Apple has introduced iPad, a device for browsing the web, reading and sending email, enjoying photos, watching videos, listening to music, playing games, reading e-books and much more.
iPad's high-resolution multi-touch display lets users physically interact with applications and content. iPad is 0.5-inch thick and weighs 1.5 pounds - thinner and lighter than any notebook or netbook, Apple pointed out.
iPad includes 12 new apps designed especially for the iPad, and will run almost all of the over 140,000 apps in the App Store.
iPad will be available in late March starting at US$499.
