Apple iPad: like a large iPhone with a chunky bezel

Steve Jobs has unveiled the eagerly awaited new tablet device – known as the iPad – and our first impressions is that it looks just like a large iPhone with its  9.7″ screen – but not as pretty.

The body is chunkier than we  expected for an Apple product, with a large bezel surrounding the screen.

With a screen that large, web browsing looks to be a fabulous experience, and ol’Jobsy is proudly showing off its emailing and surfing abilities.

There’s no physical keyboard, so users will have to type on an enlarged iPhone-style virtual keyboard – we’re not sure we’d fancy typing out anything more than a short email on that.

As expected, the iPad comes with built in iPod, calendar, high def movie player, photo slideshows, Google maps and all the usual Apple stuff.
