The Apple iPad announced

January 28, 2010

One of the more anticipated items in the computing world was yesterday’s announcement of the Apple iPad, the next device from Apple.  The best way to think about it is probably as a large format (7.5″ x 9.5″) iPod Touch, with a few major additional features:  wireless access (optional), productivity software (Powerpoint/Keynote, Pages, & Excel/Sheets), and the ability to read e-books with its own e-book store.  Brief summary here.

This probably isn’t a breakthrough innovation for the library, but it may be for publishing (time will tell).  It’s also worth thinking about along with implementation of the Kindle and other mobile devices.
