All I can say is IPAD is a Cross between “Amazon Kindle” and “Iphone 3GS”!!

Since I own both Kindle and Iphone 3GS, I did not see any necessity to possess I-PAD! 🙂

Check this video for I-PAD features!!

Apple’s I-TABLET unveiled!

27 Jan
The much awaited suspensed version of Apple’s I-Tablet(I-Slate or I-Pad) was released today @ 10 am in California by Steve.
Excerpts from the presentation are given below: Courtesy: Live
Steve says “Good morning, and thank you all for coming today. We want to kick off 2010 by introducing a truly magical and revolutionary new product.”
“Before we get to that, I’ve got a few updates.” Chuckles. “First: iPods. A few weeks ago we sold our 250 millionth iPod.” Big applause.
 “Before we get to that [the tablet], I want to go back to 1991. Apple invented the modern laptop computer with our PowerBooks. The first laptop with a TFT screen, that pushed the keyboard up and had an integrated pointing device.”

Email with a giant on-screen keyboard: “It’s a dream to type on.”

Photos: “Flick through them, it’s a wonderful way to share your photos. Built in a calendar. Address book, great maps app with Google Maps.”

“That’s how simple mail is. If I want to reply to a message, up pops this gorgeous keyboard.” Steve is typing with two hands on his lap — not using thumbs. Very interesting.

 Photo scrubber bar at the bottom. “It’s really wonderful.”

iTunes store. The UI on this thing is pretty intense, so far. Everything is familiar, but it’s all totally different from iPhone and OS X — this is a big launch for Apple. As if you hadn’t already noticed.

That is video on the iPad. So that’s a bit of an overview as to what the iPad can do.” Big applause. “Watching it is nothing like getting one in your hands.”

“It’s 0.5-inches thin, weighs just 1.5 pounds. Thinner and lighter than any netbook. 9.7-inch IPS display.”
“iPad is powered by our own custom silicon. Our own chip. It’s called the A4, and it screams.” 1GHz. 16, 32, or 64GB of flash storage. “It’s got the latest in wireless: 802.11n, WiFi, and Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR.”
“What’s the battery life on this remarkable device?” Pauses. “We’ve been able to achieve 10 hours of battery life.”

Showing Facebook app: “This is the app you know and love.” Tap on the 2x button, it scales the app up to full-screen.

“We think that we’ve captured the essence of reading a newspaper… all in a native app.”
“It captures the essence of a newspaper, but it’s so much more.” Reading syncs to the iPhone app. Inline video clips. So awesome.

Next up: an app called Brushes, an art browser and painting app.

Showing Need For Speed Shift.

Touch and accelerator-enabled (of course). Tap the mirror to look behind. “A game like NFS really pushes the limits, so we wanted to show you just how fast this can really go.”

 Our new app is called iBooks.

 “It looks like a bookshelf — and there’s a button to a store. It’s an iBook Store to allow you to discover, purchase, and download e-books right on your iPad.”

“We use the ePub format, the most popular open book format in the world, and I’m very excited about this. We think the iPad is going to make a terrific e-book reader not just for popular books, but for textbooks as well.”
“Now, something very exciting: iWork.”

 I think we’ve done some amazing and remarkable work. A completely new version of Keynote, Pages, and Numbers…”

Navigating slides — holding down slides rearranges it. Tap multiple slides then do the move brings them as a bundle (neato!).

Showing the spreadsheet-centric soft keyboard. Auto-fields and sums showing as inferred. Pretty neat for a spreadsheet. Then again, it’s still a spreadsheet.

Showing forms, too. “That’s a quick look at iWork on the iPad.” Applause. “They show the immense potential of the iPad. Apps like this are amazing, so what are we going to charge for this? $9.99 each.” 
Compatible with Mac versions, and “you can easily connect to a projector with a small cable.”
“I’d like to talk for a minute about iTunes. The iPad syncs over USB with iTunes exactly like an iPhone or iPod touch. So when you sync, you sync everything. Photos, music, movies, TV shows, contacts, calendars, bookmarks, apps…”

This is a real benefit. Now, I’d like to talk about wireless networking. Every iPad has the latest and greatest WiFi. But we’re going to have models with 3G built in as well.”“Now, what does it cost for the data plans? In the US cellphone companies typically charge $60 per month for a data plan for a laptop.”“We’ve got a real breakthrough here. Two awesome plans. The first is up to 250MB per month — a fair bit of data, most people will get by on that — for just $14.99.” Bit applause.

AT&T’s throwing in free WiFi hotspot use, too.” Great, because their network certainly won’t be working well enough to depend on this. “There’s no contract — it’s pre-paid. You can cancel at any time.”

“I’m thrilled to announce to you that the iPad pricing starts not at $999, but at $499

Within about 90 days we’ll be shipping 3G models. Soon you’ll be able to get an iPad in your hands for just $499.”“We’ve got some great accessories as well — let me show you a few.” Dock!Keyboard dock!

“When you really need to do a lot of typing, this is the way to go. If you’ve got to write War and Peace, just plug your iPad in.” Third accessory is “a really nice case.”

“It just feels right to hold the internet in your hand — when you see something, you just reach out and tap it. You don’t think about it… you just DO.” 

An awesome product between the laptop and the smartphone. The bar is pretty high.” “We think we’ve got the goods. And because we’ve shipped so many iPhones and iPod touches, there are already over 75 million people who know how to use the iPad.

Users have downloaded over 12 billion products. We are at scale and we are ready for the iPad. To sum it up: it’s our most advanced technology in a magical and revolutionary device, at an unbelievable price. We think this is going to be a really great combination.”

TSo we’ve got a hands-on area, we’d like you to get your hands on an iPad. When you feel all this power and this much fun and the internet in your hands, you’ll never want to go back.” That’s it!

Iphone 3GS or Nexus One?

13 Jan

“Apple Iphone 3GS or Nexus One”?? Which one is the Best?! Probably,the Comparison table below will help you decide!

iPhone 3GS vs Nexus One

The recent Bad Reviews about Google’s Nexus One doing the rounds are:

1>The touch screen functionality is not as good as Apple Iphone 3GS!
2>The ETF (Early Termination Fee) is about $200 which is extremely high compared to other phones.
3>Google has also imposed an additional $350 ETF if Nexus One owners decide to end their service after the 14-day trial period is over but before four months have passed will be hit with upwards of $550 in fees — more than if you bought the phone outright from the start
4>Customer satisfaction was pathetic when few customers called Google’s Customer Care with Nexus One issues.

Things lacking in Nexus One in comparison with Apple Iphone:

1>Like the Droid, the Nexus One doesn’t do hardware encryption, meaning that most Microsoft Exchange shops will refuse to support either model (unless you can convince your company to downgrade its default security policy). The iPhone 3GS does support Exchange’s default policy settings, which require device encryption.

2>The Android OS also can’t handle moving purchased software titles from Android Market into the devices’ Flash RAM storage (which on HTC and Motorola devices, like other phones developed for Windows Mobile, is provided primarily on removable SD RAM cards). This results in a significant limitation for developers and for users who want to run sophisticated mobile apps such as games.

3> Nexus One doesn’t have anything comparable to the iPhone’s Dock Connector, which has given birth to an ecosystem of iPhone and iPod related peripherals. Instead, the Nexus One only provides a mini USB connector.

4>The iPhone 3GS also supplies a consistent multitouch user interface that is used throughout it bundled apps. Google has only added limited support for this in the Android OS, and apps that can make the most use of “pinch to zoom” type features don’t consistently offer it to the user.

5>The Nexus One also lacks the iPhone 3GS’ automatic focus, white balance, and exposure set by the user’s touch.
