So… the wait is officially over! Steve Jobs introduced the Apple iPad earlier today to tons of excited Mac fans. Part iPod Touch, part laptop, part… feminine hygiene product.
Ok, well not that last one… but, I mean really with a name like iPad who didn’t see the tampon jokes coming??? I mean, I will say when it’s my time of the month, I’ll feel clean and confident with the Apple iPad.
But, now that the cats out of the bag let’s talk about the latest gotta have Mac Gadget. And yeah… even with the sucky name… I am drinking the Apple Kool-Aid! And I WANT IT!!! I mean reading the New York Times in the park on my trusty iPad!?! The thought of having my comic books on a computer without fear of ripping the pages in my bag!?! 10 hours of battery power!??! Umm sign me up!
Ok here’s what we’ve got…
- 9.7 inch screen
- “Multi-touch” touch-screen interface (ok Android you better get on that multi-touch ASAP!!!)
- 1.5 pounds
- 1/2 inch thick
- Up to 10 hours of battery power (watching continuous video), with 1 month standby
- Some models support 3G Network (only with AT&T… booooo hisss…)
- Built-in speakers
- Full touch screen keyboard
Now the big questions… How much does this game changing magical device cost? And when can I get my hands on one???
Well, for those light days- $499 for the 16GB; regular days- $599 for the 32GB and for the heavy days- $699 for the 64GB.you need the… Max-iPad!!! haha Ok, last one I promise! And the wait? Not to long. In about 2 months you can have one of your very own and be the envy of all of your friends!
The only thing thats missing for me… A camera??? I’m guessing that’ll come on the 2nd gen model, so well all feel like we need to drop another $500 to get the better model!
ohhhh… and side note, I CAN’T wait to see the iPad commercials!!!
