The iPad from Apple

The newest and most exciting tablet computer is the iPad.  It comes from Apple who is a fantastic marketer as seen by all the hype and excitement that has surrounded the iPad’s launch this week.  It is designed for gaming, internet browsing and reading books and newspapers in a new and funky way.

It runs using the iPhone operating system which has been modified, and to control it you use the LCD which is sensitive to your fingers which you use instead of the old traditional stylus we were use to for the old versions of tablet computers. As far as applications go there are specific applications written for the iPad which includes e-book reading software.

To use the internet the iPad connects through 3G or Wi-Fi and to sync your iPad with your personal computer for the purposes of iTunes, use a USB cable.
