    AN FRANCISCO - APPLE chief executive Steve Jobs unveiled a new touchscreen tablet computer on Wednesday dubbed the 'iPad', seeking to carve out a niche between the laptop and the smartphone.

    'We want to kick off 2010 by introducing a truly magical and revolutionary product,' said Jobs, who underwent a liver transplant last year and was making just his second public appearance since September.

    The long-awaited iPad has a 9.7-inch (24.6-centimetre) colour screen and resembles an oversized iPod Touch or iPhone. It is 0.5 inches (1.3-cm) thick, weighs 1.5 pounds (0.7 kilogrammes) and comes with 16, 32, or 64 gigabytes of flash memory.

    The price tag for the device, Apple's first major product since the iPhone three years ago, came in less than expected by most technology analysts.

    The cheapest iPad model, with 16G of memory, is US$499 (S$700) while the most expensive - which includes 3G wireless connectivity and 64G of memory - costs US$829.

    Apple said it would start shipping the iPad, which has a virtual keyboard but can also be hooked up to an external keyboard, within 60 days, making them available worldwide in late March. The 3G version will reach the market in late April. -- AFP

    Prob would hit the spot for photographers who want tethered shooting outdoors, larger screen to preview photos in and on the go storage/viewing device for travel.. If it does support those functions..

    Storage device, probably the 64GB one. Maybe the 32GB one. But definitely not the 16GB one. Unless its a really short holiday.
