Unless you’ve been under rock for the last year, you’ll have no doubt heard about Apple’s highly-anticipated tablet PC, the iPad. For those who venture out from under that rock periodically, but not for the last week – the iPad has been officially launched.

Unveiled by the man Steve Jobs himself at Apple’s Keynote demo, 27th Jan, the iPad wowed some, but disappointed others. But let’s bear in mind that not many of these critics and reviewers actually have their hands on a real live Apple iPad, for that, most of us will just have to wait until March for the standard WiFi model, or until April for the 3G and WiFi version.

The iPad is incredibly sleek, measuring just 9.56 x 7.47 x 0.5 inches, with a 9.7-inch display. It’s got a fully capacitive TFT LCD multitouch screen with a native resolution of 1024 x 768.

Under the hood is Apple’s new A4 ARM processor, which, through its incredibly efficient power usage promises to decode HD video for up to 10 hours. The iPad will connect to the internet and other networks via 802.11n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and on the highest end models, 3G. It comes with Apple’s classic accelerometer, a compass, built-in speaker, a mic, and a standard 30-pin connector.

Both WiFi and 3G models are available with either 16GB, 32GB or 64GB of flash storage. The iPad will be available unlocked to use with a carrier of your choosing, and there are already a couple of data plans available though AT&T. An unlimited connection, which includes being able to use AT&T Wi-Fi hotspots for free, will cost $30 a month with the option to cancel at anytime. The other plan is for 250MB of data priced at $15 – not bad considering it usually costs around $60 for unlimited data on a laptop.

Check out video highlights from the iPad unveiling atApple Keynote event.

Apple iPad Overview

It’s hard to believe we could fit so many great ideas into something so thin.

A large, high-resolution LED-backlit IPS display. An incredibly responsive Multi-Touch screen. And an amazingly powerful Apple-designed chip. All in a design that’s thin and light enough to take anywhere. iPad isn’t just the best device of its kind. It’s a whole new kind of device.

One of the first things you’ll notice about iPad is how thin and light it is. The screen is 9.7 inches measured diagonally. So overall, it’s slightly smaller than a magazine. At just 1.5 pounds and 0.5 inch thin,1 you can take it anywhere. And a slight curve to the back makes it easy to pick up and comfortable to hold.

iPad will run almost 140,000 apps from the App Store. So you can use all those incredibly fun and useful apps — including everything from games to productivity apps — right out of the box.

Apple iPad Multi-Touch Screen

Multi Touch

Multi Touch

All of the built-in apps on iPad were designed from the ground up to take advantage of the large Multi-Touch screen. And they work in any orientation. So you can do things with these apps that you can’t do on any other device.

The Multi-Touch screen on iPad is based on the same revolutionary technology on iPhone. But the technology has been completely reengineered for the larger iPad surface, making it extremely precise and responsive. So whether you’re zooming in on a map, flicking through your photos, or deleting an email, iPad responds with incredible accuracy. And it does just what you want it to.

LED-Backlit IPS Display

Backlit LED Display

Backlit LED Display

The high-resolution, 9.7-inch LED-backlit IPS display on iPad is remarkably crisp and vivid. Which makes it perfect for web browsing, watching movies, or viewing photos. With iPad, there is no up or down. It’s designed to show off your content in portrait or landscape orientation with every turn. And because it uses a display technology called IPS (in-plane switching), it has a wide, 178° viewing angle. So you can hold it almost any way you want and still get a brilliant picture, with excellent color and contrast.

Safari Internet Browser

The large Multi-Touch screen on iPad lets you see web pages as they were meant to be seen — one page at a time. With vibrant color and sharp text. So whether you’re looking at a page in portrait or landscape, you can see everything at a size that’s actually readable. And with iPad, navigating the web has never been easier or more intuitive. Because you use the most natural pointing device there is: your finger. Scroll through a page just by flicking your finger up or down on the screen. Or pinch to zoom in or out on a photo. There’s also a thumbnail view that shows all your open pages in a grid, to let you quickly move from one page to the next.

E-Mail

E-mail

E-mail

See and touch your email in ways you never could before. In landscape, you get a split-screen view showing both an opened email and the messages in your inbox. To see the opened email by itself, turn iPad to portrait, and the email automatically rotates and fills the screen. No matter which orientation you use, you can scroll through your mail, compose a new email using the large, onscreen keyboard, or delete messages with nothing more than a tap and a flick. If someone emails you a photo, you can see it right in the message. You can also save the photos in an email directly to the built-in Photos app. And iPad works with all the most popular email providers, including MobileMe, Yahoo! Mail, Gmail, Hotmail, and AOL.

Photos

Photos

With its crisp, vibrant display and unique software features, iPad is an extraordinary way to enjoy and share your photos. For example, the Photos app displays the photos in an album as though they were in a stack. Just tap the stack, and the whole album opens up. From there, you can flip through your pictures, zoom in or out, or watch a slideshow. You can even use your iPad as a beautiful digital photo frame while it’s docked or charging. And there are lots of ways to import photos: You can sync them from your computer, download them from an email, or import them directly from your camera using the optional Camera Connection Kit.

Video
