Posted in iPad by Darrin Olson on March 7th, 2010

Apple iPad will not tether to iPhoneWhile the tech world is anxiously awaiting the launch of Apple’s iPad, a number questions still looming around the exact details of the device and its functionality. One of those questions which was queried directly to Steve Jobs himself was answered today, apparently by Steve Jobs himself.

The Swedish site Slashat.se reports they had sent a question directly to Apple’s CEO asking if the WiFi version of the iPad will support tethering to the iPhone, allowing 3G data access to the iPad. To this the answer came back simply as: “No. Sent from my iPhone.”

It’s official. The iPad is launching in the US on April 3. The 3G model is coming later in the month. Pre-orders start on March 12. We still don’t have an exact date for the 3G model, but we know it’s in late April. Pre-orders start a week from today.

In Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Spain, Switzerland and the UK, both the Wi-Fi and 3G models are launching simultaneously in “late April.” Will there be shortages? How many native iPad apps will launch with it? Still so many questions.

The iPad is nothing if you can’t take it by the pool and show off to your friends. But water is the natural enemy of iGoods. TrendyDigital can help protect your iPad with the WaterGuard Waterproof Case for iPad. It will cost you just $19.99 on Amazon.

It fits all versions of the iPad snugly and protects it from all things water. It also comes with an adjustable strap that lets you wear it around your neck or shoulders, which is bound to look odd.

Will there be an iPad shortage at launch?

Posted in iPad by Conner Flynn on March 1st, 2010

Peter Misek from Canaccord Adams says that the iPad could have some components supply issues that would limit the number of units available worldwide at launch to 300,000 units for the month of March. Apparently, there’s an unspecified production problem at the contracting company that manufactures the iPad.

They had hoped to have 1M units ready by launch. Apple had said during the iPad’s unveiling that the iPad would be available “worldwide” in “60 days” for the WiFi version and in 90 day for the 3G enabled version, so maybe this will only affect the WiFi version?

Apple in talks to cut TV show prices for iPad

Posted in Apple by Shane McGlaun on February 11th, 2010

Sure, the iPad was a bit disappointing to many who waited so long to see the device finally revealed. Yeah the name of the gadget sounds like something a geeky girl might need once a month or so, but Apple is expecting to sell gobs of the thing.

Apple also apparently thinks that many of the users who buy will be using the iPad for watching TV and video. The Wall Street Journal reports that Apple is in negotiations with TV studios to reduce the price of TV show episodes for the iPad that is shipping soon.

Notion Ink’s Adam Tablet to have Flash, 1080p, twice the battery life of the iPad

Posted in Tablet PC by Conner Flynn on February 9th, 2010

What’s not to love here? Flash, a longer battery life, and 1080p for starters. This is how Notion Ink is hoping its Android-powered Adam tablet will win your heart. Apparently they’re toying with the idea of launching two different models, one 12.9mm thin and one 11.6mm thin, which suggests different display options.

CEO Rohan Shravan told SlashGear that with the Nvidia chip and Pixel Qi screen, the Adam will boast a battery life at least twice as long as the iPad. Then there’s the 1080p video where the iPad has only 576p, and as mentioned Flash. This could be your new favorite tablet.

Apple may lower price of the iPad

Posted in iPad by Conner Flynn on February 8th, 2010

We all love a bargain, and with the prices of Apple gear being what they are, you would love to save some money right? According to Credit Suisse analyst Bill Shope, Apple executives have said that the pricing will be “nimble” on the iPad. It depends on the demand.

Now that’s not the same as an official confirmation that there will be a price drop, but it makes a lot of sense. If they lower the $499 price point they might actually have competitors worried. A lower price would certainly help any fence-sitters make up their minds to buy.

Many people love the idea of the iPad, but don’t like the LCD screen. If that’s how you feel then check out what Yinlips has in store. Their iPad lookalike features an E-Ink screen.

Of course there are some downsides. No color here and it won’t run any of those apps you love, but if you don’t mind the trade-off this device may be for you. It features a 6″ E-Ink touchscreen, 20 hours of battery life, and supports PDF, TXT, HTML, and some photo formats.
