iPad prices

with one comment

Wow. Before the launch of the iPad some people pegged it at $1000 USD but the actual prices it came up with was way lower!

Steve Jobs said they have “ambitious” design and engineering targets and “agressive” with the price limitation.. (or something like that)

so there.. the price for the iPad starts at $499 USD for the 16 GB Wifi..

Check out, they have updated their site to include the newest product, the iPad

On another note, some people it is a “name FAIL”. I heard one women said that she’s not very comfortable saying the word “iPad” because it always reminds her of feminine pads! I thought It was going to be called an iSlate or simply Apple Tablet. But then again the “i” should be there for Jonathan Ives (maybe?)

The functions? we shall review it on a different post.. But it seems like it is just a bigger brother of an iphone.

It will be available worldwide in 60days. Based on last nights unveiling of the iPad.. what can you say about it?

Check and or your favorite tech blog for more info.

iPad. Apple’s newest product.

Finally. It is settled. Apple releases a tablet. And it is called an iPad.

It functions like a very large iPhone! I am not sure how much it costs though, but it looks nice. Yes nice. But I am not sure if I need one though for all the things it can do..

The Apple Tablet, iSlate?

leave a comment »

It is being talked about everywhere in the internet. From my usual Gizmodo, Engadget, Macrumors, and other tech bloggin sites.. hell even PC World mentions it, and deemed it a “thing to beat” even though no one knows its functions are.

Today, Apple will release (or is said to release), the fabled Apple Tablet. Will it be called the iSlate? or simply Apple Tablet?

What is true though is a good number of people are waiting for it. Maybe not all will buy, but mostly just to know what the Cupertino company and Steve Jobs can deliver.

Microsoft was a disappointment at CES. They did not release a tablet-like product. They however showed products by other companies, like the one from Archos, and others that are running on Windows.

I guess where Apple gets the upperhand among other companies that build these products. Apple is good at making its software running on its own hardware.

An officemate of mine told me just days ago that my Macbook Pro looks so beautiful and modern. I smiled and agreed with her. Although mine was bought last July 2007. 😉
