APPLE does it again ....make way for iPAD

ONE really needs to give this techno junkie "Mr. Setephen "steve" Jobs" a hell lota credit , he has made it a habit to come up wid products which top the charts of our aspirational wanna have product list .... mac's, airbook, iphone,ipod. and now please make way for his latest iPAD widout doubt this neww baby from apples stable is all set to rock the world and like it's tech bros it will rock it hard very hard. 

"So far it really looks like an oversized iPod Touch, which is great"

"iPad" is for consumers who want to take their movies, TV shows, music, games and reading with them, be it around the house or on the go.
 The iPad weighs about 1.5 pounds, is 0.5 inch thin, has a 9.7-inch display and should have a battery life of 10 hours, Jobs said. It uses what he called Apple's own 1GHz A4 chip The tablet has the company's online iTunes Store built into it, as well as YouTube in high-definition.

The tablet uses multi-touch finger gestures and swipes like the iPhone, but the iPad's "larger screen requires less swiping to navigate,"

While many of the tablet's functions — Web surfing, movie watching, music listening — can be handled on netbooks, lighter and relatively inexpensive laptops, Apple isn't viewing its tablet as a laptop without a keyboard. "Apple sees this as a personal media experience that they can create."
The tablet's "most revolutionary impact is on the way people consume media in the home," he said. "You take it from room to room, you dock it next to your bed, it becomes your alarm clock. You dock in the living room, it’s a photo frame and a video server for your TV; you dock it in the kitchen, and it displays your recipes for you."
wid a price band of about 700$ it can be a bit steep for us here in India but sure for people in states and Europe who are lukng fr a product such as kindle it can open new vistas , though coming back to us here in India 700$ might not be the very affordable considering the value for money proposition we expect  it might not be for everyone, maybe it wud sell only in metros BUT then when did Apple signified masses ---- it definitely has never been for everyone, so for mere mortals keep dreaming on , keep on iDREAMING.
