苹苹果公司首席执行长乔布斯(steve jobs)揭开了该公司倍受期待的平板电脑的神秘面纱,希望这款名为ipad的新设备能够借到iphone成功之东风。
  apple inc. chief executive steve jobs unveiled a highly anticipated tablet-style device called the ipad, hoping to take the success of its iphone to a new category of gadgets.

  the sleek multimedia device will be sold in various models that cost between $499 and $829. apple will sell some models with data plans from at&t inc., that cost $30 a month for unlimited data but do not require a contract.

  mr. jobs took the stage at a crowded event in san francisco to show the device, which has a 9.7-inch color display and touch-screen keyboard, and can play movies, books, games and other media.

  大多数为iphone设计的应用程序均可在ipad上运行。随机还内置了itunes商店以及全新的ibooks商店。后者用于销售主要图书出版商发行的作品,售价低至4.99美元,是亚马逊公司(amazon.com inc.)的kindle及其它电子阅读器的最新竞争者。
  the devices will run most applications designed for the iphone and comes with the itunes store as well as a new ibooks store which will sell works from major book publishers for as little as $4.99, providing new competition for amazon.com inc.'s kindle and other e-readers.

  'we want to kick off 2010 by introducing a truly magical and revolutionary product today,' chief executive steve jobs, wearing his trademark black turtleneck and jeans, told the crowd.

  mr. jobs said the ipad, which apple says has a 10-hour battery life, was a more intimate experience than using a laptop. 'i can take a flight from sf to tokyo and watch video the whole way on one charge,' mr. jobs said.

  mr. jobs, who occasionally sat in a chair as he demonstrated the device, said the ipad is built with an apple-made 1ghz chip. the machine will come with 16, 32 or 64 gb of flash storage. it also has wi-fi and bluetooth capabilities, and higher priced models will have the ability to connect with 3g cellular networks.

  tablet computers have existed for more than two decades, with little success. mr. jobs acknowledged apple will have to work to convince consumers who already have smart phones and laptops that they need this gadget. ``in order to really create a new category of devices, those devices are going to have to be far better at doing some key tasks,'' mr. jobs said. ``we think we've got the goods. we think we've done it.''

  the ipad debuts after months of speculation in the technology press and blogosphere. photographs of supposed mock-ups appeared on popular blogs months ago and reporters followed every link in apple's supply chain to uncover details about the machine. the product's launch--not confirmed by apple until wednesday's event--has been built into forecasts of the company's performance by wall street analysts since at least november.

  the introduction comes just two days after apple announced its best-ever quarterly profits and revenue, though some of that performance came from an accounting change. backed by the strength of its iphone franchise and macintosh computers, the cupertino, calif.-based company appears to be on track to reach $45 billion in annual sales when it closes out the current fiscal year.

  apple shares have more than doubled over the last year, hitting an all-time high of $215.59 on jan. 5. apple shares, which initially fell during mr. jobs's presentation, rose 1.5% to 208.99. some analysts see the company's shares rising as high as $285 over the next 12 months.

  ipad 将能够运行现有的iphone应用软件。纽约时报公司(new york times co.)以及游戏生产商gameloft s.a.等公司正特别为ipad开发应用软件。纽约时报公司数字业务高级副总裁尼森霍兹(martin nisenholtz)说,能够成为下一代数字化新闻业的先驱,我们感到无比兴奋。
  the new device will be able to play existing iphone apps. companies such as the new york times co. and game-maker gameloft s.a. are developing apps especially for the ipad. 'we're incredibly psyched to pioneer the next version of digital journalism,' said martin nisenholtz, senior vice president of digital operations at the new york times.
