What is an iPad? The iPad, is larger in size but similar in design to Apple's popular iPhone. CEO Steve Jobs on Wednesday said "so much more intimate than a laptop and so much more capable than a smart phone."
The iPad has a 9.7-inch touch screen, is a half-inch thick, weighs 1.5 pounds and comes with 16, 32 or 64 gigabytes of flash memory storage. It comes with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity built in. Jobs said the device has a battery that lasts 10 hours and can sit for a month on standby without needing a charge.
The basic iPad models will cost $499, $599 and $699, depending on the storage size, when it comes out worldwide in March.
