San Francisco, Jan 28: Apple on Wednesday, Jan 27, launched the much awaited tablet-style computer, the iPad.
Speaking at the launch here, Apple's CEO Steve Job said, "It's so much more intimate than a laptop and so much more capable than a smart phone."
Jobs demonstrated how the iPad is used for surfing the Web with Apple's Safari browser.
He further said, "The iPad will also be better for reading books, playing games and watching video than either a laptop or a smart phone."
Jobs typed an e-mail using an on-screen keyboard and flipped through photo albums by flicking his finger across the screen.
