Everything Apple causes is a storm in the tech world, but if it's just an average Joe (or Jane), you may want to know what the knot is. What is the Apple iPad (and you want one)? Let's look fast.
What is the iPad?
iPad is basically a portable entertainment system. Allows you to watch movies, read e-books and news, listen to games, listen to music, and send emails (requires wireless connections). The saturated version of iPod Touch, except for a significantly larger display. Its full-color 9.7-inch screen is the same as Amazon Kindle DX (one of the most popular eBook readers currently on the market). The iPad weighs 1.5 pounds, and Apple says 10 hours of battery life (computer manufacturers tend to overestimate these things, but it's sure enough to get through some movies before recharging).
The iPad can run most App Store applications and have a user interface similar to the iPhone, so it's easy to use if you already know Apple's latest products (and even if not, the touch interface is quite intuitive.)
iPad does not necessarily replace the laptop, it has an iWork application installer (which includes Keynote presentations, numbers for spreadsheets, and text editing pages) that can be used to download basic computer jobs such as the iPhone when a screen keyboard to enter text, "keys" are a bit easier to use than on the iPhone. iWork application costs $ 10 and will be available in the iTunes App Store
What can the iPad do? you can not make calls, and give local wifi signals to Apple To access delegate (more e-books, movies, music, games, etc. to download).
How much does the iPad cost?
The original iPad cost $ 499. According to Apple, there will be an upgraded 3G-capable iPad (that is, it will be able to access the Internet just like a cell phone with a web browser) for a few months. This version is $ 629 and runs $ 29.99 a month for 3G access (unlike the iPhone, there will be no monthly service contract to sign).
Now that you know what the iPad is, you have to decide that this is the right all-in-one entertainment tool for you!
