Apple iPad Tablet Video Thoughts
With a 9.7-inch touch-screen display and a battery life of 10 hours, the iPad will offer the most robust viewing experience yet available on an Apple mobile device. Ranging from 16GB to 64GB in storage size and $499 to $829 in price, you can now carry far more video than previously possible and play that video for far longer than ever before. However, viewed in landscape mode, widescreen movies on the iPad only take up about half of the screen’s display. Reformatted movies, conversely, take up the entire screen — and the tablet is basically all screen, as there’s just one button and a thin strip of black framing the device.
