The beautiful 9.7-inch high-resolution display makes the iPad perfect for watching any kind of video: from HD movies and TV shows to podcasts and music videos. You can buy or rent downloads right to your iPad video library from the iTunes store or you can upload your own content for your own viewing pleasure when you sync from your iTunes library on your computer. If you want to load the iPad up with your own ripped or downloaded videos, they'll need to be 720p or less and in h.264.
Browse your video library by poster art in grid view. When you see something you want to watch, tap it and it starts playing instantly. Turn iPad sideways to watch in widescreen view. Double-tap to switch between widescreen and full-screen views. Even tap to browse through chapters.
With the lithium-polymer battery in the iPad, you will be able to get up to 10 hours of video playback.
