iPad Arrives April

Apple’s new multimedia platform, the iPad, is set to arrive on these shores at the end of April.

Apple today announced all models (both Wi-Fi and 3G) of its iPad will be available in Australia in late April, but there is still no pricing available.

iPad lets users browse the web, read and send email, share photos, watch videos, listen to music, play games and read ebooks. iPad is 1.27 centimetres thick and weighs 680 grams – thinner and lighter than any laptop or netbook—and delivers battery life of up to 10 hours.

The iPad has a Multi-Touch interface whereby you can read and send email on its large screen and almost full-size soft keyboard or import photos from a Mac, PC or digital camera, see them organised as albums, and enjoy and share them using iPad’s slideshows.

The App Store on iPad lets you wirelessly browse, buy and download new apps. iPad includes 12 new apps designed for unit and will run almost all of the more than 150,000 apps on the App Store, including apps already purchased for your iPhone or iPod Touch.
Developers are already creating new apps designed for iPad that use its Multi-Touch interface, large screen and graphics.
