Apple iPad

It’s official, the new Apple product is the iPad. Steve Jobs says that it’s a blend of the iPhone and the MacBook – a beautiful web browser and image viewer as well as an awesome music system and video content player.

The device is lightening quick and extremely thin and light. It looks quite like a huge iPhone and I am fascinated to see where in the market it fits in. Of course as with all Apple products the operating system looks fantastic, the actual hardware is a thing of beauty and it will, to quote Steve Jobs, ‘it will just work’.

Here are a couple of articles, with video, from the BBC website

It was fascinating whilst the press conference was happening, the internet was alive with micro blogging about the unveiling – Twitter temporarily shut down due to the sheer wieght of traffic to the site. People were even tweeting from inside the press conference. Journalism is moving very quickly!
