It’s official: The iPad is coming our way! Apple has just revealed the long awaited device. As you can see it is a big iPhone, which according to Apple will fill the gap between the iPhone and the MacBook.
Browsing, email, photos, e-books, and videos are the main functions it’ll do better than an iPhone and with a lot more apps on the way it sure looks promising. Especially as a gaming device and an e-reader I think it’ll be very successful. I think the biggest news for Apple is that they are introducing the iBook-store. Just as iTunes and the App Store this will be a very fruitful business for them.
In the US it will be available together with a subscription from AT&T for all the mobile browsing. With prices starting at $499,- for a basic version up to $829,- for the full swing 64gig-3G version.
Besides all the technological coolness you just have to agree with me that Apple has once again delivered a market changing and massively good looking device. Well done Steve!
