Presentation: "KEYNOTE: iPad: Mobile Computing Redefined"

Time: Friday 09:10 - 10:15

Location: Sterling Room

Apple is positioning the iPad as a new category of mobile device between a smartphone and a laptop, and better at a set of key tasks than either of them. It is a device more intimate than a laptop and more expansive than a smartphone. iPad is Apple’s answer to the rapidly growing Netbook segment, but more than that, it is a new product that meets a set of consumers’ demands that have been addressed through the use of a variety of devices before. Just one month after the public release of the iPad in Europe, Raven reviews the state of the iPad ecosystem, where it’s headed, and its impact on content creators, app developers, and consumers.
