  • Apple's iPad Takes a Byte Out of Travel Boredom

    2010-01-28

    If you’ve turned on your T.V., computer or radio this week, chances are, you’ve seen Apple's latest creation, the iPad tablet. The clipboard-sized product has garnered a great deal of attention as a result of its clean, simple design and with prices starting below $500, the iPad is shaping up to be one of the must-have travel gadgets of 2010.

    The iPad has been proposed as a sort of middle ground between smartphone technology and a full laptop. The 1.5 pound tablet boasts a 9.7-inch LED-backlit display set up with a highly precise touch screen similar to those currently used on the iPhone and the iPod touch.

    It can use any of the more than 140,000 applications currently available for Apple's other devices and is capable of connecting to the internet through either a 3G network or WiFi connection. In addition to storing up to 64 gigs of music, movies and e-books, the device comes with an enhanced GPS Maps function that allows a user to search for locations by address, name or type of business.

    The iPad - which comes with enhanced email, calendars and address books - will be available in March.
