  • The New : Apple iPad

    New gadget released into the world market. Since this mobile computer hasn’t come to Indonesia yet till i wrote this article, so we just can get a simple preview of the Apple iPad. What do you think when you firstly hear about this product? Don’t ask too much, this is just a revolution of a tablet internet which have so many weaknesses than you thought (if you thought that it’s a tablet PC).

    I prefer to call it the big version of iPod Touch. The gadget that allow us to enjoy any kind of multimedia files, bundled with browser and connectivity tools that packaged in Apple OS (like the Apple iPhone did). The glance came with the large of 9,7” Touch-screen display, the slim design, and the nice look like the iPhone.

    As I’ve said before, this is not a tablet PC – or even a netbook. This gadget is only gave us the touchy features of iBook reader (seems like e-book, but not at all. Because iBook is Apple’s format for their electronic books), internet browsing, multimedia player, and another compliment features to captures the additional excitements.

    Pay for it, so you can have the prestige and the sophisticated of a limited functions gadget to show to your friends.
