Apple's new tablet will not be directed just to consumers or the educational crowd. Apple will target the business community and enterprise market as well. AppleInsider.com reports a few features features unannounced during the unveiling.
Apple has ported over iWork, its Office-compatible productivity suite, while giving it a multitouch makeover. Aligned with the idea of using the iPad as a Keynote presentation tool, the iPad now supports VGA output for driving a projector directly. Users can markup slides and point with a virtual laser pointer as the presentation continues.
Sources who talked to Apple's business unit also say the company is working on some additional features that haven't been publicly announced yet. These include support for direct network printing from iPad apps, as well as support for accessing shared files from a local file server.
I believe this will be the first of many "hidden" features we have yet to uncover on the iPad.
