Apple posts QuickTime video of CEO Steve Jobs' 'iPad' keynote

Apple Wednesday evening made available through its Web site a QuickTime video stream of its media event during which its new tablet device, dubbed the "iPad" was introduced to the public by CEO Steve Jobs.

The Cupertino-based company used a near hour-and-a-half presentation to announce its new media device, the iPad. Standing with a foot in both the iPhone and the Mac worlds, the iPad is, according to Jobs, "our most advanced technology in a magical and revolutionary device at an unbelievable price."

"iPad creates and defines an entirely new category of devices that will connect users with their apps and content in a much more intimate, intuitive, and fun way than ever before," said Jobs.

The iPad sports a 9.7 inch display and includes a 1GHz Apple-designed A4 processor with integrated graphics processing.

Jobs said the device can get up to 10 hours of battery life when watching video and will last up to a month on standby.

The iPad comes in capacities of 16, 32, and 64GB, starts at $499 and comes with optional 3G support for an extra $130.
