UPDATE - Here is a video promo for the "Ipad" that has surfaced:
Here is video of Apple's Steve Jobs unveiling their new "Ipad" device today. It is a tablet-type computer that seeks to be a whole new category of device that can do multiple things in a superior way. There has been tremendous buzz about the unveiling of the new device.
Calling it "way better than a laptop, way better than a phone," Apple CEO Steve Jobs unveiled his company's long-awaited iPad tablet-style multi-touch device Wednesday.
The device weighs just 1.5 pounds -- lighter than any netbook, Jobs noted -- and sports a 9.7-inch display. It also includes a 1GHz Apple-built ARM A4 processor which includes the CPU and graphics.
"Everything is one chip, and it screams," Jobs said.
He also touted that device gets 10 hours battery life watching video, and has a one-month standby charge. It will come in capacities of 16GB to 64GB of flash storage.
As expected, the device also can connect to the existing App Store. It was revealed that current iPhone and iPod touch applications will work on the iPad. With just a tap, existing applications can be run in full-screen mode.
Jobs noted that the hardware is a "dream to type on," and demonstrated how to read, view media and content and access applications on the hardware.
It includes calendar, address book, maps and music applications built-in. It also connects to the iTunes store.
"You can discover music, you can purchase it," Jobs said. "Movies, TV shows, podcasts, iTunes University -- everything built right in."
It also has access to YouTube the streaming service's high-definition streaming content.
"Using this thing is remarkable. It's so much more intimate than a laptop, and it's so much more capable than a smartphone," Jobs said. . . . MORE
