Apple’s iPad

February 11, 2010

On 27th Jan 2010 Apple unveiled tablet PC called iPad. The look and design of iPad is indeed very sleek. The 9.7 inch display, full touch features, virtual keyboard, e-reader, 10 hours battery etc. are some of the features that iPad offers. The new feature is the photo turns as you turn the tablet. So you can view it both horizontally or diagonally. It’s best for web surfing, e-reading, photo and movie viewing. Despite loving this gadget my first reaction was that it looked like a bigger version of iPod Touch. Though of course, iPad offers several new and exciting features that iPod Touch doesn’t have.

The starting price of iPad is 499$ which is quite affordable. For the introduction of iPad check out this video! For the features click here!

And yes, there was this pretty ‘intimate’ iPad spoof that floated all over the net hours before it’s release. The more they make fun of this product the more people will buy it, I assure you!

I would also like to share what Paulo Coelho said on the release of iPad: The world is in trouble when we see that iPad is more important than iRaq (Iraq). That’s his view which of course is true and it makes one believe that we live in the materialistic world where all we care about what pleases us. So it is all about ‘I’.

Everything apart, the fact is that iPad got me excited at least for the initial few hours. I don’t know if I’ll ever use it but I know one thing for sure that Apple products are very innovative, stylish and user friendly.

      Many people are missing the camera in it. That comes handy for video-call…

    499$, that’s not correct price, because it’s excluding taxes etc, the real price of IPAD most probably would be 1300$, actually that’s what happened to me when i saw on the apple web, IPhone just 300$ which was without taxes etc, though here it was like 2400 Riyals 🙂

      That’s the starting price. If one goes for the 32 GB + taxes then of course it’s a lot 😀

    Mr Paulo Coelho has a lot to say on a lot of things. I have often noticed that.

      He’s the philosopher/intellectual of our times!
