Tommorow, Friday 28th May 2010 marks the official launch of the Apple iPad in Australia.
The iPad has already proved a massive success in the USA, where the iPad shifted over a million units in less than a month, and where stock shortages have caused delays of it’s launch in other regions, including Australia.
The Apple iPad is a Tablet device, enabling users to browse the web, check emails, play games, read E-books downloaded from the iTunes store, play music, watch videos and more.
The iPad features a large 25cm touch-screen for interaction with the device and display, and comes in two models including a wi-fi only model, and a 3G+WiFi model. The 3G model enables users to connect to a mobile broadband network to download data when they’re out and about. Both models come in 16GB, 32GB and 64GB varieties.
Users of the iPhone or iPod touch will feel at home with the iPad’s familiar interface, but will delight at the extra screen real-estate and a more enjoyable viewing experience on the larger screen. The iPad also offers a unique gaming experience with use of the in-built accelerometer, where users will move and rotate the iPad to perform in-game actions, like steering a car.
The iPad weighs in at 730 grams (3G+WiFi models) and is the perfect portable entertainment device that you can carry with you, but won’t have to squint at the screen.
The iPad launches tomorrow, and will be available through authorised retailers and the Apple Online Store.
ONE currently does not stock Apple iPhone or iPad devices, however watch this space, as ONE will soon be introducing iPad 3G Data plans, which comes with a unique micro-SIM Card that is required by the iPad 3G model to connect to mobile broadband.
