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.

Frankly, it's a bit disappointing. This gadget isn't cheap enough for basic usage and not powerful enough for advanced one. No GPS? No camera? Disappointing.

However, it could have a good chance in learning and education even if it would have been much better with a lower price tag. Education is however a great opportunity for tablets as well as vertical markets are (like LoB apps). That's another good chance for iPad.

I don't see it for widespread usage. But this is first generation and usually Apple isn't very good at first try (first iPhone anyone?).

Device is sleak but hasn't a very good position in market. Do you really think people will buy this to read New York Times?
