Describing it as a "a magical and revolutionary product," Apple CEO Steve Job unveiled his company's iPad device, a touchscreen tablet computer that combines elements from the Apple iPhone and laptop computers.

Technical details:

  • LED-backlit, IPS display
  • "Multi-touch" touch-screen interface
  • Weighs 1.5 pounds
  • Half inch thick
  • Up to 10 hours of battery life, with one month standby
