Apple has once again built a product that not just looks good but also feels great in the hand; and that product is their latest “Apple iPad”.
The Apple iPad is intended to satisfy our cravings for simplicity and clarity, just like everything that Apple designs. It resembles a giant iPhone with 9.7-inch full-color, touch screen and weighs only 1.5 pounds and is a 0.5 inch thin which makes it easy to carry everywhere.
It has a slight curve at the back which makes it easy to pick-up and comfortable to hold.
iPad has all the familiar user interface of both iPhone and iPod touch. It is flat, has a black screen with a single button but underneath wants to be a laptop. It can be used to watch movies, surf the net, listen to music, view photos, and read e-books and digital versions of newspapers and magazines. Its battery life lasted for 10 hours used. Because Apple engineers used the same lithium-polymer battery technology that they developed for Mac notebook computers.
For anyone who loves new technology, getting the first touch of a new Apple device is a little like laying hand on the Shroud of Turin, or seeing a unicorn: the first experience of a mythical object imbued with miraculous properties.
Jobs trumpeted it as exactly that, a magical device that will change the way we use computers in our everyday lives. And while playing with the iPad was not exactly a religious experience, it's not hard to see that the gadget, or at least the ideas it contains, will be with us for a long time to come.
