Apple Introduces All-New iWork for iPad

It includes an an all-new, iPad-friendly user interface for Pages, Numbers, and Keynote, with popup galleries. Numbers also has a distinct, virtual numeric keypad.

It makes sense they have iWork, they're going to want some Office compatibility and light productivity to make the case for why you'd want an iPad instead of a netbook but... TiPb still wonders how easy it will be to input significant content via the iPad. We're willing to be convinced, we're jut not there yet.

Apple Introduces iBooks Apps -- Stands on Amazon's Shoulders!

As part of their iPad announcement today, Apple introduced a new app called iBooks (hey, there's that old name!) which they said stands on the shoulders of Amazon to go a little further.

The initial GUI looks a lot like the iPhone ebook app Classics [iTunes link]. As rumored, $14.99 for a new "hardcover" book is the selling price.

You can tap to change pages or swipe, and readers can choose their own font and size from a small list including Baskerville, Cochin, Palatino, Times, and Verdana.

Apple Introduces iPad Tablet!

As widely expected, Apple's "latest creation" is a tablet device called... the iPad! Here's the official press release, and some details from TiPb's take:

It looks like a giant, wide, iPod touch with a gorgeous display and enough graphics power to throw around HD video and handle very slick UI elements without any hint of lag.

Also shown off were Maps (including street view), iTunes LP and iTunes Extras, and Email, Calendar, and iPod functions that look like the iPhone but with a massive functionality boost from the Mac side, including pervasive use of popups.

It will run virtually all iPhone apps, unmodified. Pixel accurate, or via pixel doubling. iPad specific SDK ships TODAY!

  • .5 inches thin
  • 1.5 lbs
  • 9.7 inch IPS display
  • 1024x768 (Old school!)
  • Capacitive multitouch
  • 1GHz proc Apple A4 chip (PA Semi!)
  • 16GB, 32GB, 64GB
  • 802.11n WiFi
  • BT 2.1
  • Compass
  • 10 hrs battery life
  • 1 month standby
  • Running iPhone 3.2 OS

Images after the break, more as this develops!

Alan Kay - Tablet-size iPhone Will "Rule the World"

9to5mac points us to a GigaOm interview with computer and GUI pioneer Alan Kay that says:

“When the Mac first came out, Newsweek asked me what I [thought] of it. I said: Well, it’s the first personal computer worth criticizing. So at the end of the presentation, Steve came up to me and said: Is the iPhone worth criticizing? And I said: Make the screen five inches by eight inches, and you’ll rule the world.”

Just under 2 hours and they'll take their shot!
