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 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.

Yeah, I got to play with a friend's Android mobile phone a few weeks ago. At least to my tastes, the interface was far, far and away superior. I would be much more interested in a tablet running Android at a lower price-point.

Heh, altho, I suppose I still don't know if I'd actually buy it. As I've said before, a tablet would have to be... pretty cheap indeed, to get me to spring for it.
