Surprised or not by Apple’s amazing and magical announcement this month, the incremental advancements of the all-new iPad (no number designation, so a bit confusing for the folks who own the iPad2) have gone and done something unexpected.

While there is no Siri assistant (just a voice dictation app), no USB slots (for add ons) and no places to put a memory card (a very basic requisite), for the first time the features of this device are as close to what we wanted to see in the second – if not the original – iPad. And the qualities are so that we think certain technologies may soon be ready to be retired and thrown away.

March 7th 2012 will be game day for not athletes, not movie stars, nor politicians, but the citizens of the world – and by that we mean Apple devotees (wink, wink).

On Wednesday, Apple CEO Steve Jobs made a bid to create a new computing category by unveiling a tablet computer called the “iPad”.

The high-tech gadget is a 9.7-inch multitouch computer that starts at $499 for a 16 GB model that uses Wi-Fi to connect to the Internet. A 3G model that can reach the Web through AT&T’s network costs $130 more, plus $29.99 for unlimited data ($14.99 for 250 gigs).

The first iPads are scheduled to ship in 60 days, the 3G versions 30 days later.

The device runs most of the 140,000 iPhone applications out of the box, giving it a huge headstart. And as Jobs points out, he’s already got a big customer base ready to buy it — loyal Apple users who have bought 75 million iPhones and iPod touches and given Apple 125 million credit card numbers.

Jobs credits Apple’s success to working at the intersection of technology and liberal arts, and he sees the iPad as a continuation of that tradition.

It is, as he puts it, “Our most advanced technology in a magical and revolutionary device at an unbelievable price.
