We’re thrilled to announce that the Apple iPad Tablet is real, since it’s just been announced by Steve Jobs, during Apple’s official event. Emotions aside, this is truly a bigger iPhone, with a 9.7 inch multitouch capacitive display, 16, 32 or 64 GB of internal memory a 1 GHz Apple A4 chip on board.

The device supports Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR, WiFi, it comes with an accelerometer, Mobile Safari, a compass, speaker and microphone. Of course, like we supposed, the iPad uses iPhone apps, it uses the iTunes and iPhoto services and it features a customizable Home screen. There’s also a screen locking mechanism on board, just like the one on the iPhone.

The virtual keyboard it shows is great, there’s also a cool email client on board, support for YOuTube HD, Google Maps and uber-cool videogaming. Of course, Flash is still lacking…  Waiting for the prices and release dates, folks!
