The Apple iPad

Steve Jobs, along with his ever-present god-awful oversized black turtleneck, announced the new Apple iPad this morning. "Everybody uses a laptop and smartphone. A question has arisen: Is there room for a third device between a laptop and smartphone?" Jobs asked. "We've got something that is. We call it the iPad."

iPad features include the ability to browse the Web and listen to music, with photo, calendar, and maps applications. It will work with the iTunes store to let users discover and purchase music, movies and TV shows, Jobs added. When the iPad is turned sideways, it orients the view for the user, much like the iPhone.
