Special: This ain't no Newton...


In addition to gaming, the iPad will run many other iPhone apps, but in a souped-up iPad kind of way. These include email, web surfing (but no Flash), calendars, photos, music (with a built in iTunes Store), videos, ebooks and a full-size on-screen QWERTY keyboard. So what will this monstrosity cost? According to Jobs, the iPad will be priced "very aggressively" when it ships in late March with a 16GB model coming in at $499, a 32GB for $599 and a 64GB for $699. All versions of the iPad will come with Wi-Fi built in and Apple will offer 3G models in April for a slightly expanded price of $629 (16GB), $749 (32GB) or $829 (64GB). The 3G models will feature data plans through AT&T of up to 250MB of data per month for $14.99 or an unlimited plan for $29.99.

    "Last time there was this much excitement about a tablet, it had some commandments written on it."
    - Martin Peers, Wall Street Journal

    After all the rumors and hype, Mr. Peers may have summed up all of the Apple Tablet hoopla in one perfect sentence. But it appears that the wait is finally over as Apple CEO Steve Jobs has unveiled the iPad today during a press conference in San Francisco.

    "It's so much more intimate than a laptop and so much more capable than a smart phone," Jobs said as he unveiled the worst kept secret in the technological world.



    At first glance, the device looks like a scaled up version of the iPhone/iTouch, and that's essentially what it is. The iPad will run all of the existing iPhone apps while allowing developers to make use of its expanded screen size for bigger projects. These bigger projects include Gameloft's N.O.V.A. with a new control scheme (you can now "throw" grenades with your finger) and an updated version of Need For Speed: Shift.

    You can see Jobs showing off the iPad's gaming capibilities in this video, direct from the press conference:
