Apple have tonight announced the new iPad!

Some features from Apple regarding the new iPad is that you can surf the Internet and watch each homepage on the screen, and you use your finger to navigate. Surfing the web will be more like reading a book than looking at a computer screen.

You can also check your e-mail and have split screen view showing both your open e-mail and the messages you got in the inbox. As with the iPhone you can turn the iPad and the page adapts and fills the screen. Photos show up directly in the mail and you could save it right away.

iPad will work with e-mail providers as AOL, Yahoo! mail, Gmail, Hotmail and MobileMe.

iPad can handle your photos quite nicely watch slide show, zoom in and out and similar stuff like that, doesn’t really seem to be out of the ordinary really wih that feature.

You can also watch movies with the iPad both HD, TV shows, music videos and podcasts. Since the buttons are built on the screen the movie completly fills the screen.

Talking about movies iPad also supports YouTube and seem to get a quite nice feature to shift through the movies. And of course it supports YouTube HD movies.

With the iPad there comes an iPod app so you can listen to your music and browse by albums, song, artist and just use your finger and flick through the different music. When you play a song the album art show up in full-screen and you can listen to your music through the built-in speakers or with wired or Bluetooth wireless headphones.

You can also go to iTunes Store and browse and buy music, podcasts, rent movies and alot more and you can also sync the iPad with your Mac or PC.

And talking about apps and Stores the iPad will run about 140 000 apps from the App store and there is also new apps already and more on the way that is designed for the iPad.

There is also the iBooks app where you can read and buy books. There will be books from more or less all genres and when you buy a book it will show on your bookshelf. The high-resolution and LED-backlit screen makes it easy to read even in low light.

There is also more features as a calendar, you will be able to look at maps satellite as well as in street view seems a bit like google maps, you can write notes and of course search for apps and files on your iPad.

      Yes it seems quite nice and the price seems to be quite ok with most people as well.

      It will be really interesting to see how it develops and how the reviews will be.

      But I’m not sure on how people who has Iphone or Ipod touch think it is worth buying since it seems to be quite similar. It doesn’t seem to be a gadget you use on the fly and having it in your pocket like the Iphone. I think most people will probably will use it more when they travel and maybe use it some at work as well
