The Evolution of Apple, First Pictures of the Apple iBoard released

Development of the iPhone began with Apple CEO Steve Jobs’ direction that Apple engineers investigate touchscreens. Apple created the device during a secretive and unprecedented collaboration with AT&T Mobility—Cingular Wireless at the time—at an estimated development cost of US$150 million over thirty months.

The iPad is a tablet computer designed, developed and marketed by Apple primarily as a platform for audio-visual media including books, periodicals, movies, music, games, and web content. At about 1.5 pounds (680 grams), its size and weight fall between those of contemporary smartphones and laptop computers. Apple released the iPad in April 2010, and sold 3 million of the devices in 80 days.

Most people don’t like the way Apple rolls out products. The company releases a device, only to roll out the “next version” a year later. The newer model usually contains only a few minor tweaks, which could have been implemented on the original (copy-paste on the iPhone anyone?).

It was this mindset that had people criticizing the iPad. “It’s just a giant iPhone,” they said. “It even runs the same OS as the iPhone and iPod Touch!” Well here’s one for the people who think Apple’s line of products has gotten just a bit too linear.

The folks over at begeek.fr have predicted the next two iterations of the Apple iPad. Behold! The iBoard and the iMat!
