg) Wi-Fi model; 1.6 pounds (.73 kg) Wi-Fi + 3G model and comes with a built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity. The battery life can last 10 hours and can sit for a month on a standby without charging. There will be three different iPad models as follows: 16GB, 32GB and 64GB and will be priced at $499, $599 and $699. Additional $130 if you want the iPad to have both Wi-Fi and 3G.
