Apple Releases New 'iPad is Iconic' Commercial

Apple today released a new iPad commercial entitled "iPad is Iconic", airing the ad on primetime television and posting it to the company's YouTube page to show off a number of high-profile applications for the popular tablet device.

As with previous commercials in the series, the new ad offers the same soundtrack and follows the same theme of displaying a series of quick shots of the iPad's capabilities interspersed with corresponding single-word descriptions relevant to the "iPad is..." theme: "fresh" (djay), "tickets" (American Airlines HD), "news" (The Wall Street Journal), "stories" (iBooks), a running counter racing past 60,000 iPad apps available in the App Store, "students" (Pages), "teachers" (Noterize), "hollywood" (Movie★Slate), and "iconic" (Vanity Fair Magazine).
