Apple announced today the reason for the short delay in shipping the new iPad. A cell phone feature has been added. AT&T will be the carrier.
The first generation will require the user to speak into the iPad as they do with the smaller iPhone. A less cumbersome method will be implemented later.
Steve Jobs of Apple said, “For the first time, people will be able to read a book and talk on the phone at the same time. Or if they prefer, they may download an e-book and listen to the book as they chat with friends.”
Apple will hold a press conference today at 2:00 PM Pacific Time for more details.
