The rumors were mostly true! Yesterday’s leaked name certainly turned out to be accurate, at any rate; this morning’s announcement from Apple CEO Steve Jobs revealed that the long-rumored device is, in fact, named “iPad.”
Details are flying in as the Apple presentation progresses, but plenty of gaming specs and companies have already been announced, including major players like EA and Gameloft. The iPad will be half an inch thick, feature a 10″ display, and claims to run for 10 solid hours on a single battery charge — even while playing video. What’s more, it will run “virtually all” existing iPhone apps, unmodified, allowing it to work with (nearly) the entire existing library of games.
How much is it, and when does it come out, Steve-o?
