If you're looking for a great iPad game to play this weekend, then look no further. Legendary title, Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic is half price for a limited time only, making it yours for just $4.99. At that price, it's too good to ignore, but it won't be around forever.
Looking at tablet sales numbers, it's easy to assume that the iPad is already badly eclipsed by Android devices. But a closer look at those numbers reveal a different story, according to tech industry analyst Ben Bajarin, who posts his thoughts at Techopinions.com.
Apple on Tuesday unveiled new iPads that will ship in November. And with them, Apple tipped T-Mobile's hand by noting that they're available as a 4G iPad/iPad mini carrier. What's more, the basic option of 200MB per month is available for free. Now T-Mobile has outlined more details about their new plan.
In 2010 Steve Jobs unveiled the original iPad, with a big, bright 9.7-inch 1024x768 screen, and by the miracle of then-modern technology, only 0.5-inches think and 1.5lbs heavy. This morning Phil Schiller showed off not only the new 9.7-inch 2048x1536 iPad Air at 0.29-inches an 1lbs, but the new 7.9-inch 2048x1536 Retina iPad mini at 0.29-inches and 0.73lbs. Miracles of now-modern technology both.
Between them was the iPad 2, still available, though likely still only attractive to education and enterprise mass-purchasers, and 30-pin diehards, the graphically challenged iPad 3, and the powerful iPad 4. A steady march towards the future of mainstream computing appliances. No longer just technology, but simply parts of our lives.
Today at Apple's event, they announced that 170 million iPads total have been sold, making it one of their most successful product to date. Apple also boasted 475,000 dedicated iPad apps, and that usage eclipses the competing tablets - 81% vs 19%. As you might expect, the iPad also ranks at the top customer satisfaction.
On January 27, 2010 the late Steve Jobs took the stage at an Apple special event to give what was one of the most important Keynotes of his life - a life filled with important keynotes - and, once again, in the history of consumer electronics. The Mac had been introduced decades before, the iPhone only a few years, yet on that stage, at that event, Jobs would make the case that there was room for a new category of device in between them. It had to be better than both at surfing the web, handling email, enjoying photos, watching videos, listening to music, playing games, and reading ebooks. It had to be the iPad.
The iPad 5 is officially the iPad Air and it brings with it a new design that looks a lot slimmer, and feels a lot lighter, just like the iPad mini. Throw in an Apple A7 'cyclone' processor, with 64-bits of power, and an Apple M7 motion coprocessor as well. Improved LTE support, a bumped up FaceTime and iSight camera and you've got the biggest - actually, lightest - thing to happen to iPad since the original!
