Apple announces the iPad

It's finally here. At their event in San Francisco, Apple has officially announced their tablet computer, which they're calling the iPad. Fully customizable, and better than a smartphone or a laptop at browsing, reading e-books, and a "great maps application with support from Google[...]." We're watching for more specs and software information right now, but the general idea is that the device is better than a netbook at just about everything!

Yet another Apple-driven revolution: go!

Specs Update:
  • 9.7" IPS screen
  • 1/2" thick (or thin)
  • 10 hours of battery life
  • "Shut the iPad down, come back in a month and it still has a charge"
  • 16-64 Gigabytes of flash storage
  • Accelerometer and compass
  • Speaker, mic
  • Dock connector
  • It can run all iPhone apps, unmodified, out of the box
