Well the iPad from Apple is here, it’s a new device that sets somewhere between smart phones and laptop computers. And we wanted to go through some of the features you can see it’s got almost to 10 inch screen I think its 9.7 inches and if you’re thinking it looks a lot like a giant iPhone or an iPod touch you’re pretty well correct. It’s actually using the exact same operating system with the few little tweaks. And it does allows you to use the over 150,000 different apps that are available for it says smaller cozen. It is such a different with the largest range. This particular one is 16 gigabytes and it does have a 32 and the 64 gigabyte version as well and this is the Wi-Fi version. This going to be two different models out the Wi-Fi obviously connect with your home or office wireless internet network or you know coffee shops there port or what to have you. And they’re also coming out with the 3G wireless version as well but not only has the Wi-Fi but a data connection as well you can get the plan from your local cell company. You can see with the extra real estate base here so it’s going to be a lot easier to do certain things. Down on the bottom we’ve got the familiar apps like Safari, Mail, Photos and the iPod. I just looking on the iPod screen and you can see it almost looks like iTunes that you’d see on your Mac or your PC it’s got enough real estate on the screen too display all the different playlist and songs. And that’s the nice thing you can actually create playlist with this iPod fairly easily because you’ve got all that extra room. The email is kind of the nice feature, and I actually find I used this iPad at work for going to meetings and what I have because now was connected and it’s so easy to still access my email but even take notes to see on the screen I can scroll all my different emails that I have and will scrolls over here and reads the full HTML emails with all the graphics in what to have you and very easy to respond as well, as far as the typing back it’s got the on screen keyboard if you tilted the other way does heave the accelerometer so it will enlarge the keyboard too. With the built in Bluetooth you can even hook up a wireless keyboard to the iPad so it will makes even easier to type and I have found that most of the Bluetooth keyboard I’ve tried so far that will be on the Apple one but other brands work quite well but what makes this interesting is that you know obviously you’ve got all those features that you will be able to use the same types of apps but if the apps develop specifically for the iPad that I think will take it to a whole new level but before I can get there the same look at the web browsing experience with all that extra space it so easy to navigate around web pages now. I’ve got our web page up here and you can I can scroll through it that one going to close to the certain areas here I can just double click and it will also play a lot of the Youtube type videos as well. You know for a book this is kind of a cool thing and this is an eReader now as well iTunes has a iBooks which is nap for this device that allows you to download hard cover and soft cover nobles whether they’re fiction or a non-fiction right now we need a few up here but you can see a very crisps and clear on the screen a very easy to read. If again you do turn it on it side it daggles to a double page format and the nice thing to up on the corner here I can even enlarge the font and have a little hard time reading it. And the other feature too is that when you start looking to things like newspapers and magazines so for example will find the USD today app and pretty well most of the publications now are developing specific apps for the iPad and it’s so easy to go through all the different types of stories and see all the pictures and just double click into that and it comes right upon screen and then I can even flip to the other stories as well. This is from Apple is the iPad is the next generation to digital devices is it right for well? You’ve got to try one now and I think it kind of bridges the gap between work and entertainment and great for game playing too.
