After 2 months of using Apple’s most significant device since the iPhone, the Apple iPad, I can attest without a doubt that it has really set a new standard in mobile productivity and entertainment. It’s a true-blue game changer, which just recently – although not entirely because of it – “buried” its main competitor products – the Microsoft Courier and HP Slate.
After a month of absence, I’m back with fangs and loads of news and tips to share! First off, the debut of the iPhone 4. It was stunning especially with its (highly debatable) retina display, Face Time video chat and increased battery life. This is, by far, the best device ever announced after the iPad this year. Yup, call me Apple-fan-junkie but I’m just really amazed with Apple’s way of introducing their product.

There is no doubt that Apple and Steve Jobs make the best lethal combination of telling everyone, “Hey, we’ve got something new!”. However, with their recent product launch this morning (in the US), they may have amazed me with HOW they launched their latest creation but have they amazed me with WHAT they launched? Let me share you my thoughts.
