The Apple iPad

Apple has revealed the first steps in its iPlan for stepping into the world of digital publishing. At a press event in San Francisco today, Steve Jobs introduced us to the iPad, his company’s hotly anticipated entry into the tablet market that is set to release worldwide in 60 days. Weighing in at a whopping 1.5 pounds the screen is the same size as the Kindle DX (9.7 inches) , with touch capabilities like the Nook, but beyond that, the visual e-reading experience seems completely different–not surprising coming from Apple. The New York Times took center stage at the iPad debut to show off its own application, I heard about its electronic appeal on NPR Radio. The NYT app brought the newspaper format to life with in-article videos and without a lot of ads. Nice!
