Apple’s New Tablet, the iPad, for AV

iPad The technophiles, especially Apple groupies, have been eagerly waiting for (and speculating about) the official announcement about Apple’s new tablet computer. Today, Steve Jobs, along with a slew of Apple executives and developers, unveiled the iPad. With a starting price of $499, this sleek tablet could make a big impact on the AV industry.

A few uses:

  • In conference rooms instead of significantly-more-expensive touch panel displays (with the right software- perhaps with the newly released Crestron XPanel for Mac?)
  • In classrooms replacing textbooks, scientific calculators, pocket translators, calendars and desktop computers with one device
  • For presenters, iWork – Keynote allows users to present natively by connecting to a projector

What other uses can you think of?
