∞ Apple posts iPad commercial

Apple on Sunday posted its first commercial for the iPad. The ad is viewable from the gallery page of the iPad Web site. The ad shows many of the iPad’s features like viewing pictures, browsing the Web, and reading books. iBooks is one of Apple’s most anticipated features and is one of the reasons consumers are beginning to lose interest in the Kindle.

Apple announced last week that the iPad would be available on April 3 in the U.S. and in late April in Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Spain, Switzerland and the UK.
