The iPad, a kind of super-size iPod Touch, washailedby ApplechiefexecutiveSteve Jobs at itslaunchin January as a whole new category of electronic device, somewhere between a smartphone and a laptop computer. It has been designed as a new way to read books and magazines, to play games and to watch video, and earlyreviewsof the device were positive.
