The classic children’s book Alice in Wonderland is completely transformed into a fully interactive, animated and immersive reading experience in its first ever iBook rendition.
Every page on this iBook comes to life with interactive elements and real physics. Tilt the iPad and Alice will grow big as a house, or shrink to just six inches tall. Play with the White Rabbit’s pocket watch and it realistically swings and bounces. Hand out sweets that bounce and collide with the magical talking Dodo.
Try doing that with your Kindle.
If you already have an iPad, the lite version is, of course, free and the full version will set you back US$9 or about RM30. Considering a trad children’s pop-up costs about the same price or possibly more, we reckon books like this on iPad is really bang for the buck.
Check out the video after jump. Apparently the demo shown is the lite edition.

He said “No. It’ll still be near the end of April, like we said“. We reitarate, he said that.
Today Apple issues a media advisory saying that the international shipments of iPads will be delayed by a month.
“Although we have delivered more than 500,000 iPads during its first week, demand is far higher than we predicted and will likely continue to exceed our supply over the next several weeks“, the advisory read.
Apparently the call to delay the global release of the iPad was a “difficult decision” for Apple to make.
So for all you iPad hopefuls out there, we’ll all have to hold out unitl the end of May.
Apple will announce international pricing and begin taking online pre-orders on Monday, May 10. So be sure to mark your calendars.
You’d better save your money…the iPad is going global.
During the iPhone 4.0 unveiling, Jobs was queried by one of the attendees on whether the international debut of the iPad will be affected given that there is a strong demand for the device in the US.
Jobs’ asnwer was simple, straight forward and crsytal clear:
“No. It’ll still be near the end of April, like we said“.
Very reassuring indeed. That’s just a couple of weeks from now and we can’t wait.
In the meantime, if you can’t wait that long, you might want to consider making your very own iPad. Or if you really want, there are services available that can arrange for you to purchase an iPad direct from the US.
For many of us, the iPad, for now at least, is just an illusion. A fragment of our immagination. As real and as tangible as smoke…because its not officially on sale here in Malaysia yet.
That shouldn’t stop you from getting one.
With the right selection of Lego bricks and some time in your hands, you can make your very own iPad.
Ok so it doesn’t support multitouch and have almost no storage space but we reckon it’d be cool to have one on the living room coffee table just for fun!
Everybody wants an iPad, what else it new?
Malaysians can now get in on the iPAd action with a website called vshub.com.
The Virtual Shopping Hub is offering a concierge service that allows Malaysians to order an iPad from the US through them. They will act as proxy and sort out all the nitty gritty like shipping and customs for a 5% service charge. A US$5 shipping and handling charge also applies.
Now what’s left for us to do is find the cash to get one.
