After years of hype, and months of endless debate, Apple officially announced the iPad. Nicely priced at $499 (for wi-fi only) it’s pretty much an iPhone on steroids and is Apple’s answer to the netbook, e-reader (as they have also announced ibooks) and more powerful portable gaming device. It has a 9.6 inch multi-touch back lit LED display and weighs in at only 1.5 lbs with a thickness of 0.5 inches. It comes equipped with bluetooth for wireless headphones or a wireless keyboard and also as a 10 hour battery. Looks pretty impressive, but will it prove to be another successful gadget for apple? Only time will tell, until then, you can get more info here.
