Apple IPAD is the name of a new device that Apple had released on April 3, 2010 in USA. On Wednesday April 14, 2010, Apple has announced that they are delaying the release of Ipad in the international market due to increased demand at home. As I mentioned in my previous article, more than 300000 ipads were sold on the first day of its release, so in simple words, you can say that IPAD is a big iPhone but has technical characteristics of a great computer. It's loaded with all the capabilities of an iPhone, but with the potential of portability and usability of a laptop. It is certainly somewhere between a laptop and a cell phone, but its best part is that it can run PC software just like your personal computer. IPAD has a good music player which can be synced with iTunes It has an e-book reader. It has a special web browser. You can watch your favorite videos, photos, use the on-screen keyboard to google, etc. vertical or horizontal. It has not got a camera but can be used with iphone via Bluetooth as a wireless camera. Ipad also supports high definition playback of YouTube videos. Ipad also supports iTunes. IPAD includes Bluetooth 2.1 connectivity, WiFi, and 3G. Apple’s IPAD has a battery which lasts 10 hours. Ipad also has a digital compass.


Ipad Features

Ipad’s central processing unit was also designed by Apple and it is called A4 which runs at 1 GHz. IPAD is available in three versions which affect its price: 16GB cheap range, 32GB middle range, and 64GB highest price of Ipad which includes 3G plus Wi-Fi connectivity. According to Steve Jobs, Apple IPAD screen measures 9.7 inches and 0.5 inches wide. IPAD supports flash and you can play mostly all the games you were able to play on iPhone plus many more kinds of leisure and entertainment activities. Apple ipad is a perfect and convenient platform to enjoy your leisure time and loads of features.

      Thanks for all the detailed specs. I was just researching preliminary information on the next iPad, due to be announced near the end of Jan 2011. It appears to come with dual cameras for chat, a better speaker, a more square conventional case and probably a separate CDMA version for Verizon subscribers.

      The Ipad has a neat app that identifies cosmological formations by simply pointing the divice in its direction;)
