The New Apple iPad
Firstly, let me state that I adore Apple products…in fact, I’ve owned numerous iPods, I would die without my Macbook, and I keep my iPhone with me at all times. I think the company is innovative and their devotion to aesthetic quality and appeal are amazing. That being said though, I’m also enough of a fan to know that Apple is not perfect. Nothing is more apparent (in my opinion) of this that the new Apple product that was revealed today, the iPad.
Customization of 16-64 GB of memory
$499-$699 price range
Optional 3G capabilities and built in WiFi capabilities
10 hours of battery life
From what I’ve gathered the iPad basically sounds like an 10″ iPhone. It will be able to run apps and provide a larger viewing size for the internet and movies. I think the one cool feature is that the iPad will be big on e-reading, so much so that Apple has created a bookstore – iBooks. I suppose this will be a device that’ll mean more to me once the world completely does away with physical books, newspapers, and magzines, but until then, I’d much rather have a collection of actual books than digital books.
Cool product, but I think I’ll hold out on this one.
