The tech blogs have been buzzing for days about Apple's latest innovation. Rumors have predicted everything from a bigger version of the iPhone to the next must-have tool for students and business people. Well the wait is finally over. Today Apple unveiled the iPad. With a 9.7-inch touch screen display that is only .5-inches thick, this gizmo is small enough to fit into a handbag. It will let users browse the web, play games, watch videos, listen to music, read books and magazine and more. There's even a new app called iBooks that lets users download content from many of the major publishers including HarperCollins, Penguin and Simon & Schuster. All this comes with a hefty price tag, though. The 16GB version with Wi-Fi will set you back $499, while the cost goes up to $629 if you want 3G. Will this slim, lightweight computer replace the Kindle or the Nook—or even paper? You tell me.
