Slide 5: Introducing the Revolutionary iPad Touch Slide Designs by Heath Nicholas This changes everything… Slide 6: So What’s so special about the iPad? Slide Designs by Heath Nicholas Lets start with the basics: First things first. Anytime you tout a great new product, there is always a critic. The first 20 seconds after the launch announcement, people were already saying, so what, it’s a giant iPhone. OK, acknowledged, this device does do absolutely everything that the iPhone does, AND it is significantly larger. However, this device does not stop there. Let’s go beyond the obvious and see what else this extraordinary machine can do. The performance in this fine machine is FAR superior to the iPhone. There are double the amount of touchpoints per square inch than the iPhone, so the touch accuracy is amazing! Next, look at the graphics on this baby! We are oohing and aheing over these new super flat panel LED Televisions that are coming out because they are so thin. I say so what, this is a thin LED, with the extraordinary performance of a top of the line interactive human interface device. Slide 7: So What’s so special about the iPad?

For cutting edge technology, the $499 Opening Pricepoint makes this product very affordable for MANY consumers. A way to get around sticker shock for cutting edge technolory is to offer a lower purchase price which is subsidized by long and expensive service contracts. Not with iPad. When you buy an iPad, it’s yours! NO SERVICE CONTRACTS! Although there are not contracts, Apple has made arrangements for VERY affordable service with AT&T, just $14.99 for 250 MB, or $29.99 for Unlimited! Slide 9: So What’s so special about the iPad?
