I am sure you have heard all the buzz about the new Ipad that Apple has released. The iPad has a 9.7-inch touch screen, is a half-inch thick, weighs 1.5 pounds and comes with 16, 32 or 64 gigabytes of flash memory storage. It comes with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity built in.
It seems to be the next generation of iphone. I give kudos to apple for introducing the iphone and ipod first, getting consumers accustom to using the interactive touch functionality. It now only makes sense to come out with a hybrid like the ipad. If you don’t like to lug around a bulky laptop or hate using a small device like the iphone, the ipad is just the ticket. This device not only has the functionality of a phone, laptop and computer but as also can be used by all walks of life including professionals, students and the general public.
Can you believe the price point!? Starting out at $499! The basic iPad models will cost $499, $599 and $699, depending on the storage size. Those 3G (for the phone) iPad models will cost more — $629, $729 and $829, depending on the amount of memory — and will be out in April.
We will probably wait to purchase the second generation model to allow them to work out all the hardware and software bugs. Although Apple always seems to offer very stable, secure products from the onset. Being a business professional, the the ipad will be a great compliment to our day to day business.
Look forward to the ipad being available to the public in March 2010!
