Ongoing commentary at Brad Stone's Bits Blog

Half an inch thin. Weighs 1.5 pounds. 9.7-inch IPS display — super high quality, great angle of views, Mr. Jobs says.

Full capacitive multi-touch screen, same as the iPhone — “super responsive, super precise,” Jobs says.

The iPad is powered by Apple’s own custom silicon, Jobs says — a 1 GHz A4 chip,, 16 GB of memory, 32 or 64 Gigabytes of storage.

There’s Wi-Fi, 802.11n, and the latest Bluetooth. 3G wireless on the most expensive model. Accelerometer, compass, speaker, microphone.
