What is the iPad really? Is it a bigger version of the iPhone or are there things about this new device that have yet to be released? By appearance, the phone looks as though it was a larger replica or the iPhone but when getting into detail about its functionabilities, its hard to tell whether or not the device is worth the price. The price is said to start off as $500 per unit. Let's take a look into the device.
