Apple launch iPad …

Early last week Apple announced the launch of the new ipad. We here at Big In Ibiza always get excited when a new gadget is launched and the ipad is no exception. So does it live up to its expectations?

The so called “tablet PC” looks pretty cool. It boasts features such as Email, Web Browsing, ibook, Photos, Videos, Maps, You Tube, Contacts on the very sleek and sexy high-resolution, 9.7-inch LED-backlit IPS display. It weighs  just 1.5 pounds and is 0.5 inch thin.

It also has a built-in 802.11n, which means it can connect to the fastest Wi-Fi networks.With a few taps it can connect to any Wi-Fi Network. It also boasts Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR Technology, allowing it to connect to devices such as wireless headphones and wireless keyboards.  It wil also be available as a 3G model for internet on the go with superfast data speeds up to 7.2 Mbps.3.

As for music,  it features of course as an  ipod  on a large 9.7inch scale.  You can listen to your music with the built-in speaker or heaphones. It also allows access to Itunes with 1 tap, giving access to all the msuic, movies, ibooks, tv shows and of couse APPs on the store.   The iPad is available with a choice of 16GB, 32GB, or 64GB of flash storage,4 giving you lots of room for your photos, movies, music, apps, and more.

Some have called the ipad “a stretched-out” ipod touch, so is the ipad a bit of an anti-climax?  It is by no means a cheap device,  starting price of  $400 in the US and a battery life of 10 hours.  Its definitly going on my Wish List….We shall see!
