Apple iPad

Apple iPad Launching in NZ first

The Apple iPad is set to launch worldwide in late March 2010 starting with the WiFi version which will be followed by the 3G + WiFi version in April. As with the iPhone 3G launch and the iPhone 3GS after it, the Apple iPad will be sold in New Zealand first before the rest of the world. From other similarly priced devices, the iPad should be starting at about NZ$799 which is a really good price. That places it smack in the middle of Netbook-ville. I wouldn’t wait for the 3G version which is considerably more expensive since I’m either at home or at university 90% of the time, breathing WiFi. Besides, NZ 3G plans are really bad, not at all practical for the ordinary human being. (more…)

Engadget just got a hold of the new iPad and took it for a spin. Here’s the video taken at the Apple Launch Event for the iPad.

It looks really awesome and operation is fluid. Except for the bad points, the Apple iPad is a winner. Can’t wait to get my hands on it myself.
