The iPad 1 is the first-generation iPad from Apple. Announced in 2010, it was released in the United States before being released to other countries. It has an Apple A4 processor as well as a 9.7” touchscreen that has a 1,024 by 768-pixel liquid crystal display. The glass is both fingerprint and scratch resistant.
Whereas the iPhone and iPod Touch allows screen orientation to switch between landscape and portrait, the iPad 1 allows users to use all four screen orientations. The iPad 1 originally ran on the iOS 3.2 operating system. It eventually was updated to the iOS 4.2.
The original iPad has a 1GHz processor along with 256 MB of RAM. It also possesses a PowerVR SGX535 GPU. It was available in 16, 32, or 64 GB for flash memory. There was also a Wi-Fi iPad 1 that came out a little later than the original.
An iPad 1 is a good tablet to purchased refurbished because the cost is much less than purchasing a brand-new iPad 1.
