iPad Ad Premieres At Oscars – Like iPhone Did

by Klaus on March 8, 2010

in iPad

Like the “Hello” ad for the iPhone premiered at the Oscars some years ago, an iPad ad now also appeared for the first time, at the Oscars.

The background music in the ad is “There Goes My Love” by The Blue Van. I’m  sure the song can be found in the iTunes Store if you want to buy it 🙂

The ad shows the iPad being used in different ways such as watching a movie, reading a book, displaying photos, edit document and doing e-mail. iPad should be ready for pre-orders on March 12th in the US and ships April 3rd.

I’m sure it won’t. But if they find a way to provide movies, TV shows and iBooks to more parts of the world than just US and a few other countries, then the iPad (or version 2 of it) will surely be popular.

*Most* are in Canada too. Although movie rentals are getting rare for iTunes these days (purchase only).

I don’t think it is going to be a success. It does the same what you can get from your laptop and it is too big to take it with you.

It’s still a different experience, using a big touchscreen tablet, rather than a laptop with keyboard and mouse input. We’ll see how it goes 🙂

I agree, but I don’t think it will be a failure either. No doubt that iPad version 2 will be even better, so I’m looking very much forward to that one. Thanks for retweeting and commenting 🙂

It will be a hit. Just think that this is just the 1st generation and maybe the next generations will be more powerful.

I just can’t think about this gadget as useful tool. It is worse than laptop (lack of flash and multitasking) and it is worse than iphone (it is much bigger so it must stay at home)
