iPad Will Be Available Soon

Apple recently announced that their latest gotta-have gadget, the iPad ,will be available soon in the US market. Although you can start making your orders as early as next week or March 12, you will have to wait a few more weeks before you can get your hands on the gadget. The wi-fi ready models of the iPad will be available on April 3, but if you're aiming for the 3G version of the device, you'll have to cool your heels for a couple more weeks since the 3G version will be available late April. Customers outside of the US will also have to wait until late April before they can start using the much anticipated tablet computer from Apple. These countries include Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Switzerland and the UK. Countries not listed above will have to wait a bit longer since Apple has not yet announced when they will be released.

According to Apple CEO, Steve Jobs:
“iPad is something completely new. We’re excited for customers to get their hands on this magical and revolutionary product and connect with their apps and content in a more intimate, intuitive and fun way than ever before.”

With a thickness of just 0.5 inches and a weight of 1.5 lbs., the iPad is the thinnest and lightest compared to the other netbooks and laptops available in the market today. And its supposed to have a battery life of up to 10 hours. Other features of the iPad are as follows:

  • A Multi-Touch interface allowing an enhanced internet experience
  • Read and send email on the large display of the iPad
  • A near full-size 'soft' keypad
  • Import images from a Mac®, PC or even your digital camera and organize them into albums which you can easily share using the elegant slideshows of iPad
  • Watch movies, TV shows and Youtube videos in HD
  • Flip through the pages of an ebook which you can download from the iBookstore of Apple while listening to your favorite music
