I already mentioned that the long anticipated, lusted after, and rumored iPad is finally here. Apple and Steve Jobs have unveiled what they expect to be the next great game changing device. The full specs of the machine are going to be listed below for quick perusal.
The iPad is about half an inch thick and weighs 1.5 pounds. Honestly, I was hoping it would be lighter than that, but that is still lighter than a netbook. The screen is a 9.7-inch IPS with capacitive multitouch. The CPU behind the little beast is according to Jobs "our own silicon" specifically called the Apple A4 chip and it operates at 1GHz. Storage will be 16GB to 64GB.
Other specifications include WiFi, Bluetooth 2.1+ EDR, an accelerometer, a compass, integrated speaker, microphone, and a 30-pin connector. Apple promises 10 hours of battery life with over a month on standby. Early rumors say that the battery life drops significantly when you play games on it. There will also be versions with 3G connectivity and they are all unlocked. Pricing will start at $499.
