Apple's Steve Jobs Unveils The iPad Tablet

Compiled and Written by

On Jan. 27th, 2010 Steve Jobs introduced Apple's iPad to an enthusiastic audience in San Francisco, the home base of Apple. In a nutshell, the iPad is the iPhone expanded to the power of 10. All the features of the very popular iPhone presented in a larger version.

What, you were expecting more?

Well, the iPad does have some great selling points - under $500 for the 16-gigabyte version, 1Ghz Apple A4 Chip, 10 Hours of Battery Life and the High Definition 9.7 inch IPS Display will probably present the web in a whole new light, especially when you add in the "toch-screen" elements.

"Holding the Internet in your hands" is what Jobs calls it.

Some models have 3G built in but the cost will be around $130 and there are two plans which run $14.99 for 250 MB per month and $29.99 for unlimited.

There is Touch Typing with an on-screen keyboard but you can buy an external keyboard for $69. You can also purchase a dock for this device and several other accessories.

Of course, it will have all the Apple Apps Store built in, as well as access to Five publishers: Penguin, Macmillan, Simon & Schuster, Harper Collins and Hachette. So eBooks is a major feature of the iPad which could spell bad news for Amazon's Kindle if the iPad becomes popular with the buying public.

The jury is still out on that point but there are several factors why Jobs and Apple may have a real winner on their hands. The iPad plugs neatly into two of the hottest laptop markets of the moment:

The netbook and the eReader.

The iPad combines those two categories of mobile computing and may just prove too irresistible for buyers to ignore. Give them a deal they can't refuse and they won't!

Apple and Jobs are counting on it.
