Apple Launches iPad Tablet

Apple, Inc. introduced iPad (, a tablet device for browsing the web, reading and sending email, enjoying photos, watching videos, playing games, reading ebooks, etc. Its high-resolution multitouch display lets you interact with content-including 12 innovative new apps designed especially for iPad and almost all of the 140,000 apps available on the App Store. At just 0.5" thick and 1.5 lbs., iPad is thinner and lighter than any laptop or notebook. Wi-Fi models of iPad will be available in March starting at $499; 3G models will ship in April.

The iPad has a high-resolution, 9.7" LED-backlit, IPS display that the company says is remarkably crisp and vivid. Because it uses a display technology called IPS (in-plane switching), it has a wide, 178° viewing angle. So you can hold it almost any way you want and still get a brilliant picture with excellent color and contrast. The lithium polymer battery technology will provide use for up to 10 hours on a single charge. iPad is available with a choice of 16GB, 32GB, or 64GB flash storage.

With built-in 802.11n, iPad can take advantage of the fastest Wi-Fi networks. iPad also comes with Bluetooth 2.1 with EDR (enhanced data rate), which lets you connect to devices such as wireless headphones or the Apple wireless keyboard. iPad will also be available in a 3G model, with data speeds up to 7.2Mbps. The iPad with Wi-Fi plus 3G and 64GB will cost $829. The 3G data plan will be sold separately.
