CUPERTINO, Calif., May 31 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — Apple® today announced that iPad™ sales have topped two million in less than 60 days since its launch on April 3. Apple began shipping iPad in Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Spain, Switzerland and the UK this past weekend. iPad will be available in nine more countries in July and additional countries later this year.

“Customers around the world are experiencing the magic of iPad, and seem to be loving it as much as we do,” said Steve Jobs, Apple’s CEO. “We appreciate their patience, and are working hard to build enough iPads for everyone.”

iPad allows users to connect with their apps, content and the Internet in a more intimate, intuitive and fun way than ever before. Users can browse the web, read and send email, enjoy and share photos, watch HD videos, listen to music, play games, read ebooks and much more, all using iPad’s revolutionary Multi-Touch™ user interface. iPad is 0.5 inches thin and weighs just 1.5 pounds-thinner and lighter than any laptop or netbook-and delivers up to 10 hours of battery life.*

Developers have created over 5,000 exciting new apps for iPad that take advantage of its Multi-Touch user interface, large screen and high-quality graphics. iPad will run almost all of the more than 200,000 apps on the App Store, including apps already purchased for your iPhone® or iPod touch®.

*Battery life depends on device settings, usage and other factors. Actual results vary.

Lovin it loving it loving it.

Skype over 3G now available for iPhone and iPad

May 30, 2010 Leave a comment

Yesterday I did my first Skype to mobile phone call with my newly
purchased iPad and was pleasantly surprised with the quality.

My mom and brother in Capetown, South Africa was just as happy hearing
the voice of her son who frequently gets stuck inside technology and
forgets about calling..(with a phone that is)

The calls were made from my iPad while in the garden over wifi
connection, and shortly thereafter I saw there was an update for Skype.

Previously when you tried to make a Skype call without being connected
to wifi you would get a message like below:

You cannot make skype over 3g due to contractual arrangements.

This has changed, which means there will be a massive revolutionnin
how we make and receive calls in the near future.

Look closely at the screenshot ofthe iodate to Skype which was
releasednon the 29th of May 2010 below (taken from my iPhone which I’m
using to write this blogpost)
