Apple iPad launch: The first specs
There's some interesting omissions in the specs of the new Apple tablet, the iPad. Here's an overview of the hardware
The long-anticipated tablet, and Apple CEO Steve Jobs has let us in on some of the specs.
The iPad is 13mm (0.5 inches) thin and weighs 680g. It boasts a 9.7-inch IPS capacitive touchscreen. It isn't 16:9, despite showing widescreen high-definition films and YouTube videos.
Inside is Apple's own A4 1GHz chip. There's 16, 32 or 64GB of flash storage built-in. 802.11n Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR are built-in, with 3G an optional extra. Jobs pulled up his own location, but that seems to just be via Wi-Fi rather than GPS.
Other features include an accelerometer, compass, speaker and microphone, but no cameras. Jobs claims 10 hours of battery life, and over a month on standby.
