Apple iPad as gaming machine

(Best Syndication News) Apple CEO Steve Jobs showed-off the new iPad today in San Francisco. This could be a revolutionary device that is way better than a laptop and phone, according to Jobs.

The iPad will come in 3 versions: The 16GB for $499, the 32GB for $599 and the 64GB version for $699. This is far less than the rumored $1,000. It is not a laptop and it isn’t a smartphone. Jobs said it was better than either one, but stopped short of saying it would replace the Mac.

With its 9.7 inch 1024x768 IPS LCD touch screen, it is better than a netbook. "Now, some people thought that was a netbook—the problem is that netbooks aren't better than anything!" Unlike other grayscale tablets, the iPad is full color.

Back-to-School 300x250

The iPad includes an iPhone / Mac hybrid operating system running on an A4 1 Ghz chip designed by Apple. Jobs made a point about the thinness of the iPad. It measure just .5 inches thick and weights only 1.5 pounds.

There is 10 hours of battery life. You can watch movies, browse the internet with their Safari browser, check you calendar, and perform various other computer functions. You will be able to run some games on it too.

The iPad is not yet available. The initial versions will connect to the web via Wi-Fi, but a 3G connection will be available in the future. Service will be sold separately. The iPad also comes with Bluetooth 2.1 with EDR.

You can connect your Apple wireless keyboard to the iPad.
