Apple iPad A4 CPU detailed

Apple iPad A4 CPU detailed

There was so much information offered yesterday when the iPad was unveiled by Apple that it was a bit overwhelming. One of the key items of the iPad that didn’t get as much talk time on stage as some of the other features was the Apple A4 processor. The one thing that Apple was specific on was that the processor was its own silicon.

Certainly some of the biggest tech news this year has been the official unveiling of the iPad by Apple yesterday. The device looks pretty darn cool to me, though some complain the iPad didn’t live up to the hype.

Apple iPad video galore: Keynote & Hands-On

Apple's iPad is official, but you can't get your hands on one for another couple of months (three if you want integrated 3G).  The next best thing, then, is lashings of video, and happily we have just that for you.  Apple have put their official keynote video online, and after the cut we've got almost twenty minutes of our own hands-on footage.

iPad 3G data plan the real star of Apple’s show?

iPad 3G data plan the real star of Apple’s show?

Apple have never been impressed with netbooks - they've consistently criticized the budget ultraportables and maintained that they have no interest in producing one - but with the Apple iPad Steve Jobs basically declared war on netbooks.  After opening with a snub - "netbooks aren't better at anything - they're just cheap laptops" - Jobs went on to rub salt in the wound with the launch of a 3G data plan that's half what netbook buyers are currently expected to pay.

Apple iPad accessories: Keyboard Dock, case & more

Apple didn't just announced the iPad - they also brought along some official accessories to use with it. Two docking stands, a pair of adapters and a case will go on sale alongside the iPad, and of the four the most interesting is probably the keyboard dock. That holds the tablet in portrait orientation, and provides a full-sized Apple keyboard on which to type.

iPad Hands-on Gallery and Video

What can we say: it feels even thinner in the metal than it looks in the photos. We've just had a hands-on play with the Apple iPad and it's mighty impressive. Speed and screen quality aren't in short supply, with the tablet - that, thanks to all that metal and glass, has a reasonable heft to it - whipping through the customized iPhone OS.

SlashGear’s Apple liveblog underway!

It's January 27th 2010 and SlashGear is outside the Yerba Buena Center - looking pretty darn resplendent in its paint-spattered decor - waiting to bring you all the news from Apple's latest media event.  Biggest expectation today is a new iPad tablet; we've supposedly seen shots of the display and shots of the casing, now all we need is Steve Jobs to take to the stage and make it official.

Apple tablet casing leaks?

Apple tablet casing leaks?

There's a little over an hour until Apple's Steve Jobs takes to the stage to - we're presuming - announce the new Apple tablet, but to tide you over how about some purported leaked images of the slate's casing.  Briefly showing up on a Chinese messageboard, and then promptly deleted, these shots show an indecently thin chassis together with several cut-outs and notches presumably for charging, buttons and headphones.
