Apple iPad

NOW AVAILABLE FOR PRE-ORDER (In your hands April 3rd)
The granddaddy of all Apple rumors finally came true today. It's not going to change the world, but it might get you reading more books. The Apple iPad ($499-$829) is the now-not-so-mythical tablet God King, featuring a 9.7-inch Multi-Touch LED-backlit display with IPS technology that's packed into a half-inch thick piece of aluminum that weighs just 1.5 pounds. Shipping with slick apps for web, email, photos, videos, music, and eBooks, the iPad can also run most current iPhone apps, small or upscaled in full screen. Thanks to a new iBook Store (goodbye Kindle, nice knowing you), you'll be able to buy and download books to read, just like you do music and movies on your iPhone. The iPad is powered by a custom 1GHz Apple A4 chip and offers an insane 10-hours of (video watching) battery life and a month of standby time. The iPad comes in two versions — one with Wi-Fi and one with both Wi-Fi and 3G. There's also a bunch of unexpected accessories, including a Keyboard Dock and a Portfolio case that can double as a stand. Get your iPad in late March.

  • Amazon Kindle 2

    With over 500,000 units sold, the Amazon Kindle e-book reader might just be the coolest thing to happen to books since Gutenberg, but just because something isn't broken, doesn't mean you can't make it better. Enter Kindle 2 ($359), a svelte device overhaul featuring the sort of upgrades that seem to imply that Amazon actually listens to its customers. Weighing in at just 10.2-ounces, the K2 has a larger screen than its predecessor and can still hold a charge for days. It includes the built in 3G wireless (for no extra fee), allowing you to download content, lookup subjects on Wikipedia and more. If you found you ever found yourself on the verge of ordering a Kindle, but couldn't pull the trigger, your salvation is here. Kindle 2 will ship on Feb. 24, so pre-order yours today.

    While it's not the sleekest looking gadget out there, Amazon's new Kindle ($400) may finally make eBooks mainstream. The portable reading device uses free, built-in EVDO wireless to download digital books, magazines, newspapers and blogs for reading on the go. It sports a super crisp E-ink display that works great even in bright sunlight, and can hold over 200 titles. There are almost 90,000 books now available for Kindle, with most costing $10.
