Apple’s "iPad" Out In the Open

Reader oxide7 is one of the many to note that the heaviest speculation is mostly over (still waiting on the price, though) about Apple’s anticipated new device (though there are surely plenty of questions about the device’s hardware capabilities and the scope of its software and content marketplace): “At an event in San Francisco Apple released its anticipated iPad.’[It's] Way better than a laptop, way better then a phone. You can turn it any way you want. To see the whole page is phenomenal,’ said Jobs.” The (0.5″) skinny: 1.5 lbs, multitouch, up to 64GB of flash, 9.7″ screen, and a 1Ghz “Apple A4″ chip (more about the A4 in Engadget’s developing story). The iPad is closer in concept to an expanded iPhone (OS and all) than a miniaturized laptop, though it doesn’t have quite as much connectivity as you might expect, with no 3G connection built in. (You’ll have to make do with 802.11n, Bluetooth, and tethering.) Live coverage is ongoing at gdgt live, Engadget, and Gizmodo, as well as various others.
