The new iPad, apple's latest product, is due to release in 60 days. A tablet computer that will connect to the internet through WiFi or a contract with ATT, the iPad appears to be like an over-sized iPod Touch. The iPad weighs 1.5 lbs and is 0.5" thick. Apple reports that it will be able to access regular App Store games, and they plan on introducing a new literature version of iTunes. Users will be able to shop for and read books directly on the tablet, to rival Amazon's Kindle. The iPad will have a 10 hour battery life. It is set to be priced at $499.
Tom's personal opinion? If you are really interested in it, wait for the next version, as it will undoubtedly be better, and this one lacks a flash player.
