The New Green Apple (iPad) Tablet Computer

The much-hyped Apple tablet, called the iPad, was revealed today, and… it may be your greenest option yet if you’re in the market for a tablet computer, e-reader, netbook, or smartbook.

At the launch, Apple CEO Steve Jobs pointed out that the iPad, which looks like a larger version of the iPhone, is arsenic free, BFR-free, mercury-free, PVC-free, and highly recyclable. It also has a 10-hour battery life, for now.

For more pictures, check out Macworld and Engadget coverage.

The biggest competition in this category could come from Hewlett-Packard (HP), Dell, and Lenovo, which all announced plans for new tablets at the 2010 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Vegas this month. Both HP and Apple have a good reputation in terms of green.

E-readers, netbooks, and smartbooks were all the rage at CES this year, but, with e-waste piling up around the world, Green Guide thinks you should skip right over them and move straight on to tablets, which will likely combine and replace all three technologies within the year.

    Man, I just don’t get it. Who wants to walk around with that size of computer when there is such cool technology available in hand size? Sure – I bet it’s amazing – but does it fit in your pocket when you go down the pub??

    Let’s be realistic: most people currently don’t need an iPad in the way they do “need” a phone or a computer. Right now, it is an entertainment device that could make one’s computing life a little better if you find the right apps. Online Poker Room Reviews | Christening Gifts

    For those who know what they will use it for, I hope that this review has clarified some things and provided enough information to make an educated decision.

    This is a very cool gadget. But I don’t think it is all too innovative. Essentially it is a big iphone.

    It strikes you when you first touch an iPad. The form just feels good, not too lightweight or heavy, nor too thin or thick. It’s sensual. It’s tactile. And that moment is a good way to spot a first-timer, too, as I observed with a few test subjects. The dead giveaway for an iPad n00b is a pause, a few breaths before hitting the “on” switch, just letting it rest against the skin. hp q2612a cartridge

    The ipad tablet is such cool technology. There is nothing better then surfing the internet then on the ipad. The touch screen is so cool to use. Apple is the best.

    This is a very cool gadget. But I don’t think it is all too innovative. Essentially it is a big iphone. There doesn’t seem to be much new technology implemented here. Just a marketing hype coupled with aesthetics. However, I want one.
