Apple iPad to hit the US this April 3

by



It seems that in recent years, anything that Apple comes up with seems to generate a whole lot of publicity. We can’t really blame them for making good on their range of devices though, delivering quality as well as the most important of them all – a fantastic user experience which appeals to the broadest user base. Well, the iPad which was unveiled a couple of months ago certainly raised quite a furore amongst the general population, but there are also the fair share of detractors. Well, fans of the iPad will be pleased to know that the magical and revolutionary device is tipped to hit the US market on April 3rd, although this is limited to just its Wi-Fi models while others who want the high end Wi-Fi + 3G models will have to wait until the end of April. As for people living in Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Spain, Switzerland and the UK, they will be able to get their hands on the iPad in late April as well.

Too lazy to queue up at an Apple Store and fight with the crowd? You can always place your pre-order for both Wi-Fi and Wi-Fi + 3G models from Apple’s online store from March 12th onwards. With prices starting from $499 upwards, we do wonder whether the iPad will do well based on its merits alone and not because of all the hype generated over the past few months. To recap, the iPad is capable of letting users browse the web, read and send email, enjoy and share photos, watch videos, listen to music, play games and read ebooks among others. It measures all of 0.5″ thin which makes it a snap to slide it into a MacBook Air case without any trouble, while the 1.5 pounds weight makes it the thinnest and lightest device out there when compared to any netbook (of course, this is comparing apples and oranges – pun intended), since it can do many things the netbook already does.

This is quite the innovative device and hardly a gadget! If this doesn’t boost sales for Tablet PCs, then nothing will!
Still, it’s missing a few features, such as USB, a camera and Ethernet port.
Hopefully the 2nd Generation will have those extras and the prices should drop, too!
I’ll consider getttin one, then!

Looks perfect, and I don’t have to turn off those annoying flash commercials. I’d pay extra for that.

I understand why the apple haters are so inflamed. This such a simple machine, yet so elegant. Like the mercedes, “austere elegance”. And like the mercedes, apples are made well. Why can’t one of the hordes in the pc manufacturing community get it right?

When I am mentoring junior engineers, I show them a G5 or Imac. Then I tell them, this is how you should design.
