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.

Exactly!

This thing blow the iPad out of the water for reading.(although iPad sounds like a womens hygiene product, so maybe water is the wrong word here.)

I can't seem to find any information about when it (the tegra thingy) will hit the shops, nor about the price, do you have any link to that?

Well, atm it is still vaporware. But if you think about it:

Android is fairly ready and can be customized by a small team.
Nvidia tegra is ready.
Pixel Qi screens seem to be getting along quite well judging from the CES videos.

I really hope they make the June shipping date and hit the price point around $350.

Total iPad killer for me.
