Apple released their newest device today, the iPad.
A few first impressions:
- The price point is very good (starting at $499)
- The apps look pretty cool
- The iBook store may kill the Amazon Kindle
- It claims 10 hours of battery life
- You can run it on wifi OR buy a data plan
- The data plan is reasonable at $15-30/mo., with no contract required
- There’s no camera
- GPS only comes with a data connection
- It runs one app at a time
- It will be hard to wait until March!
