After the internet technosexualsphere almost busted a collective nut, Apple finally unveiled their latest creation today and it’s called the iPad. And no, it’s not a feminine hygiene product. It’s basically a giant iPhone using the touch technology that has given Apple the ‘must have’ buzz it has needed to reach record sales this year. Strangely, stock dipped immediately after the unveiling. The price tag is so far set at $1000 dollars with software that is somewhere between a typical Mac OS and an iPhone OS.

Here is a little blurb from Engadget:
“It’s a half-inch thick and weighs just 1.5 pounds, with a 9.7-inch capacitive touchscreen IPS LCD display, and it’s running a custom 1GHz Apple “A4″ chip developed by the P.A. Semi team, with a 10-hour battery life and a month of standby. It’ll come in 16, 32, and 64GB sizes, and it’s got the expected connectivity: very little. There’s a 30-pin Dock connector, a speaker, a microphone, Bluetooth, and 802.11n WiFi, as well as an accelerometer and a compass. The device is managed by iTunes, just like the iPhone — you sync everything over to your Mac.”

Read all about it at Engadget.

UPDATE: Apple has made the device available already through their website. The 16GB introductory price starts at $499 topping out with Wi-Fi + 3G for $829.

    I love how one of the guys is truly excited when explaining that the pictures flip if you turn it to show them to someone else… WOW… real state-of-the-art technology… And Browsing is FUN??? It’s just a giant iphone (without the phone)

    Yeah, I am not exactly sure where they see this one fitting into the market yet. Not exactly compelling as far as I am concerned. It would have been nice to see a more functional touch-capable Macbook or Macbook Pro.

    I believe there are a large number of people where this product makes sense. It’s a fancy E-Reader. Thus far, Apple has created products that fit into any lifestyle. What’s wrong with them creating a product that not everyone will use? Not everything has to be revolutionary or compelling. Of course, this is the first release. The majority may find use for it with future releases.

    Steve Job’s revolutionary product will rapidly grow after the first push launch during it’s launch. The A4 chip and Apple’s potential to fix hardware will help to make the product a monster in the futuire.
