Apple on Friday disclosed the launch date of its iPad product in a response to rumours about the potential delay of the device. The iPad is coming in on April 3, 2010.

“A magical and revolutionary product at an unbelievable price. […] Coming April 3,” a statement on Apple’s web-site reads. Apple also said that it would start to accept pre-orders onto the iPad slate-type personal computers on the 12th of March.

Apple iPad is based on Apple’s own A4 system-on-chip designed by PA Semi team that contains ARM processor core at 1GHz. The SoC is tailored for ultra-mobile applications and can enable device to work for up to 10 hours in active mode (reading, watching videos or listening to music) with display brightness reduced by 50%. The iPad is equipped with 9.7” multi-touch IPS LCD screen with 768x1024 resolution; 16GB, 32GB or 64GB of flash storage; USB, Wi-Fi 802.11n, Bluetooth 2.1+EDR and 3G (special versions only) connectivity as well as SD card reader. The product is 9.56” (24.3cm) in height, 7.47” (19cm) in width and has 0.5” (1.3cm) thickness. Apple iPad weighs 1.5 pounds (0.68kg). The tablet PC runs iPhone OS 3.2 with all of its pros and cons and can also run applications developed for iPhone as well as specially designed software.

iPad will be available for a suggested retail price of $499 for the 16GB model, $599 for the 32GB model, $699 for the 64GB model. The Wi-Fi + 3G models of iPad will be available in later in the U.S. and selected countries for a suggested retail price of $629 for the 16GB model, $729 for the 32GB model and $829 for the 64GB model.
