Or perhaps it is better called a “mobile device”. At any rate, I’m catching all this within seconds by watching the engadget live blog feed.
Here are my latest two tweets about this:
Confirmation – APPLE unveils the “iPad”! (from engadget live blog) http://bit.ly/9Ihm6f Hmm, looks kind of boxish, lol #fb
Is watching the engadet live blog on the Apple Jan 27th unveiling event – Steve Jobs mentions “tablet”! Here we go! http://bit.ly/9Ihm6f #fb
A couple important things I just noted:
- No flash support for the Safari browser on the iPad. Ouch, that hurts.
- YouTube HD capability. Very good!
- Very iPhone/iTouch like QWERTY keyboard (nothing revolutionary here…)
Meh. I don’t think it’s going to be as revolutionary as many thought it would be. Like DailyFinance pointed out in their excellent article, Apple Tablet Release: 10 Reasons NOT To Buy An Apple Tablet, I do think that a revised version of the iPad will come out relatively soon and I think they can improve quite a bit on this initial design.
UPDATE: Display is a 9.7 inch IPS LCD display. Nice. Not as cool as OLED technology, though.
The End. Carry on with the rest of your Wednesday 🙂
