According to Jobs, is to be a mobile video-watching, book-reading, game-playing, photo-perusing, music-listening, web-surfing, and email-emailing device. It looks like a big, half-inch-thick, 1.5-pound iPhone - although with a more rectangular aspect ratio - even down to the single circular button below the display.

Its 9.7-inch display is significantly bigger than the seven-incher that some pundits had predicted. You can customize the iPad's desktop images - if a term such as "desktop" is not too passé for the ultra-mobile 21st century. Like the iPhone and countless other handhelds, the iPad works in both portrait and landscape modes.

3G connectivity is optional. Although all iPads will ship unlocked, Apple has what Jobs called "a breakthrough deal" with AT&T (GSM) in the US - not Verizon (CDMA), which had been rumored - that will allow up to 250MB of data per month for $14.99 and unlimited data for $29.99. There will, however, be no contract required. International deals will be available beginning in June.

Pricing begins at $499 - that'll get you a non-3G iPad with 16GB of storage. A 32GB version costs $599, and a 64GB version, $699. Want 3G? That'll be $130 more. The non-3G models will ship in two months; the 3G versions will take an additional month. In addition to a charging dock, a keyboard-equipped dock will also be available for those users who don't want to be limited to the multi-touch display's soft keyboard, although pricing wasn't provided.
