BREAKING NEWS!! It's an iPad!!!

Rumors have been circulating for some time now, but Steve Jobs has made it official... Apple has just announced the iPad. I'm always excited about anything that Steve Jobs brings to the table, but I think this product could possibly revolutionize the way we consume information much in the same manner that the ipod changed the way we consume music.

The iPad is reported to have a 9.7 inch screen, is .5 inch thin, and will weigh about 1.5 pounds. Memory capacity will be 16 GB, 32 GB, or 64 GB. It will have a wi-fi only version, as well as a wi-fi plus 3G version. The wi-fi only version is scheduled to ship in bout 60 days.

The price will range from $499 to $829 depending on the memory capacity and the connectivity. AT&T service plans will begin at $14.99 for up to 250 GB per month, and go up to $29.99 per month for unlimited.

Jobs referenced an iBooks app that will link to the i Bookstore and thus allow the iPad to "stand on the shoulders" of Amazon's Kindle "... and go a little further." iBookstore will feature content from Penguin, Simon & Schuster, Harper Collins, Macmillan, and Hachette Book Group.

iPad will also be able to support versions of iWork.

... and here's a video about the new product
