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.

"P.S.
Regarding the unusually-large bezel, I suspect it's meant to give you something to grip, so you're not pressing your thumb into the screen the whole time you're using the device.


It's a touch-screen, no? Won't you pressing your fingers into it most of the time you're using it, by design? ;)
"

No, you need to hold the damn thing somehow, right?

Yes, exactly. FINALLY. Someone else realized you had to hold the device.

I’m sorry but the bezel is still too big, even for that purpose. at least from what I can see on the pics out there.
It remains to be seen when we get to actually touch and see the device.
