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.

I think Thom's right about tablets in general. It's funny how all the people in the tablet video have their legs aloft while they're typing - typing sat upright will be difficult. That'll all come out in the wash.


Posturally you're right but then my physiotherapist obliged me to put my laptop on stand so it probably isn't an issue that will block its popularity.

This looks to me like a winner as a device that people will want to live with and throw into the backpack when setting off for the weekend.

It marks the beginning of the end of the iPodTouch though and I can imagine more than a few technophiles will ditch theirs for a new iPad.

Really? You can walk down the street listening to music on the 10" iPad tucked in your back pocket? No, I think not - if anything, it's the iPad struggling to find a niche between compact devices like iPhone/iPod, and traditional laptops...
