So Apple unveiled its tablet computer today.  Called the iPad it turns out that this supposed to be revolutionary tablet computer is really a giant iPod.  Ok that is a little critical but not to far from the truth.  Yes the iPad will function as an e-reader, and the iPods and iPhones won’t do that, also the screen size is giant when compared to it’s smaller “cousins”.  But from what I have seen the functionality will be very similar to the Ipod/iPhone.  This an not a tablet computer. You could say that it is an ultra portable.  Now with all that being said I do think there is a market for this product, do to the fact that it does have a quite large screen, and many usable apps including an e-reader and movie playing capabilities. Also depending on the particular model the iPad will support 3G connectivity for better wireless experiences.  Lets put it this way if i was given one I wouldn’t reject it.

After further reading I have discovered the the iPod and the iPhone to do e-reader functionality.  I appoligize for this, so I guess the only real difference between the iPod/iPhone and iPad are screen size.  Interesting.
