The Apple iPad is 0.5 inches thick (just as slim as the iPhone) and weighs in at 1.5 pounds. It sports a 9.7-inch IPS display and offers “full capacitive multi-touch”. iPad will be sold with an unlocked micro SIM card, but Apple has a new prepaid data plan deal with AT&T Wireless $30 per month for unlimited data or $15 per month for up to 250MB. AT&T Wi-Fi hotspots will be free to use when signing up for a data plan with AT&T. There’s no contract and you can cancel it at anytime. The AT&T plans can also be activated on the Apple iPad.
I’d seen sooo many different designer’s renditions of this over the past couple years but I never actually thought it would be put into production. I mean, it’s not a brand new concept, there’s been numerous tablet PCs on the market for quite a while now.. but as always, Apple just takes everything next level.
I’m not sure I’d ever get used to using a computer/laptop without an actual keybord or if I’d ever even use this. It’s basically a larger version of an iPod touch/iPhone.. but the concept is pretty damn innovative.
