What is the iPad?

The iPad is a computer developed by Apple based on the touch screen. The official announcement of the production came on January 27th, 2010 and is considered as belonging to a category between smart phones and laptop.

It is similar in function to the smaller and less powerful iPhone or iPod touch and runs a modified version of the same operating system (iPhone OS), with a redesigned interface to take advantage of the larger screen. The iPad has a LED backlit touch screen 9.7 inch (25 cm), 16 to 64 (GB) of memory, Bluetooth, and a cable to sync with iTunes connected with wired peripherals.

Since the main function of the iPad is to read electronic books (e-books) from the new e-book store (ibookstore) Apple's iPad has been compared with Amazon's Kindle and Barnes & Noble's Nook.
