iPad is the latest innovative product developed by Apple which is similar to the older (and smaller) iPod Touch and iPhone. But the large (9.7-inch LED-backlit IPS display), high-resolution screen makes iPad absolutely perfect for watching any kind of video from HD movies and TV shows to podcasts and music videos including MPEG-4 (MP4, M4V), H.264, MOV, etc. We can get a lot of music and video content from iTunes store.
