January 27, 2010, By Radimir Bobev

The freshly announced iPad has been confirmed today by Steve Jobs in San Francisco and from what it looks like the full specifications list has a a 9.7″ IPS display, which, according to Jobs, is a version of the TFT LCD display that supports wide viewing angles, and it has full capacitive multitouch features.

For connectivity, there’s Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 2.1+, and you’ll also get an accelerometer, compass, speaker and microphone and the 30-pin connector that’s standard for Apple’s devices. The battery is stated to last for about 10 hours, which should be a killer for something with this screen, though it hasn’t been proven yet.

It uses a 1GHz Apple A4 processor, which is a new one, and will be able to decode HD video without affecting the battery life much – very impressive feat, considering even the Snapdragon can’t reach that kind of performance/power ration, so this should be interesting.

Another interesting aspect is that the Apple Tablet will sell without a contract and that it has optional 3G, which by the looks of it, will cost $130 more.
