Apple uses Oscars to advertise iPad

Cupertino evangelist Apple used the Oscars ceremony yesterday to place an advert for its up-and-coming iPad.

The iPad, the first version of which will be released in the USA on April 3rd, is a 9.7-inch touchscreen gizmo using a PA Semi designed microprocessor.

The advert is a quick runthrough of the capabilities Apple thinks the iPad will offer, including the ability to read newspapers and books, and swivel the screen.

The advert relies on visual cues rather than words, as you can see in the brief advert, below.
