First iPad Ad Airs During Academy Awards, Steve Jobs At the Event

As they did with the first iPhone ad, Apple yesterday aired the first iPad ad during the Academy Awards. No new information was revealed about the device, although the ad shows off many of the included applications and serves as a public announcement of the April 3rd launch date. The ad can be viewed on Apple’s site or below via YouTube.

On a related note, Steve Jobs was spotted at the event according to CNET. He didn’t take any interviews and was likely in attendance to support Pixar and Disney, of which he is the largest single shareholder.
