Apple iPad, It’s officially a tablet
OK so amongst all the rumours it seems there is no smoke without Fire. A little while ago Apple announced the launch of the iPad, I mean tablet, I mean iPad!
In terms of details, what we know so far is it is a little over a centimetre thick, and weighs in a little over 1 and a half pounds. As standard it comes with a 9.7-inch touchscreen IPS LCD display, and is powered by a specially built 1GHz Apple “A4” chipset. Bulleted details below;
- 16, 32 and 64 gig sizes
- Huge 1 month standby (by which time you would have lost it!) and 10 hours battery life
- Connectivity via Bluetooth and 802.11n WiFi
- Built in speaker and microphone
- Accelerometer as expected
You can also run iPhone apps straight from the box, though they will be with limited pixels, though developers can already update their apps to the new larger screen size.
10 years in development, maybe this is 5 years to late? We will see!
