Today Apple announced the iPad, a tablet computer for browsing the web and consuming media content. The device offers many of the same features that the iPhone does, including finger-based touch control directly on the screen, email, calendar, address book, Google Maps, iTunes store, iPhoto and other Apple software. It is 0.5-inches thin, weighs 1.5 pounds, and has a 9.7-inch IPS display. It uses a custom Apple processor chip that runs at 1GHz, and comes with 16, 32, or 64GB of flash storage. It also includes 802.11n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 2.1+EDR, accelerometer, compass, speaker, mic, dock connector, and boasts 10 hours of battery life. Apple says the device is compatible with iPhone applications. Apple also announced a new SDK for the iPad, which developers can download starting today. Apple also said that the device will have 7.2Mbps HSDPA 3G wireless built in (quad-band GSM/EDGE, 850/1900/2100MHz HSDPA). There will be a $15 plan that buys 250MB of data per month and an unlimited plan for $30 per month. The 3G service will be provided by AT&T, and is provided with no contract. It will also give users access to AT&T's Wi-Fi hot spots. Apple says all of the iPad 3G models will be sold unlocked, and they use the new GSM microSIMs. Deals with international wireless providers should be in place by June. Pricing for the tablet will start at $499 for 16GB, $599 for 32GB, $699 for 64GB, and an extra $130 to add 3G wireless. Models with only Wi-Fi will ship in 60 days (March 27) and models with 3G should be available by late April.
