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.
