The long anticipated wait for the unbelievable Apple iPad is almost over. Many techies and Apple fans have been waiting for this day ever since Apple announced plans to make the sleek, stylish and revolutionary iPad.
What is even more amazing is that the iPad will start at $499 for a 16GB with Wi-Fi. Apple will offer six iPadâ€™s; three with Wi-Fi and three with Wi+Fi + 3G. The iPad will be available in 16GB, 32GB and 64GB.
Consumers that are familiar with Appleâ€™s iPod touch and iPhone will find the iPad a cinch to use, since it will operate the same way. The iPad is just the newest gadget to put the world in the palms of our hands.
The iPad is loaded with the Apple standard internet browser Safari, iTunes, the App Store (with over 150,000 apps to pick and choose from), a new app called iBooks that will make reading and buying books even simpler, YouTube, Maps, iPod, email, and much more.
One of the best features about the iPad is that all of the apps that are built-in, were designed specifically for the iPad to take advantage of the 9.7â€ touch-screen and the multi-functionality it is capable of. Owners of previous Apple products will notice how the apps on the iPad work differently than they do on the other devices.
Coming in at 1.5 pounds (0.68 kg) for the Wi-Fi model and an extra-tenth of a pound (1.6 lb, 0.73 kg) for the Wi-Fi + 3G model, the iPad is light enough to carry anywhere you go.
The iPad is powered by a 1GHz Apple A4 custom-designed processor with a built-in 25-watt-hour rechargeable lithium-polymer battery. This battery will allow for up to 10 hours of â€œsurfinâ€™ the netâ€, watching movies or simply listening to music.
What are the chances of securing an iPad during its public launch tomorrow? Well, if you are planning to show up at an Apple store or one of the approximate 667 Best Buyâ€™s out of 1,000 with integrated Apple shops, you are probably going to be out of luck. The hype for the iPad is real and if you missed the pre-order for this amazing device you more than likely will be waiting for a few weeks until the next shipment will be sent.
Hereâ€™s an interesting tidbit; if you feel like stopping by your local Apple store at 3:00 pm, you may be lucky enough to pick up a reserved iPad that was retrieved by the reserve-e. Apple has said that all reserved iPads that arenâ€™t picked up by 3:00 pm will be released to the public.
For everyone in search of Appleâ€™s newest game-changer in the industry, the iPad, I offer two words; Good Luck!
