This is the coolest thing ever!

Apple just announced their new product the iPad (click on the image to go their site). As everyone has probably heard it was one of the most anticipated releases of a new gadget in quite some time. And it turns out it was worth the wait. I can't wait to own one of these. It will be great for browsing the web, email, organizing photos, watching movies, listening to music, reading books, navigating, taking notes, and maintaining your calendar and contacts.
It has a 9.7" LED backlit IPS display with a 178 degree viewing angle.
It weighs 1.5 pounds is 0.5" thick.
It has a 10 hour batter life.
It will come with either Wi-Fi 802.11n or 3G for fast internet connectivity
The interface has an onscreen keyboard for typing or you can buy an external keyboard dock.
Comes with either a 16GB, 32GB, or 64GB flash drive
16GB 32GB 64GB
Wi-Fi $499 $599 $699
Wi-Fi+3G $629 $729 $829
I can use this to surf the web and check email on the couch or while traveling. I can watch a movie almost anywhere. It is a ebook reader and so much more.
They start shipping the Wi-Fi versions late March and the 3G in April. I'll probably wait a year if I can stand it just to see what kinds of issues they have and get them worked out first and let the price drop.

Yeah, a really big iPhone minus the phone. Wohoo. Wait so doesn't that make it a big iTouch?
