on Wednesday,January 27,2010 23:01
The designers of the iPod and iPhone have released their latest high-tech device.
Apple has announced the launch of the iPad, a portable computer that features innovations in web and graphic design that allow users to browse the internet, read and send email, share photos, watch videos, listen to music, play games and read e-books.
The machine''s 9.5-inch screen includes a Multi-Touch display and nearly full-size keyboard. The iPad is 0.5 inches thick and weighs 1.5 pounds, which is thinner than any laptop or notebook that is currently on the market.
Although iPad users can transfer previously purchased applications from their iPods or iPhones, designers have already created 12 new applications that are intended specifically for the new device. All of these programs can be viewed in either portrait or landscape formats.
The device is powered by Apple''s A4 chip, which was designed to enhance processing and graphics performance as well as a maximum battery life of 10 hours.
Steve Jobs, CEO of Apple, said the iPad is intended to be the first of "an entirely new category of devices that will connect users with their apps and content in a much more intimate, intuitive and fun way than ever before."
