Product name and
By late 2009, iSlate and iTablet were among
speculated names for this product.
The product, with his orginal name, was announced
on January 27, 2010, at an Apple press conference at
the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco.
Its name is a subject of various criticism, because it
shares its name with existing products, such as Fujitsu
iPAD, that is a mobile multi-fuctional device by
Japanese company Fujitsu.
Some media noted its similarity to “pad”, the
common name for a sanitary napkin, and said that this
would make women less likely to buy the product.
Others noted that “iPad” sounds like “iPod” in
various regional accents, etc.
