Steve Jobs announces new Apple iPad tablet

With all the hype regarding the new Apple iPad tablet I want to share some recent news. Steve Jobs, co-founder and CEO of Apple Inc. announces the new apple iPad tablet at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco on Wednesday.

“When something exceedes your ability to understand how it works, it sort of becomes magical,” said Apple’s Senior Vice President of Design Jony Ive. The magicians at work behind the tool that changed modern technology, the iPhone, are at it again, and this time they’ve created a product that, at this point, seems like a mere illusion. The iPad, which will be available in two to three months, will truly revolutionize everyday life. This innovative piece of technology will change the way consumers work, with large touch-screen Internet and e-mail capabilities, and play, with videos, photos, iBooks, and a YouTube app. The iPad also comes with a comprehensive contact list, calendar, and an on-screen keyboard accompanying a place to take notes, although now, we’d expect nothing less from Apple.


The iPad has Wi-Fi availability and can also run on AT&T’s third generation wireless network. With a convenient size, around that of a magazine, and weighing only 1.5 pounds, the iPad fits nicely into a purse or briefcase, making it light enough to take to the office, and big enough to read on the subway. Because of its user-friendly lay-out and design, coupled with Apple’s strong reputation of reliability, this new gadget will no doubt become the latest must-have accessory. If that’s not enough to excite even the most savvy technaholic, the iPad is equipped with a battery life lasting up to ten hours, making this little widget nothing short of a wonder.
