Why I want my iPAD

After all the speculation and rumours, I want my iPad. Goodbye netbook... Hello iPad.

From yesterdays list of 10 must have features... well, need I say more.


It's a half-inch thick and weighs just 1.5 pounds, with a 9.7-inch capacitive multi-touchscreen.

A 10-hour battery life and a month of standby.

16, 32, or 64GB sizes, with a 30-pin Dock connector, a speaker, a microphone, Bluetooth, 802.11n WiFi and optional 3G, as well as an accelerometer and a compass.

Every iPad is unlocked and comes with a GSM "micro-SIM," so you can use it abroad.

It starts at $499 for 16GB, 32GB for $599, and $699 64GB.

The WiFi-only model will ship in 60 days, and the 3G models will come in 90.


The Canadian Model will not be available till June

10 Things I Want From My Apple Tablet.

Speculation is coming to an end tomorrow... so these are the ten things I want from my Apple Tablet, ISlate or Ipad, besides being addictive, fun to use, with you at all times and be the gadget to be seen with.

1 Multitouch 10" Screen
What would my tablet be without multitouch? Apple delivers an intuitive and responsive multitouch touch experience to my iPhone and the iPod touch. I want multitouch capability from my tablet.

2 Virtual Keyboard
No troubles with my iPhone's virtual keyboard, it makes sense for my Apple tablet. With a full multitouch display, it makes sense to have a virtual keyboard.

3 Full Remote Connectivity
WIFI with N draft, 3G, 4G or HSPA... wireless connectivity is an absolute must for my Apple Tablet to connect from anywhere.

4 BlueTooth Integration
Put on my stereo Bluetooth earbuds and watch my favorite movie on the tablet — anytime, anyplace without wires!

5 Awesome Battery
Dreaming of a 5 day battery life between charges. But, really, willing to settle for 8 hours.

6 Apple App Store
Like it does with the iPhone, Apple App Store needs to be a key application in its tablet... more apps woout!

7 Mail
Mail is a must-have by design, need to access e-mail on my Apple Tablet.

8 USB Ports
My Apple Tablet needs a USB port for expandability. As required.

9 SD Card Slot
Again, SD card slot for expandability and storage.

10 Price
Must be priced Under $600.00
