Apple In what everybody already saw coming for weeks (months) now, Apple has just unveiled its latest product, a tablet called the iPad. Basically a bigger version of the iPhone, Steve Jobs presented the iPad during a press event in San Francisco. The most interesting news? It's powered by... An Apple processor, called the A4. The most shocking news? The price.

$499 only sounds good because all Apple products are really expensive and every Apple pundit expected $899 or ยง999.

But let's face it. It is a 10 inch screen + a ARM-like CPU + 16 GB of flash + some RAM (how much?) + cool aluminum body.

$499 is not great for that hardware. $299 would have been.
