Apple reveals new gadget: the iPad

Apple CEO Steve Jobs says users will be able to use the iPad’s touch screen to email, store photos, navigate maps, play video games and read electronic books. The device is “so much more intimate than a laptop, and so much more capable than a smartphone,” Jobs said during his presentation. The iPad runs on a one gigahertz chip and comes with 16, 32 or 64 gigabytes of flash memory storage. It also has Wi-Fi and Bluetooth capabilities and contains an accelerometer and a proximity sensor. The device is about 1.3 centimetres thick, has a 25-centimetre screen and weighs about half a pound.
