(The name needs some work, Steve Jobs!)
Today, Apple unveiled it's newest technological creation that is sure to be in the hands of every hipster Mac lover within moments of its availability.
The new device fills the void between the iPhone and laptop, with the design of the iPhone, but the functionality of a handheld computer. Insiders at the demonstration tweeted out the stats about the new device and quoted CEO Steve Jobs as he explained all it's features.
The 9.7 inch screen device will be available in 16GB and 64 GB versions, making it ideal to watch video, read newspapers and browse photos on. The more "intimate" device, as Jobs describes it, is a "dream" to type on with full-size touch-screen keyboard, similar to the iPhone interface. The Apple iPad will have 10 hours of battery life and also have Wi-Fi capability, but no mobile contract announced as of yet.
Those fans of their beloved Apps will be happy to know that all their existing Apps are easily transferable to the iPad and many more exciting ones are on the way to be fully enjoyed on the bigger screen. And for e-readers, The New York Times has already signed on with Apple to create exclusive content, including articles with a newspaper look and play-in-page video.
They also announced the iBook Store, a digital bookstore for the new Apple iPad, which has already partnered with five major book publishers: Penguin, Macmillan, Simon & Schuster, Harper Collins and Hachette.
This thing is going to be HUGE!
