Most everyone were expecting Apple to announce some sort of tablet device today, but still seeing it revealed, I think it is a lot cooler than we expected.
The iPad is powered by Apple’s own custom silicon. It’s called the A4 and runs at 1GHz. 16, 32, or 64GB of flash storage. It’s got the latest in wireless: 802.11n, WiFi, and Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR. Also included are: accelerometer, compass, speaker, mic, dock connector.
The one accessory that was announced that will be a hit is the keyboard dock.
All iPhone apps in the App Store will work on the iPad. They can be run at native resolution with a black border, or at 2x scale to fill the entire screen.
