What is an iPad?

The iPad, one of the latest innovations from Apple,  "is a tablet computer designed and developed by Apple. It is particularly marketed for consumption of media such as books and periodicals, movies, music, and games; and for general web and e-mail access. At about 700 grams, its size and weight are between most contemporary smartphones and laptop computers." - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IPad
