Mike Cane thinks it is ‘highly likely’ that Apple may follow a similar path for the iPad – in terms of initial TV ads – as they did with the original iPhone back in 07:
Three years ago, Apple debuted its TV ad for the iPhone during the Oscars.
Will they follow suit with the iPad and also open up pre-orders the next day? I think this is highly likely.
I’d never seen that original iPhone ad – great stuff. February 25th – a previously rumored date for pre-orders starting – has come and gone, so Mike’s theory seems as good as any right now. Movies and iPad – I’m sure Apple’s ad people can work with that a bit. :)
